Curved Glass is a specialist field and requires experience and a high quality to attention. Our curved glass can be made to precise requirements and specifications to produce the most beautiful and complex of shapes without compromising optical quality.
Curved glass is made by gradually heating flat glass to above its softening point and letting it mould itself, by gravity, to a concave or convex mould. Once the shaping process is finished, the curved glazing is cooled at a controlled rate to produce a finished product free of internal stress. Curved glass is made using a special manufacturing technique right here in Ireland giving you a high quality finish and the peace of mind when also toughened. Our glass is made to order so we can supply it in small and large areas and have the option to custom order specific curved glass size and thickness throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Curved glass is available from in three forms:
- Annealed curved glass – The curve can be manufactured by applying heat to the glass which softens and adopts the shape of the mould. Standard ‘float glass’ is the most common used for windows, with a heating process used to anneal glass for enhanced durability. Annealed Bends are made from raw material which can be comprised of float, Patterned, K, wired and self cleaning glass.
- Toughened curved glass – Toughened or tempered curved glass is produced from annealed glass which is heated and then cooled rapidly. This introduces stress into the glass surface which strengthens the glass. Once subject to impact or stress, toughened glass breaks into small blunt fragments, thus reducing risk of injury.
- Laminated curved glass –made with two or more layers of glass, this safety glass option is held together by an ‘interlayer’ to prevent injury. We can supply a range of laminates including cast in place, coloured or patterned glass can be curved. coloured laminates can also be used to produce different effects.
