Bent Tempered Glass
Curved Glass, Safety Glass, Structural Glazing
Through a manufacturing process of heating, curving, and rapidly cooling the glass, curved tempered glass is 4-5 times stronger than annealed glass and can be used in applications requiring safety glazing as well as structural glazing. Bent Heat-Strengthened glass is also available. Heat strengthened glass is 2 times as strong as annealed glass. While not a safety glazing product, it is used in applications where additional strength is required for load specifications or for applications and glass types that require resistance to thermal absorption.
State-of-the-art technology provides high quality optics with minimal distortion and strict radial tolerances.
Standard Bent Glass is a certified Guardian SunGuard Select Fabricator for high performance coated glass.
Bent tempered glass can be manufactured as a tempered/laminated product, as well as combined in an insulated unit for increased thermal and solar performance.
