I think you have the name right. One LFS I worked for long ago sold the All-Glass brand, but I'm not sure where to find them now.

It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labelling.

I dont use the hinges. I just line up the two pieces and tape them off and run a bead of silicone and smooth it out with a putty knife to attach the two pieces. That is how most commercial ones are made. I do get a brand of silicone that says "flexible" on the label.
