Toughened glass is made by heating annealed glass to approximately 700 degrees 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 a horizontal tempering furnace while bending the glass to specific shapes. It is one of the few curved toughening furnaces in Australia and it is the only one with a tight radius capabilities, it provides a wide range of applications in architectural, commercial and residential installations. The capabilities range from cylindrical single curves, to complex non cylindrical with tight radius curves and tangents.

Following is our curved toughening specifications. Please contact us regarding the viability of using bent glass in your next project.
