Gillinder specializes in pressed and custom molded, clear and colored glass products “Made in the USA” from both open (Gillinder-owned) and private (customer-owned) molds. Gillinder is a world leader in the manufacture of optical filter glass. Current products include PAR lenses, convex covers, Fresnel lenses, vapor tight and explosion-resistant globes, domes, cylinders, industrial globes, sight lenses, NVIS-compatible filters and contoured covers. Custom shapes can also be engineered and produced. Established in 1861 Trusted Source for Glass Development Projects 50% Marketshare of Airfield Lighting Glass in the USA Open Mold Catalog In addition to producing as much as 50% of the glass components for airfield runway lights for the US market, Gillinder provides products for lighting and other applications for many industry segments (both domestic and international) including aerospace and defense, architectural, commercial, industrial, landscape, theatrical, and transportation. Our chemists and engineers work with customers to assist in the design and development of custom glass products. Using multiple day tanks and pots, as opposed to continuous flow manufacturing techniques, Gillinder is able to produce multiple product shapes of different colors each day to meet each customer’s specific requirements. But, perhaps even more importantly, it allows us to serve a customer’s needs throughout their products' life cycle from limited introductory quantities, to full maturity production runs, and then heritage volumes. Gillinder is proud of its rich heritage as a US glass manufacturer and its long standing (in some cases decades old) relationships with its customers. We look forward to continuing and building upon our reputation as a world leading manufacturer of technical molded glass products. If you are already a customer, thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you again. If you are not yet a customer, please contact us today so we may begin to provide the solution to your glass needs.

  • The History of Gillinder Glass- Two Centuries in the Making

    The year 2023 marks two centuries since the birth of Gillinder Glass’ founder, William Thynne Gillinder. The new year also marks Gillinder’s hundredth year of being incorporated under the name Gillinder Brothers Inc.. In honor of these anniversaries, Gillinder has dug through its physical and digital archives to present the story of Gillinder's first one hundred years. Gillinder History: The First Century is a look of William Gillinder’s journey and the early days of Gillinder Glass. The story explains, Gillinder Glass’ inception was in 1861 when “William Gillinder would purchase the Samuel’s Bottle Factory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and create Philadelphia Flint Glass Works, which would begin the over 160-year history of Gillinder Glass.” Collectors and historians have found many trade names for Gillinder, which have included: William T. Gillinder Glass Factory, Franklin Flint Glass Works, Gillinder & Bennett, Gillinder & Sons, and Gillinder Brothers. Gillinder Brothers was established in 1912 and incorporated in 1923 and has primarily operated out of Port Jervis, New York ever since. Dozens of recently digitized photos can be found on the Photo Gallery Page. View full story HERE.

  • Vapor Proof Globes

    Gillinder Glass produces a broad variety of glass products manufactured to the most rigid specifications to meet the tough demands of industrial work environment and harsh and hazardous conditions. Depending on the use, hazardous conditions may require glass to be abrasion resistant, thermal shock resistant, liquid resistant, impact resistant, vapor or dust resistant, or explosion resistance to avoid shattering from an internal explosion, particularly important in environments with combustible fumes. Vapor proof glass resists the influx of vapors and gas particles and is generally also liquid resistant. Gillinder Glass is a key supplier in the harsh and hazardous industries with products intended for environments needing vapor tight globes and fixtures with a corrosion and vapor proof aluminum cage. There are several types of vapor proof and waterproof ratings, including IP65, IP66, and IP67, which measure a products water resistance. An IP rating is composed of two numbers. The first number describing the products intrusion protection, or how much it withstands particles entering, which is based on a 0-6 scale. The second number measures the resistance to liquid on a 0-9 scale. These vapor proof globes also offer intrusion protection which is calculated using a system to rate safeguard against dust, particles, or solid objects of certain sizes. These are to ensure any ingress will not damage or impede the performance of internal components with full protection against dust and other particulates, including a vacuum seal, tested against continuous airflow. Gillinder Glass’ clear or colored tempered vapor proof glass is often used for ceiling, pendant, or wall mounted fixtures. A tempered soda-lime glass is generally used and can be produced with multiple finishes in a variety of colors. These “jelly jar” globes are also offered on and include the following open stock options: Gillinder can also manufacture custom sizes, colors, and finishes, such as white enamel (inside), sandblasting, plastic coating, smooth, and inside ribs. Common colors include: amber, aviation blue, opolo, red C, rs green, and traffic green. The chromaticity specifications, measured with CIE A, are as follows: Gillinder’s in-house engineering team precisely test vapor proof glass to confirm chromaticity requirements as well as performing impact and thermal shock resistance tests when needed. As these globes are often used for harsh outdoor locations waterproof requirements also may apply. --- Press Contact: Jackie Conklin- Marketing Specialist: For other inquiries, please call us at 845-856-5375 or email References: “The Comprehensive Guide to IP Ratings.” The Comprehensive Guide To IP Ratings | RS Components,
