Happy New Year all! I am looking for old style chicken wire glass. Does anyone know of a source for new glass?

30 seconds after reading this post, I plopped "Wire Reinforced Safety glass" on Google and the following site popped up. I'm sure there are more. figure if I can locate this in 60 seconds there should be more to suite your needs.

If your looking for a list source for producers of wire glass, Thomasnet is a great resource for any need that your researching. Now with the computer age your not stuck with the phonebook sized catalog and fumbling through looking for what you want see link below to makers of wire glass.

Browsing web, it seems while chicken wire - or poultry netting - is still being made. However, it is not being used to reinforce glass.

So what can we or the antique structure people do when chicken wire glass is needed for a restoration?

Wire reinforced glass is available at any well stocked glass company, and it is not expensive. I recently was involved in restoration of a CB&Q caboose and we looked into wire reinforced glass for the end doors. We ended up choosing tempered laminated glass, but I was able to get quotes from three different places in the Minneapolis area. Look in the yellow pages under glass and glazing.

Mr. Pullman, thanks for your help, I did see one supplier Bear glass may have it, I will contact them tomorrow. I cannot use the standard diamond shaped wire reinforcement. I need the octagonal shaped chicken wire or poultry netting style of reinforcement.

Hamster, same as above I need the chicken wire/poultry netting octagonal wire style.

This is for two projects. I need consistency, and larger sized pieces (which is why I can't go the salvaged glass route).

Sully, good find on this product source, another example of knowing something is out there it's just finding it. My wife and I have been considering using this type of product in an upcoming station project.
Nice.
