Are You Afraid To Order A Glass Podium Because Of The Word “Glass” 0

Don’t be! 

I understand there is a common concern that glass pulpits and communion tables will break easily.

This is a misconception. With safety and durability in mind, we use only 3/8” architectural glass. Glass does not age, weaken or change appearance overtime, like acrylic, plexiglass or plastic does.

There are thousands of churches that have these glass pulpits and communion tables and incidents of breakage are very, very low.

Having said that we do need to acknowledge that proper care and common sense should be used around your glass pulpit or communion table. With that in mind, your glass items will last a lifetime.

If buying a quality pulpit or communion table and saving your congregation time and money in the long run is your goal, then a beautiful, contemporary glass piece is for you.  It will become the focal point of your sanctuary and service.

Another plus to buying a glass pulpit or communion table is you are making a “green” (environmentally friendly) choice.  Glass is made from natural and plentiful materials – sand and silica.

Glass can be recycled time and time again, into new glass without losing its integrity.

Should you at some point choose to dispose or replace your glass pulpit with another style, you will know that it will be recycled and not end up in a landfill.

The are many features and benefits to purchasing a glass pulpit or communion table.

  • Real Glass
  • Quality, Durability and Strength
  • Superb Craftsmanship
  • Made In North America
  • Oak Book Rest (On Pulpits Only) To Keep Books or Papers In Place
  • Oak Base With Recessed Casters, For Ease Of Movement
  • Three Standard Scriptures To Choose From (On Communion Tables Only)
  • Free Custom Etched Logo On Front Panel Of Pulpit
  • Choice Of 10 Wood Stains
  • Comes Fully Assembled, Ready To Use

Care and Maintenance Of Podiums, Pulpits, Lectern and Communion Tables 0

Have you ever thought about the care and maintenance of the podium, pulpit, lectern and communion table you purchase?

They require little care and maintenance, but should the need arise, we have provided you with valuable cleaning and maintenance instructions in this blog.

Every podium, pulpit, lectern and communion table are made of different materials and require separate care methods. Each routine is simple and easy to do.

ACRYLIC

Use a mix of mild soap and water, along with a clean cotton cloth.  Wipe the surface of the podium, etc. with the solution and dry.

NEVER use a glass cleaning product or a product that contains ammonia on your item.

Also, there is a product called “Novus”, that you can purchase on the internet.

GLASS

If your pulpit, etc. has an etched (white frosted look) logo, use a clean microfiber cloth with glass cleaner.  First spray glass cleaner directly on the soft cloth and gently wipe the surface of the glass panels.

If your pulpit, etc. has a logo with paint fill (color fill), avoid spraying cleaner directly onto the painted surface.  Clean by wiping with a dry microfiber cloth.

Glass pulpits with a photoplate, clean it by wiping with a dry microfiber cloth.

WOOD BASE OR TRIM ON GLASS PULPIT

With a dry soft flannel or microfiber cloth wipe the surface of the wood base or trim.  This should be sufficient for normal dusting.

Occasionally, you may spray Pledge, onto a soft flannel cloth to clean wood base or trim.

DO NOT use a glass cleaner like, Windex, on the wood base or trim, as it will eventually strip the finish from your pulpit’s wood finish.

WOOD

Dust them with a cloth that is damp with water only.  Be sure the cloth has been wrung out very thoroughly.

WOOD and ACRYLIC

The acrylic panel(s) of the podium, pulpit, lectern or communion table, should be cleaned with a mix of mild soap and water with a clean cotton cloth. Wipe the surface of the acrylic with the solution and dry.

The wood part(s) of the podium, pulpit, lectern or communion table, dust with a cloth that is damp with water.

Following these instructions of proper care and maintenance will ensure that your podium, pulpit, lectern and communion table will maintain its beautiful appearance for years to come.

Can You Send Stain Samples Of Pulpit, Podium, Lectern and Communion Table? 0

Yes, on our custom made to order products.

Are you in the market for a new pulpit, podium, lectern, communion table or other church furnishings and need them to match existing furniture or woodwork?

If the answer is; Yes, there are several things to consider.

First, you need to consider your budget for a new piece of church furniture.

Second, you must decide, which style and material will match or coordinate with your existing furnishings and/or woodwork.

Third, is a question that comes up quite often. Are the stain samples and fabric samples on your website true to the actual color? The answer is complicated, as all computers and monitors display or show colors differently, due to the resolution, etc. As a result, we can’t really answer that questions.

So, with that in mind, we suggest you call, and request stain and fabric color samples.

These are provided Free of charge and usually arrive to you within 2 –5 days after request. Just let us know the contact person, address, city, state and zip code to send them to.

Once received you can compare the samples to your existing furniture and/or woodwork and find which one is the closes or perfect match.

This will eliminate any surprises once your item is received.

As once an order is placed, custom made to order pieces cannot be cancelled or returned.

Remember it is better to be safe than sorry.

Thanks for your continued readership.
