Central Glass and Glazing
is able to make curved glass for any kind of installation. Curved glass
(sometimes referred to as bent glass) is regular glass, which is made
to curve using a special process. It can be used for external sites
such as facades, shop fronts, panoramic lifts and is also commonly used
for internal sites in refrigerator cabinets, shower screens, etc.
Curved glass is produced in a horizontal mould, slowly heating the
glass to approximately 600ºC, at which point the glass softens
sufficiently and takes the shape of the mould. The glass is then slowly
cooled to avoid any internal stress. The mould itself plays a very
important role in bent glass manufacturing because it determines the
quality and angle of the curve.
