15 x 18 H Round Glass Dome
This is a round glass dome that is actually an acrylic dome.
Round glass domes come in a variety of sizes. We stock round glass domes starting at 1 7/8”, 3”, 4”, 4 ½”,5 ½”, 8”, 10”, 12” and 15”. We also have sizes in between in some cases to fit special applications.
We have the ability to cut any new glass dome to your height specification for a nominal charge. If you don’t see your exact height needed contact us and we will try to help.
We generally ship by USPS.com as opposed to UPS or FedEX. UPS and FedEX use more conveyor belts for sorting packages and glass does not like to be dropped from conveyor belt to conveyor belt. We have been packing and shipping for over 25 years and have better than 95% safety record. We guarantee to get the order to you in one piece.
Most new round glass domes have a bead on the bottom. The bead gives greater strength to the glass. This bead is created by holding the glass dome at the top and rotating it while applying a gas flame near the point of its height. The glass melts at that point with the bottom dropping off and leaving a bead to seal the work. Oval glass domes do not have this bead generally since the flame can not be held in place as the dome rotates.
Many of our customers have the feeling that older glass domes will have more bubbles. This is generally not the case. It is the desire of all glass blowers to not have bubbles in the glass.
