GLASS

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.
