Processing


As well as cutting glass or mirror to size we also specialise in various type of processing. Below are some of the things available.



Edge-Work Smoothing/Polishing

For a plain minimal look mirror the sharp edge can be just removed, or fully polished. Having just the sharp edge removed is usually the most cost effective type of processing and can be done on 3mm, 4mm or 6mm thickness glass or mirrors. It is still safe and fairly neat, however if the edge is in a clearly visible location and you like the shiny polished look then we can fully polish the edges of 4mm or thicker glass or mirror. It only costs a little more and takes a little longer, but it give a highly finished look.



Bevelling

A bevel is a decorative chamfer that is usually 10mm or more. We can now get a 6mm to 25mm bevel done on 4mm thickness glass or mirror, or a 10mm - 35mm bevel on 6mm and thicker glass. It takes longer to do and costs more than polishing, but can look really good in the right location.



Sand-Blasting

From basic sand-blasted glass or mirror to decorative designs, many great things can be produced with a sandblasting.



Glass Painting

Made to size from the standard RAL colour range or standard BS4800 range.



CNC Shape Processing

Complex shapes can be made from glass providing there is a hardboard or plywood template to work from.



Glass Toughening

Most types of glass from 4mm thickness and above can be toughened. This is a process where the glass is heated and rapidly cooled in a furnace to strengthen the glass and to ensure is safer if broken.
