We love the fact that with GAP, there are no standard sizes, no standard hardware and no standard glass. We can design anything you want, and Graham can make it happen, unencumbered by limitations.
Sentech Architectural Systems – Structural Glass Walls and Systems
Sentech Architectural Systems and AR Design share a passion for excellence in design and a real conviction that involvement in the initial project development phase ensures solutions that meet our clients’ visions.

American Metalcraft - engineered metal products
AMI fabricates plate panel systems from either aluminum or stainless steel. The panels are solid metal and are designed to meet your specific need. We also mix materials to help you make the best use of your project budget.

By combining decades of experience with state-of-the-art equipment, Thompson I.G. (TIG) meets the most demanding expectations of strength, energy efficiency and aesthetic quality. We deliver results for commercial and residential architectural projects, recreational vehicles, mass transit and commercial vehicle industries.
