We supply curved glass products for an endless variety of applications. One of our specialist processes is curving glass. Glass curves come in 3 main types, annealed, toughened and laminated, although toughened curves can be laminated together, and any combination of curves can be sealed into double glazed units.
Annealed bends are manufactured from raw material flat glass, either float, patterned, wired, tinted and even self-cleaning glass.
The actual curve is produced by applying heat to the flat glass which softens and adopts the shape of a mould which has been produced from template or a CAD drawing. Holes, cut outs and notches are also available, subject to approval.
Annealed bends can be used in single glazed or double glazed applications where safety is not an issue. An example of this would be upper floor window glazing, clock faces or picture frames.
Annealed bends can also be laminated together to produce laminated safety glass bends.
