Desilvering a Mirror to Make a Window.

We created a mirror with a "window" in it by removing the protective paint on the back of the mirror and then the silver, exposing the clear glass. The mirror was then installed in front of a TV, for the ultimate high-tech effect. We experimented with a number of chemicals before we found the right combinations to remove the paint and the silver without destroying the vinyl mask.  Fortunately, we found some that were relatively non-toxic but effective.  Once we figured out the process it was not too difficult, but it requires a steady hand and lots of patience.

In the photo below, the guys are admiring their creation in the workshop before installation. Javier and Wesler and the bottom half of Carlo, the photographer, are reflected in the mirror, while Javier's hand shows behind the clear window.

Admiring the Window they Created

The next photo shows the final result.  The fuzzy rectangle in the middle is the TV behind the mirror.  Soon we will post videos of the whole process.  We think it looks great!

Our Latest Glass and Metal Railing Project Using

These elegant "twin" glass railings were just completed today.  Panels of 1/2" tempered glass were dry glazed into an aluminum shoe system. The shoe was then covered with brushed stainless steel cladding and the final touch was a rounded brushed stainless steel  railing.  A great look!

Freeport, Bahamas for Inspection of Completed Glass Railings: Beautiful!

We just completed a glass, metal and cable railing installation project at the new Freeport Government Complex in the Bahamas and took a short trip to inspect the work, and it was very impressive.  116 pieces of custom-shaped 1/2" tempered glass were installed perfectly - not a single broken or mis-measured piece.  We are proud to show some "after" pictures of the final result (although the building is still under construction) that can be compared with the "before" photos posted below on May 6.
