“Replacing book shelves with glass dividers is another enhancement,” says Chris Kaleta, MPD artist. “Removing things like old planter bookshelves from sixties era homes and replacing them with glass dividers is especially effective. It’s also functional, especially if it’s positioned next to an exterior door, the divider wall can block cold air from rushing in. It’s nice to have it there.” MPD Glass and Vinyl Graphics also provides sandblasting for some of the province’s largest door and window manufacturers, contractors, architectural fi rms and works closely with some of the best designers in the city. “We also provide our etching and decorative fi lms for front doors and interior doors. We supply and install full shower enclosures as well as glass staircase railings. MPD also does commercial jobs applying decorative glass fi lm to board rooms where the glass is already in place. It’s an elegant solution since it solves privacy issues and brings decorative elements to the office sett ing,” says Phil. The MPD website showcases some designs as well as gallery pictures of previous jobs the company has completed. Visit www.mpdglass.com
