California's Leading Glass and Aluminum Manufacturer / Fabricator

PRL Glass Systems Inc., based in Los Angeles County, California is a supplier of complete Architectural Glass and Metal Systems to the Contract Glazing Industry. Our product lines include complete All Glass Entrance Systems, Aluminum Storefront Systems, complete Hardware packages, Handrails / Guard Railing Systems, All Glass Shower Systems and Fabricated Glass with the highest architectural standards and contemporary designs.

We are a very unique company in that we fabricate both Architectural Glass and Architectural Aluminum products all in our in-house facilities, one of a few companies capable of producing complete Glass and Metal Systems. This single source advantage gives architects and design professionals an edge, providing convenience, quality control and the fastest production times in the industry.

The Tempered and Laminated glass products we fabricate include: Tempered Glass (1/8" through 3/4" thick) including 5/8" and 3/4" Low Iron Glass, Insulated Glass Units, Laminated Glass, Opaci-coat Spandrel Glass, Low E, Tinted and Textured Glass as well as Table Tops, Mirrors and Custom Sandblasted Glass. Our furnace capacity for tempered glass includes widths up to 98" and lengths up to 184". Our laminated glass capacity is 98" x 153". Custom architectural edge work produced by our craftsmen and state of the art machinery is unsurpassed.

Our 2400 ton Metal / Aluminum Extrusion Press has a die diameter capacity of 8-1/2". This allows us to produce the majority of the Architectural Metal / Aluminum Storefront Frames, Glass Door Profiles and Handrail extrusions that we offer. Some of our Metal / Aluminum extrusions include:

  • Center-Glazed Storefronts: 1-3/4 x 4, 1-3/4 x 4-1/2 and 2 x 4-1/2
  • Offset-Glazed Storefronts: 1-3/4 x 4, and 2 x 4-1/2
  • Architectural Curtain Wall Systems: 6", 7" and 10"
  • Wet set and Dry set Glass Door Rails

We also manufacture a full line of UL approved Tubular Panic Door Systems and Hardware, complete Commercial Ladder, Pull and Handles for All Glass Entrance Door Systems. We stock a large variety of Architectural Glass and Aluminum Door Hardware including Closers, Euro-Style Glass Door Fittings, Push-Pull Handles, Manual and Electromagnetic Shear Locks, Electric Strikes, Panic Devices, Perimeter Framing and Channels; everything that goes into producing Complete Storefront Systems.

PRL's architectural metal fabrication machinery includes brake presses up to 12' long. We stock a full line of stainless steel, brass and anodized aluminum sheets. Some of the products our Brake Metal Department produces are Monumental Full Framed Clad Doors and Frames, Transom Panels, Infill Panels, Sill Pans, Column Covers and Handrail Top Caps. All welding and metal polishing is done in-house.

Our Aluminum Entrance Systems are not to be out done by our Heavy Glass Shower Department. We stock a full line of PRL Shower Hinges, Clamps, Channels and Handles in the most popular finishes. We supply many contemporary swinging and sought after architectural sliding door design systems. Shower enclosures can be supplied with coated glass, either applied after tempering or "Shower Glass" which has the sealer integrated into the glass during the manufacturing process. We can work from opening dimensions, calculating all clearances or fabricate from finished glass sizes provided.

The Architectural Glass and Aluminum products we supply are backed up by an office and production staff of highly qualified individuals with years of experience, ready to assist our clients with sales and technical support. As a private family owned company PRL places great value and emphasis on customer service and satisfaction. This work ethic is what has made PRL the successful company that we have become, in business for over 20 years.
