& Stream Showers
Radiant Glass Concepts® was founded in 1991 by the current owner/director, Michiel Thoolen. Initially we were primarily a skylight company and after a few years, Radiant Skylights® was considered as a Radiant Glass Concepts® was founded in 1991 by the current owner/director, Michiel Thoolen. Initially we were primarily a skylight company and after a few years, Radiant Skylights® was considered as a leader in the skylight industry.
A few years later we decided to add other products to our range and after consultation with various regular clients, all of them indicated that there was a gap in the shower market, which was at that time only starting with frameless shower installations and was dominated by two or three companies. We started Radiant® Showers and after a successful launch of our own Regal Frameless and Supreme Framed showers, we quickly emerged as one of the more reputable shower companies in the shower industry. We managed to use our existing skylight client base and add their shower requirements to our scope of work.
We now had two successful brands in the building industry and after a few years decided to further expand our product range. There was an emerging trend towards frameless sliding stacking and frameless sliding folding doors and we set about designing our own system to accommodate this growing segment of the market. We subsequently launched Majestic frameless sliding folding doors. This is a unique system and is certified weatherproof. We quickly captured a large share of the market and have never looked back.
The benefit to our clients is that we can offer a wide range of products from skylights, to showers, to frameless sliding folding doors and other frameless or custom glass installations, such as traversable glass floors and other items. This helps the client as they are dealing with one company for all these items as opposed to various individual contractors, resulting in more site meetings and time constraints.
We currently employ 25 people, many of whom have more than 10 years with the company. In fact some of our original staff members have been with us from the beginning. Our company policy is to uplift our staff and we encourage them to aspire for higher positions within the company. We are proud of our very low staff turn-over, which we believe indicates that our staff are happy to work at our company.
We have over the years accumulated all necessary plant and equipment required to manufacture our products, including all patented dies and extrusions. We own our premises in Kya Sands, Randburg, which is an industrial area just North of Johannesburg. Our current fleet of vehicles totals 10 light delivery vehicles.
We work mainly in the Gauteng area, but we are happy to work further from our operational base, if the size of the contract warrants the travel and time to undertake long range projects of this nature. We are registered exporters and have to date successfully completed various contracts in Mozambique, Zambia, Seychelles, Lesotho and Botswana.
