Ion Glass is the leading provider of bespoke structural glass for ecclesiastical, heritage, and conservation projects, achieving contemporary functionality with minimal physical or visual impact to the original architecture. Using glass to renovate an older building retains the flow of light, especially from stained glass windows, whilst at the same time creating new spaces, minimising heat loss or avoiding draughts.

The scope of Ion’s work ranges from beautiful glass doors and draught proof entrance lobbies, to structural glass screens, partitions, visually unobtrusive meeting rooms and frameless glass balustrades, including the construction of structural glass linkways to provide an interface between heritage buildings and new extensions.  They have also created bespoke glass structures to preserve and display ancient or valuable artefacts.

With unrivalled experience in architecturally sensitive buildings, Ion provides design and technical expertise, ensuring every project meets structural and conservation requirements.  Their comprehensive service includes bespoke fixtures and fittings and managing the relevant installation logistics.  Accurate, computer-aided measuring systems ensure the glass fits flawlessly against ancient stonework, woodwork and corbels. 

Ion have worked on high profile and award winning projects, including Tate Britain, Canterbury Cathedral, St David’s Cathedral,  RICS award-winner St Mary’s at the Quay in Ipswich,  EASA winner St Anne’s Church in Soho and Rathfinney Wine Estate, which won a Sussex Heritage Trust Award. 

And we’ve transformed village churches with glass custom-fitted into arches, automatic glass doors and secure entrance porches.
