McIntosh glass front panels are comprised of either 1/8" or 1/2" thick glass. We cut all the glass on a CNC laser jet for precision cuts, and use garnet dust to diminish friction and protect your investment for generations of enjoyment.

McIntosh glass front panels are silkscreened with multiple layers of ink to deliver a beautiful finish. The ink is screened on the back side of the glass so the labeling never wears off even after decades of use. Each piece is carefully examined for quality by our dedicated McIntosh experts.
