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.
