CURVED LAMINATED CHEMICALLY REINFORCED GLASS PANELS
Hard glass bow glass – curved laminated safety glass
In order to make curved glass, a glass sheet is placed in furnaces under a gradual heating process at high temperatures, ranging between 500 and 600 º C, after which it softens and adheres to a mold by gravity.
Thanks to the skilful use of high-tech ovens, Hard Glass is able to produce the most complex shapes of curved glass panels, ensuring maximum respect for projects, combining excellent optical and dimensional performance.
Maximum Bow Glass dimensions: 4500 x 2500 mm
BOW GLASS lends itself to many applications: special vehicles, marine, architecture, interiors design.
The bending process developed permits amazing aesthetic solutions for every glass product. HARD GLASS produces BOW GLASS in single panels, laminate, and toughened and heated versions.
LAMINATED CURVED GLASS combines all features of glass with considerable strength, thanks to the assembly of two or more glass sheets with layers of special plastic (also available in different colours).
LAMINATED/BULLET-PROOF CURVED GLASS is available in 2-3-4 or more sheets, and with the insertion of plastic materials such as polycarbonate. Bear in mind that the thickness must always be reasonably proportional to the panel’s size and requisites (accident-prevention, safety, bulletproof).
CHEMICALLY TEMPERED LAMINATED GLASS: Chemical tempering allows to realize almost any curved shape adding reinforcement to the glass sheets and making these glass panels suitable for all those applications where aesthetic and safety must be accompanied by an excellent mechanical strength.
INSULATING CURVED GLASS is produced by assembling two or more curved panels of even different type and thickness with a dry air chamber and then joining the panels together by using a special appropriately sealed spacer. In this way, curved insulating glass panels with exceptional thermal and sound insulation properties are created with all the BOW GLASS aesthetic features to make a product that is truly unique in its kind.
All the types indicated above are also available in reflecting, coloured, sandblasted versions.
