History Of Trinity Glass

Brent Yates founded Trinity Stained Glass Studio in 1989. They began in a large workshop in Radcliffe Road in Belfast. When the land had been sold off for the what is now Northwood Supa Centa, he needed to find a new premise. In 1996 he moved into the city and began trading from the current site on the corner of Fitzgerald and Armagh Street. 

Brent had completed his apprenticeship in Stained Glass under Graham Stewart Ltd, Christchurch in 1987. Kay Nelson became a part of the business in 2005 and has been duly trained under Brent Yates.

In 2007 they decided to purchase Kemps Glass. Prior to this time, they had to rely on other glaziers to install their windows and go out and do repairs. Purchasing Kemps Glass gave them the ability to be able to complete the entire job and also repair non-leadlight windows at the same time. Kemps Glass had an already established leadlighting side to it which was a perfect fit for both businesses.

In 2009 they decided to buy Winstone Glass which then gave them the space to bring in their own double glazing line. This has enabled Trinity Glass to have total control over the double glazing of all their leadlights. It has meant the can keep the price down and the quality up.

The earthquakes in 2011 had a major impact on Trinity Glass. They lost 60% of their stock and were cut off to the general public were located in the red zone for over a month. After having restocked over a dozen times since the initial earthquakes they are back to pre-earthquakes levels of coloured glass.

Brent and Kay are committed to staying in the centre of the city to make it easier for people from all suburbs to access them. There is a customer car park via Armagh Street, look for the Kemps Glass sign.
