Glass cut?

Post by collioure_bee » Sat 03 Jul 2010 14:52

A couple of friends have a patio table and the glass top is broken. Is there anywhere that anyone knows of where they can get replacement glass (toughened) for it? Preferably cut to size. Think it was originally bought in Leroy Merlin but not sure they do replacement glass.

Both Leroy and Casto sell cut glass, per your size. If your friend needs something more special, there's a mirror shop a bit higher than the Quartier St. Jacques. If he needs this, I can zero closer to where the store is shown. It will be more expensive than the Leroy/Casto choice.

The Brico near Intermarche at Le Boulou also cut glass to size and have strengthened glass.

Carrefour in Château Roussillon - Route de Canet. Go to Mr.Brico in the shopping mall and ask for M.Louis (or anyone else who cuts glass!) It's fairly cheapo.

I don't think you can just get a piece of glass cut, it needs to have the edges polished and then be toughened. There is a European standard for this
EN 12521.

I suggest you look in yellow pages for someone near you.

Wow, thanks all. I'll copy this and pass it on to them.
