Curved Toughened Glass
Toughened glass is made by heating annealed glass to approximately 700° Celsius then cooling the outer surfaces rapidly. This process makes the glass very strong and shock resistant thus more durable.
Bent & Curved Glass uses this toughening technique though two different horizontal tempering furnaces. Producing tight radius and tangent radius curved glass panels, up to larger size architectural panels in a full range of glass types. Having both furnaces allows us to provide curved glass solutions for a wide range of applications in architectural, commercial and residential installations.
Following is our curved toughening specifications. Please contact us regarding the viability of using bent glass in your next project.
|Glass Thickness||Furnace 1 Min Radius||Furnace 2 Min Radius|
|15mm||On Application||On Application|
|Max Size||2500H x 1500G||3300H x 2500G|
|Min Size||150H x 400G||400H x 600G|
|Max Angle||90 deg||N/A|
|Max depth of curve||250mm||680mm|
|The viability of a piece will depend on the combination of glass thickness, radius, length and depth of curve.|
|Overall measurement||+/-2mm over 1m|
|Twisting||+/-3mm over 1m|
|Edge flatness||+/-2mm over 1m|
|Deviation of curve||+/-2mm|
