CURVED GlASS

DETAILS

Bent glass is increasingly used in both interior and exterior applications allowing architects and designers to free their imagination and customize each project by making it unique.

It is used in building facades, stained glass windows, interior design (furniture, counters, screens, interior divisions, etc.), commercial buildings, railings, panoramic elevators, stairs, revolving doors, ceilings, etc.

Bent glass can be supplied in monolithic, annealed, thermally toughened or tempered glass, in laminated glass (we recommend laminating glass of the same thickness such as 6+6, we can laminate with colorless butyral, acoustic, sentry glass, etc.), in double glazing, with selective layer glass, solar control or low emission glass, etc.

Most of the manufacturing processes that can be carried out on flat glass can be applied to bent glass (edging of the glass edges, silk-screen printing, drilling, all-glass sealing for assembly on insulating glass, etc.).

Gravity bending:

Gravity-bent glass is obtained by slowly heating flat glass to its point of plasticity and once the glass has been softened, under its own weight, it will adapt to the desired shape by using custom-made molds.

Bending by means of a tempering furnace:

Tempered bent glass is manufactured in a bending furnace by means of convection heating and rapid cooling. Like any tempered glass, this thermal process increases its mechanical resistance to bending, compression and impact(more or less 4 or 5 times more resistant than annealed glass) without altering the spectrophotometric properties of the base product and is considered as a safety glass since, in case of breakage, the small glass fragments would be harmless. It could be thermally hardened instead of tempered in the bending furnace with slower cooling (for glass thicknesses of 5to 10 mm) and the HST (Heat Soak Test) process could also be added to the tempered glass if the project requires it.

Our latest-generation bending furnace allows us to manufacture tempered and heat-strengthened bent glass with selective, solar-control and low-emission coatings, etc. Offering high performance in TL, Solar Factor, and thermal(K value of 1.0 W/m2-K in double glazing and 0.6 W/m2-K in triple glazing).

Specialty laminates:

We specialize in specialty laminates, offering a wide variety of laminated curved glass options, from multilaminate, sentry glass laminates, to pool laminates.
