our story

Our experience, expertise and people

Founded in Cambridge in 1987, we set out to change the way people look and feel about glass.

For our team, we look at our glass applications as the window to your dreams, as the spaces where you will work or entertain your family and friends, where your children will play games on warm summer nights, where you take a leap into your pool after a long day at work.

We’re transforming how you’ll see glass - from being just a functional product to something that adds value and enjoyment to your home and your lives.

It’s the places in which memories are made, and our passion lies in creating and designing distinct glass solutions that transform your space into something that is truly bespoke and beautiful, and that you will enjoy for years to come.

Opal, the name derived from the Greek derivative ‘Opallios’ meaning to “see a change of colour”.

It conveys the vibrant philosophy of our glass design, manufacturing and installation. Ever changing with innovation.

We are no ordinary glass supplier. We’re leading the way with our innovative glass options and have built our business around the knowledge that natural light creates a healthier, happier and more connected home or working space. You'll see our passion runs through everything we do, so that you can truly love the changing colours of the season and the world in which you live.

Our mission and values are clear

This is some text inside of a div block.

Whether you have a window that needs to be installed, or looking at building your dream luxury bathroom space, Opal Glass will come to you with a wealth of ideas, knowledge, and assistance to turn your visions into reality.

Our passion is glass. That's right, we love glass. As architectural glass specialists, our experienced team streamlines everything from the initial consultation and quote, through to supply and installing the finished product.

Our mission is to change the perception of glass. We jump at the opportunity to transform ordinary and unsightly glass options into spaces that your family will enjoy for years to come.
