SCHOTT RESTOVER® - restoration glass for the early 1900s

At a Glance

Historical in form, innovative in function

SCHOTT RESTOVER®
resembles the window glass manufactured at the turn of the century. Its minimal thickness makes it easy to install in historical window frames and fittings. While the surface of RESTOVER® light glass is slightly less irregular, RESTOVER® plus glass has a much more irregular surface structure and resembles mouth-blown glass.

Technical Information

RESTOVER® is produced through the Fourcault process, the first fully mechanised process for the continual manufacture of sheet glass with its first industrial plants in 1914.

In this process, molten glass is drawn through the Fourcault nozzle that produces the distinctive appearance of machine-drawn glass with a certain thickness tolerance and wavy surface.
