There are a number of processes that take place to move glass from raw material to finished product.
In the world of interior design, what CAN’T WE do for you?
Sandblasting, lithography, surface treatments, quenching and rolling.
Everything else we can.
First, flat glass sheets are cut into smaller pieces using cutting tables.
After the glass is cut, a sharp, unfinished edge remains. From there, the glass moves on to the next stage of the process where the sharp edges are crimped, ground and polished.
There are also different types of glass making that takes place. These are holes, notches and countersinks. These are often used as anchor points for handles, hinges and other hardware.
There are also options for decorative treatments such as engraving, digital printing and painting.
Another topic of discussion is safety glass. It can be produced in three different ways: with tempered monolithic glass sheets for the non-structural parts; use non-tempered laminated glass for semi-structural parts; by combining individual layers of tempered glass to create a sandwich of laminated glass, with a more sophisticated procedure.
Glass cannot be treated after being tempered. It must be shaped beforehand using a cutting table or abrasive water jet technology.
