Service of custom designed bending of glass

baner giete nowy

We specialize in bending of cylindrical, spherical and parabolic float glass.
We're providing laminated, tempered and bent architectural glass panels according to custom requirements.
We'are able to bend different types of glass - colored, sandblasted, with various thicknesses.
We also bend the elements of artistic glass we create.

 

Bespoke shapes!

It can be a complex curve with flat tangents or a straight forward cylindrical curve. We can also cut a glass sheet to its desired shape after it has been bent.

Quick Service

Glass bending orders are executed immediately. Usually it takes less than a week. We are using disposable ceramic molds - made in place within 2 hours. It's much quicker than steel mold technique.

Flexibility

You can order a larger amount of bent glass sheets or just a single piece.

Technical Parameters

Maximum dimension of glass sheet is 2900mm x 1400mm (9,5ft x 4,5ft)
Any glass thickness
Deflection till 400mm
Practicable bending angle is <180°. For greater angle we suggest to divide glass panel into two (or more) parts.
The best effect (perfectly smooth surface) is obtained with 120°bending angle - one third of a circle.
There is a possibility of bending glass at a right angle but it'll always have a rounded corner (15cm radius)

Bent Glass Types

We can bend any type of glass unless it doesn't have any mineral admixtures: window glass, reliefed glass, sandblasted and satinated glass, antisol and art glass
We can bend a K-glass
We don't bend varnished glass (Lacobel, Lacomat) nor laminated (glass can be laminated only after bending).
We don't bend fireplace glass and tempered glass.

Other Services

We can do shallow spherical bending but for limited parameters only.

We offer tempering service for curved glass. The requirements for tempering:

  • circular arc - the curvature must be a segment of a circular (not eliptical) arc and without flat sections
  • the radius of the arc must be above 1.1 meters / 39 inches

Glass processing (thermal bending and tempering) is fully automated in one step. It is not possible to toughen the previously bent glass. Laminated, coated or varnished glass (lakomat) is not suitable for bending and hardening.

Bending of tempered glass is possible only for circular arcs with radius > 1 meter.

Technical parameters of tempered glass:
The maximum dimension of the bending sheet: 2440 × 2500 mm
The minimum dimension of the bending sheet: 500 × 600 mm
Glass thickness: up to 10 mm
Arch of bent glass: not larger than 1/4 circle
Bending radius: from 1000 mm
Deflection arrow: resultant

We offer production of double glazing with curved glass with possibility of choice of the finishing (colour of the seals). Our insulated panels are not filled with gas. We use spacers filled with desiccant and silicon for the edge sealing.
