The ColorKote facility covers over 30,000 square feet of manufacturing space. With separate divisions in each section of our shop, we have streamlined our glass cutting, coating, and designing process to its own art. All of our glass fabrication is done in our facility, delivered straight to your home, business, or newest project.
There are dozens of types of glass. Some are used for their thickness and durability while others are used for their texture and design. ColorKote is excited to say that we can apply your color to the many different glass options, such as:
As a licensed applicator of GlassKote in the New England area and beyond, we took the vision of GlassKote and have continued to build on it with our own applications and design of glass.
As part of Manhattan Shade & Glass, a family-owned company, established in 1926, ColorKote CT, LLC is a decorative glass fabricator. Glass is our medium, and we have limitless applications. We believe that no designer, no homeowner, should be limited by the materials and colors that are available to them on a regular basis. We believe that ColorKote offers a level of design that is unique in its own rite.
In the late 1950s, a rudimentary color coating process for glass was developed in Australia. After exhaustive testing and much trial and error, the GlassKote process was born. In early 2005, the process was introduced to the United States market by GlassKote USA, LLC. Shortly thereafter, ColorKote CT became the first licensed applicator in North America.
GlassKote is a proprietary permanent color fixed coating applied to any type of glass. The process enables an applicator to achieve almost all of the colors in the spectrum. We can also create metallic and pearlescent finishes and apply graphics or digital images to glass. Once the coating has been applied and cured, it bonds to the glass surface at a molecular level.
