HMI Essentials & Installation Kits

Lisa Separator

Curated glass installation tools. Brilliantly designed and engineered with our trademark attention to quality and detail.

Picture this.

You’ve hauled multiple panels of glass up a flight of stairs, around some tight corners and into your client’s bathroom. You and your team are sweating from the exertion and the adrenaline of making sure nothing goes wrong.

As a professional glazier, you’ve seen your share of glass compromised, walls banged up and just about everything else that can go wrong in this trade. But everything seems to be smooth on this job.

Wait. No drill bits? You’re joking.
You’re out of silicone, too? Ugh.
Your smooth install just took a turn.

Introducing HMI Essentials - Tools for the Glass Trade. A curated collection of the things you need to get the job done right (and smoothly!) the first time.

Quotation Mark

There are items that every glazier uses on EVERY install, and our line up has the right ones. You have to drill holes to install a shower, silicone is used on every job… adding these to your order keeps your team moving in the field. Time = money.”

But wait, there’s more. We’ve also singled out the true MUST HAVES and bundled these items at up to 35% off list price when ordered at the same time as your complete glass unit. Our 4 distinct Installation Kits are those items that you’ll wish you hadn't left behind.

.188 Porcelain Spear Tip Drill Bits (2 units) plus a tube of HMI X.3® Silicone

Make your kits ‘Deluxe” by adding a can of HMI Professional Grade Glass Cleaner. (A great leave behind “gift” after use for your customer.)
