Annealed glass bending is achieved by applying heat to flat glass. This softens the sheet and allows us to shape it in a mould produced from a template, or created from a Specialist Glass custom CAD drawing.
The curved glass we supply is manufactured in-house, from raw material flat glass – either float, patterned, Pilkington K Glass, wired, tinted, and even self-cleaning Pilkington Activ glass. Annealed curved glass can also be laminated together to produce laminated safety glass bends.
Annealed bends can be used in single or double glazed glass applications where safety is not a priority. An example of this would be upper floor window glazing, clock faces or picture frames.
