Here at Clayton Glass, we supply glass units for residential windows, doors and roofs; for all sorts of applications from contemporary and modern, to classic and traditional.

We provide standard glass units, high-spec units, decorative glass units, composite door glass units, specialist units, toughened units, laminated units and more. And we do it all with the special Clayton blend of dedicated service, unique digital offering and industry-leading expertise…

Why Choose Clayton Glass Over Other Glass Manufacturers?

Our approach is what separates us from other glass manufacturers. Something we like to call “The Clayton Difference“.

Since being founded in 1956, Clayton Glass have grown steadily to become one of the largest glass manufacturers in the United Kingdom.

In that time, we have gained experience and knowledge in all areas of glass and glazing, making us best placed in the modern day to offer expertise, guidance and help to our large and loyal customer base.

A quote from Managing Director, Ryan Green, he says: My aim for Clayton Glass is to be more than just a supplier to you, we look to put you, the customer, at the heart of everything we do, over time I hope my team will gain your trust and loyalty, by offering a first class service and wider support to your business than simply supplying units on time.

The Clayton Difference is a two-fold ethos. Firstly, it is the benefit of dealing with a company with the scale and capabilities of one of the UK’s largest glass manufacturers. But secondly, and just as importantly, it is the friendly, personable approach of our teams all across our six sites, to provide dedicated and attentive service to each and every customer. Much like that of a smaller, family-run business.

We take our customer relationships very seriously, and will do as much as we can to ensure a long and fruitful partnership.

Meanwhile, we have a six-strong nationwide sales team providing support and in-depth technical advice.

All these things serve to make us one of the UK’s largest and most trusted glass manufacturers. You can get to know the Clayton Glass staff via our Meet the Team page. Or you can also head over to our Contact Page to find our how you can get in touch.

Not to mention, we also exclusively supply three of the UK’s most sought after fenestration brands. These are: high-performance roof products SMARTGLASS and Celsius Glass, as well as the sustainable window unit EcoMAX. Find out more about EcoMAX over on the EcoMAX website.

A quote from Commercial Director, Jason McCabe, reading: Clayton Glass customers have access to our bespoke and tailored product offering, featuring a range of glass types for all glazing applications. They will also receive exclusive access to our digital services, including GlassTrack; our industry-first glass-order-tracking software.

One of the main benefits of choosing Clayton Glass over other glass manufacturers, is the availability of our industry-first glass order tracking service GlassTrack.

To expand, GlassTrack is a platform exclusive to Clayton Glass customers. Where they can view all their order information, including delivery dates, stillage locations, lead times, unit sizes, order numbers and more. Whilst also allowing users to view detailed analytics data and submit remake requests. Clayton Glass customers can register for GlassTrack and use the service from our secure and reliable platform.

One of the UK’s most Distinguished Glass Manufacturers

Not only are we one of the UK’s largest and friendliest glass manufacturers, we also have a number of awards in the trophy cabinet. Since it’s inauguration, we have been awarded the prestigious “IGU Manufacturer of the Year” award by the national fenestration awards on five separate occasions. In 2015, 2016, 2019, 2020 and 2022. What makes this award so special is that it’s entirely voted for by people within the glass industry!

Ryan Green talks up awards for glass manufacturers! Quote: Although not our main focus, I am proud when our organisation gets put forward for awards. It's fantastic that our staff are recognised externally by the industry for their hard work and dedication. (Ryan Green, Managing Director)

We also have all the industry and government accreditations required by glass manufacturers for residential glazing applications.

It’s All About Partnership

Finally, we’d just like to emphasise that at Clayton Glass, more than other glass manufacturers, we are all about promoting a long-standing two-way, mutually beneficial partnership between our two companies.
