Cutting, CNC Glass Machining, Fabrication & Edgework

Cutting

The first step in producing any glass order is getting the glass cut. Solar Seal uses modern automated cutting equipment that saves both labor and materials. Our glass inventory which contains sheets as large as 204″ x 130″ can be cut into practically any shape by using one of our 62 standard shapes. Should your needs not fit any of those shapes, you may supply us with a DXF file or a rigid full size template which can then be digitized and cut automatically to your exact specifications.

When ordering from Solar Seal, we request that you specify your dimensions as base x height as viewed from the exterior. This allows us to place coated glass on the correct surface and to cut shapes correctly.

Our fabrication abilities don’t stop there however. Solar Seal also offers additional processing capabilities like sandblasting and ClearShield® technology. Any of these can be added to your next frameless enclosure or commercial entrance to give it a unique look or easy clean capability.

In addition to providing shop drawings and glass, Solar Seal is a master distributor for C.R. Laurence. We stock hardware in a variety of finishes and models as well as the necessary supplies in order to complete the installation. Whether you are looking for a dozen panic handles or a length of bulb seal, we can get it to you quickly. Other hardware manufacturer’s supplies are of course also available. When your glass is ready, everything else you need is sent in one complete package.

CNC Glass Machining/Fabrication

Solar Seal uses state of the art CNC (computerized numerical controlled) equipment to fabricate glass to exacting specifications. We are able to drill holes, notch cutouts, and polish a piece of glass all on one machine without touching the glass or the machine for tool changes. This gives us the ability to fabricate your glass into almost any shape with excellent precision.

To complete its fabrication line, Solar Seal offers an endless array of holes, cutouts, notches (all of which can be polished), as well as countersinks, fingerpulls, and a variety of edge types. We can complete your orders from sketches, rigid templates, or DXF files in a short amount of time. Solar Seal also offers all of the hardware necessary to install your glass projects.

Solar Seal’s glass fabrication department uses some of the most sophisticated processing equipment available today. This insures that you are satisfied when your glass is received. Your miters will fit together and the hardware will be snug.

Edgework

Annealed glass is supplied with clean cut edges and tempered glass is supplied with a seamed edge. Seaming removes the sharp edge to reduce the likelihood of breakage during the heat treating process and aids in handling purposes.

Solar Seal can also provide your glass with a finer edge. Flat ground edges can be supplied for purposes such as butt glazing. The ground edges may contain linear and random abrasion marks.

Flat polished edges may be used when the edge will be viewed after the final installation of the glass. The high polish is great for furniture glass, shower doors, commercial entrances, or any other type of finished glass product with exposed edges.

If multiple pieces of glass need to fit together to form a complex shape, a mitered edge may be required. Solar Seal can provide both ground and polished miters at any angle from 0-45 degrees. This is ideal for shower door and side panel installations.

More decorative edges may be available for your applications including double and triple waterfall edges, bullnose edges, bevels, pencil polish, O.G., and scalloped edges. Please contact your salesperson for more specific information and availability.
