One of the many reasons to choose Arrow Glass Industries for Commercial Glass

AGI has the Fastest Custom Glass in the Industry. At every level, from concept to install, Arrow Glass has the fastest completion time in the glass industry. Quotes will be returned within 24 hours and installs will be completed in 2-3 days. Avoid the 3-4 week delays! Arrow Glass Industries 2-3 day completions make AGI a clear choice for your next commercial project. 

This past month, Lucky Brand recieved a quote from a local glass company indicating a completion time of 4 weeks for 6 pieces of 1/2″ tempered glass. They went on a hunt to find a company who could get their 6 pieces of 1/2″  tempered glass done in less time. They were furious that they would be losing millions waiting 4 weeks to open.  Luckily, they called AGI Friday Afternoon. 

Measurements came in Saturday night. Sunday and Monday were spent optimizing and cutting the glass needed.  Tuesday was spent delivering and installing. That’s just how fast Arrow Glass is. 

Driving 15 hours (over 1,000 miles) to deliver glass in 3 days is unheard of in the glass industry.  In other words, Arrow Glass Industries re-affirmed our slogan with the Fastest Custom Glass in the industry… Period!

They cut my tile

AGI notch glass installers cut around the granite and tile

Carrara Italian marble tile, polished to perfection. This brought me the utmost joy walking into my newly remodeled bathroom. Sitting on my newly tiled bench oddly relaxed me and put me at ease. Now time for the glass to tie all the beauty all together. My home builder recommended his favorite glass installers, they were going to be giving me a quote that same day. 

My installer came. With muddy boots all over my newly polished tile he pointed saying “We are gonna have to cut right here, and here, and here to install the glass.” Wait. What? No way, I thought; you’re not touching my tiles! 

“Yeah, we have no way to make the glass form around the tile.” Not my new tile! I had just spent a fortune installing those little hexagons and subway tiles to perfection. He then smiled and gave me the quote price as I excorted him out. 

Yes. That horror story really happened.

But thankfully I went with Arrow Glass Industries…. Who did in fact, have a way to make their glass fit my beautiful carrara tiles. 

Within two days, I had completed my complete bathroom remodel. I am proud I went to Arrow Glass Industries, they delivered quality glass and exceptional service.

Voted Best Bathroom Mirror for 2019

Back-lit bathroom mirrors are one of the most popular mirror types for homeowners right now. Everyone wants a more modern and contemporary bathroom. It’s the common choice for those who want a sleek space while having the functionality of two important components of a bathroom: lighting and mirrors.

Why buy a backlit mirror?

Some people don’t like the idea of hanging lights directly over the mirror in their bathroom- it’s a necessity, but can be an eyesore. Above all, lights can take up valuable head space in a bathroom with low ceilings. 
The subtle lights from the mirrors outlines can make the mirror stand out and come off the wall, creating a layer of depth, but still enough to let people use it for makeup, hair-styling, and other essential activities inside the room. At the same time, the lights behind the mirror give it depth, which makes the bathroom become more interesting and beautiful. Because back-lit mirrors are often powered by LED lights rather than incandescent ones, they use much less energy and last longer than ordinary light bulbs would. 

Style

If you’re looking to add some style to your project, a back-lit mirror can be an easy way to do so. No one can deny that the aesthetic of this mirror screams sleek and modern. 

Functionality

Every bathroom needs light. Why should you have to have ugly bulbs sticking out of a plastic fixture? Back-lit mirrors provide all the light needed, adding functionality to any room requiring a mirror and a light.
Arrow’s LED lighting used in our back-lit mirrors are available with a dimmer switch. Switching between warm or cool color temperatures to complement any complexion. Our high quality mirror gives a pure, flawless, and widespread glow.
Arrow Glass Industries is committed to the quality improvement process. We strive to meet or exceed those expectations every time by providing quality material and unmatched service.

Blood Donation- Giving the Gift of Life

Blood donations do not keep pace with hospital demand during the summer months. Every day there are thousands of lives to help save. Therefore, Arrow Glass Industries invited eligible donors to roll up a sleeve during the 1st annual Arrow Company Blood donation drive Wednesday, Aug. 7th. 
This blood drive came as the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center faced an emergency need for blood donors to give blood and help avoid delays in lifesaving medical care for patients.
“Summer months are among the most challenging times of the year for collecting blood. Regular donors delay giving while they vacation and participate in seasonal activities. Yet, patients are always counting on the generosity of blood donors to keep replenishing the life-saving supply. Therefore, Thank you Arrow Glass Industries for partnering with us to help save and sustain lives!”
 Operations Coordinator of Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center
Starting at 8:00 am, the day took off quick. Gulf Coast Regionals donation van filled up, as there were so many eager employees wanting to donate. Within two hours we hit our projected goal of 15 donations. Arrow Glass Industries is very thankful for all of the 77 employees who chose to donate blood. Because of you over 100 lives were saved!

Keeping With the Trends

Today, residents put having a fitness center and workout classes at a premium– but it’s not just their own bodies they want to be healthy.

Back to School

Arrow Glass Industries is committed to an empowered, well trained workforce that is innovative and responsive .  We will continue to lead our industry in delivery times and creative processes and products through inauguration of our resources. This starts with AGIU.

The Challenge

Most employers don’t train young workers like they used to. In 1979, the average young worker received 2.5 weeks of training per year. By 1995, training time fell to just 11 hours. More recent data has been hard to find, by 2011 only a fifth of employees reported receiving on-the-job training from their employers over the past five years.

 

The Solution

In 2015, Arrow Glass Industries noticed this gap and decided to change the game. Kristina Falla, Onboarding and Retention Specialist created AGI University, (also known as AGI U). It’s a three week long training process including rigorous testing, skill building, and continued education for all new comers and current employees. Now AGI U has developed into one of Arrow’s the most valuable divisions, growing our retention rate to an astonishing  97%.

AGI is an industry leader known for it’s innovative practices. This continued education class sets us above all other competitors and gives you the piece of mind knowing your job will be completed by the industry best AGI employees.

What is Commercial Interior Design?

Commercial interior design plays a pivotal role in the success of any business… but what is it exactly?
Commercial interior designers conceptualize spaces for businesses. They seek to increase functionality and elevate style for financial gain. Whether it’s a luxury hotel developer or a small business owner, it is up to the commercial interior designer to translate the client’s vision in ways that are practical, profitable, and of course, chic. Because the scope of work is much larger than residential projects, commercial interior designers usually take on more responsibilities.
Arrow’s commercial interior designers are trained to prioritize functionality and safety without sacrificing style or aesthetics. For example, a luxury hotel needs to accommodate a certain amount of guests if it wants to maximize profits. But in order to do so, the hotel has to impress guests with spacious rooms, lavish bathrooms, and breathtaking views. It should wow guests with its lobby, and make room for high-endamenities.
It falls on the commercial interior designer to make all of these requirements come together into one usable and beautiful space…and they are more than qualified to do so!
Our commercial interior designers know how to space plan without surrendering design. They are also trained to ensure that everything within the physical structure is safe and up to code. They are heavily involved in the renovation and construction process, and work closely with contractors and manufacturers to make important structural decisions including architectural details, lighting, floor and ceiling design, window placement, and technological upgrades. Arrow’s commercial interior designers also define the project’s scope of work, draw schematics and blueprints, select the right materials, and oversee budgeting and scheduling, along with other important duties.

Barn Door Style

As a home builder, it is  imperative that you stay up-to-date with what is current and trending in the housing market.

Knowing what your customers want is the only way you will keep a  competitive edge on the competition. With that being said, frameless glass showers are all the rage but the glass barn door sliding shower door is what they call the “hotness”. A barn door slider offers a new take on your typical glass shower door options.  The barn style glass has exceptional versatility. It adds style and presence which can be scaled up to work in a large expansive bathroom setting or it can be scaled down to work just a well in a smaller bathroom where space is limited and a swinging door is not a viable option.

You can’t go wrong with a glass shower door of any type, because that is what customers want, but adding a barn door slider to your build, shows your  customers that you are a builder who is willing to go above and beyond the “typical” by giving them something exceptional.
