    Hi Guys

    I read a thread from 2011 on the best places to buy glass in Durban. Has anything changed? Where is the best/cheapest place currently to buy glass in Durban? I am also looking for a custom made cabinet. Does anybody know anyone who can do this for me?

    Thanks

    Glass Edge in Springfield Park was the cheapest I could source. This was late last year. I was quoted about 1k per m2 from another supplier I used previously. I paid 2k for a full sheet of 10mm here. And the bonus was I even managed to do my sump with 10mm from the same sheet.

    They do not ariss (remove the sharp edges) the edges so they will give you raw cut glass which can be dangerous if not handled properly. I had to sand down the edges when I got home.

    I would recommend you get it polished if you taking from them which is about 50 a linear meter, which I regret not doing. They also do a opti white low iron glass which we refer to as starfire.
