96 inch mistlite glass–need help finding some!
Posted: Tue May 19, 2009 3:05 pm
I am looking for some Mistlite tempered pattern glass, 27-3/16 x 96 inches.
My glass guy can't find it that big.
Paul's Glass in Long Beach can no longer get it that big.
if you have a source, let me know.

Eldon and Dell Primrose
The owners are former Eichler owners.

scratch the mistlite.
Actually, according to architectural specifications, Cliff May used Factrolite, which is like Mistlite. I found a source in BC that can supply 96 inch Factrolite. Now I just need to find a retailer to order it for me.
If anyone knows of a source stateside, let me know.

Will you share the project that you need it for eventually?

A neighbor down here in Long Beach told me that they got theirs at Hal's Glass. http://www.halsglass.com/
The mistlite I got from Paul's glass is an exact match for what we have in our house. So, mistlite or factrolite should work for you, whatever you can find first. Sorry to hear Paul's can't get it anymore. Good luck!

Ah, now i see. I only had my i-phone at work this past week, though
handy, it was difficult searching
A New Orleans style transom would work for air circulation but out of the
question for me if in similar situation. Unacceptable compromise.
What a beautiful design element.
