Why Our Glass Is Different

Our focus is on quality, function, and durability. Thick Ass Glass aims to provide highly functional, durable glass that stands up to your day-to-day use. While no glass is indestructible, we do our best to make them resistant to breaking through thicker glass and attention to detail in problem areas. We also offer an optional warranty to cover your glass.

Quality + Durability

TAG is committed to durability, constantly seeking ways to improve the integrity of our glass. This means we do not cut corners. Some producers prioritize the cheapest production method over the best possible design outcome. There are many fine details in the design or engineering of TAG's products that make them more difficult to produce. This includes maintaining glass thicknesses in welds, tolerances on diffusers, and adhering to our design specifications even when it makes production more challenging.

Function

While durability may be our most sought-after trait, we are highly focused on functionality. With over a decade of experience producing glass, we have learned a great deal about function, whether it's a standard beaker, recycler, or dab rig. TAG glass offers high-end diffusers like our super slit pucks, UFOs, gridded inlines, and fixed tree percs. Our diffusers are designed with airflow in mind, while also considering the efficiency of each slit, aiming for an optimal airflow/efficiency ratio. Recyclers are a staple of glass functionality, requiring specific arrangements of parts to provide an ideal recycling function. They must not only look the part but also operate correctly in many small aspects to provide an ideal experience. You will find that every TAG product is highly functional, offering a slightly different or special feel compared to most glass.

So, Why Are We Different?

Committed to the pursuit of perfection. During recent times, many have resorted to producing thinner, smaller, lower-quality glass in higher quantities. We too had the option of changing our production style to reduce costs, but we refuse to do this as each cost reduction results in a noticeable decline in product durability/function. Because of this, you can feel the difference in your hand when you pick one up; they are heavy! Even small TAG pieces are still quite heavy and solid.

We use custom super-thick joints, especially on our heavy wall beakers. We could save weight and production costs by producing a thinner joint (or thinner beaker), but this would lead to weaker products that survive fewer impacts. We also produce diffusers with a high slit density (called Super Slit). These are difficult and time-consuming to produce compared to regular slit counts. Without the high density in slits, the function can be heavily degraded in designs. There are many corners that could be cut in the production of glass, but we prefer to choose the best possible design outcome over the easiest production method.

Made To Order (MTO)

In early 2021, we began a soft launch of a new service known as "Made To Order" or more commonly referred to as MTOs. Made To Order allows you to request any variant you would like from practically any item listed on the Thick Ass Glass website.

Production glass brands similar to ours historically cannot offer a custom order format due to the requirement of high production quantities per specific variant to achieve a reasonable price and then offer to the masses. For years, customers have been inquiring about specific out-of-stock models or requesting specific logos and color options that have not been previously offered. Until recently, most of these requests could not be fulfilled, but the MTO service now provides the option to obtain basically any piece in any variant! Navigate here to learn more.

We try our best to continually improve each product; we value our customers' input as it helps us achieve this! We welcome new ideas and would love to hear from you!
