We Speak Your Language!

What differentiates us in the industry is the range of responsive solutions we offer for architectural glazing features and challenges, we simply don’t accept things that don’t work! We will listen to your ideas and supply the right solution for your project.

Our services and hardware cover the full spectrum of customization, from minor modifications to designing a completely custom part to reflect the architectural expression of the overall design, in a cost-effective way.

Glass Hardware has to do the job, but its other function is to look good! While our products are designed and tested for strength and safety, we’re passionate about aesthetic features such as sculpted lines, rounded edges and clean connection points.

A Green Approach 

Our parts are 75% post-consumer material, and we support LEED certification by helping you incorporate energy-efficient glazing systems in the form of double or triple glazing and sunshades into projects with sustainable initiatives.

Custom Solutions

The Right Products For The Right Application!

Custom can mean a lot of things, and often the term is reserved for high-end one-off projects, But at Stella, we find that custom is often the answer to a lot of practical problems. Working with designers to create new parts from scratch is what lights us up and inspires the work we do.

We believe that hardware is not static and should evolve to meet project requirements. Creating hardware that fits perfectly with glass thickness, varying sub-structures, and specific dimensions is what we do. Whether that involves a major re-design or a small tweak, we ensure our product fits seamlessly into your system.

Custom Means Finding Creative Ways to Lower Costs.

Custom design can lower glass structural costs by creating parts that can accommodate and compensate for glass thickness or the need for additional steel structure support – you save money on glass and steel, the most expensive elements in any project.
