Curved glass is made by heating a flat sheet of glass in a controlled way. The glass bends under the influence of gravity and takes the shape of the mould placed underneath, it can be made of ordinary, tempered or laminated glass and can be bent in various ways according to the customer's needs. Curved glass is often used in roof glazing, light domes, verandas, shopping malls, to round the corners of glass walls, as a component of furniture, stairs, curved automatic doors, shower walls, facades and windows for office buildings and kitchen hoods.
The bending process ends when the glass is brought to room temperature according to a very precise cooling curve, thus avoiding the appearance of tensions in the molecular structure of the glass. All glazings of different thicknesses can be curved. We obtain curved laminated glass, multi laminated glass, armoured glass, insulating assemblies, curved tempered glass. Only reflective glazing with non-pyrolitic layers may not be curved.
Screen printing, drilling and several types of shaping are possible on curved glass. It is also used as glass for a wide range of applications, such as :
roof glazing, bright dome, verandas.
commercial galleries, to round the corners of glass walls, as a furniture component.
stairs, automatic curved doors.
walls and shower cubicle....
- furniture and kitchen hoods

- Screen printing:
Screen-printed glass is glass in which one side is covered with unalterable decorative motifs.
These are made by depositing enamel on the glass by means of a screen printing process. The enamel is then vitrified during a heat treatment at more than 600 °C, which gives the finished product a high chemical and mechanical stability.
You can print an image, a drawing, a lettering, or your logo.
Unlike transparent glass, frosted glass is translucent and therefore allows light to pass through but prevents a clear view of what is happening on the other side. Frosted glass has a satin surface.
It gently filters light, blurs contours and suggests silhouettes in a variety of interior and exterior applications. A permanent source of inspiration for designers, matt glass is totally in line with the current trend of minimalism, simplicity and refined shapes. frosted glass offers a perfect balance between intimacy and luminosity.
Sandblasted glass has a satin finish, particularly elegant and aesthetic. By exploiting all the possibilities offered by sandblasting, it is possible to obtain glasses in total or partial sandblasting, for subtle and sometimes surprising texture and light effects. Custom sandblasted glass will meet all needs, including the most specific or original ones. In all cases, the finished product, whether plain, printed or coloured, is resistant, easy to maintain, and spreads light pleasantly, to preserve privacy or confidentiality.
- Anti-limestone treatment:
The Anti-limestone treatment is generally a very clear tempered glass, treated with an invisible anti-limestone layer, ideal for the creation of your custom shower enclosure (Italian shower, bathtub screen and small projection protections). It guarantees a preserved transparency day after day, the glass is protected from corrosion, it does not tarnish and keeps its beauty. A glass that is easier to clean because the water slides on the surface of the glass, which limits limescale deposits after drying. Residual traces are easily cleaned.
This finishing consists of making holes in the glass. Its purpose is to allow glass to be combined with other elements. With this technology, it is possible, for example, to attach hinges to a glass door or to integrate a lock or any other element that suits your needs.
