CURVED GLASS DOORS – STANDARD UNITS AND AVAILABLE OPTIONS

All our curved glass doors come with Low-E double-glazing as standard. Comparing this with a standard pane of glass, our double-glazing units stop at least half the heat transferring through the glass itself.

Curved glass differs from flat glass in that manufacturing methods that can be applied and used with flat glasses are much more limited when dealing with curved glass.

When dealing with flat toughened (heat tempered) glass, the application of high performance (soft) Low-E coatings is relatively simple compared with bending high performance glasses. This is the reason that most curved Low-E glass is supplied with a hard coating (a coating that is part of the glass fabric and so less efficient than a soft coating which is applied onto the surface of the glass).

Looking at the diagram, you’ll see the various options available to you with our curved glass doors and windows.

CURVED GLASS DOORS– WHAT IS STANDARD IN OUR UNITS

All our curved glass doors, windows, in all models are supplied with:

  • 28mm double-glazing with low E glass
  • Toughened safety glass on both side

Recent investment in a convection furnace for our toughening plant now enables us to offer soft coated Low-E glasses. This means that our curved glass doors (and windows) can come in various options including a high performance Low-E coating that can reduce the centre pane of glass to a U-Value of 1.0 W/m2k.

To achieve this we utilise a glass called the Guardian SN51/28. Further technical details on the glass can be found on this link: http://www.guardianglass.co.uk/industry/product/detail/sn-51-28

All of our affordable curved glass doors and windows are custom made and we can build them in a variety of configurations and options, so please contact us and we can discuss you project and how we can help you to get exactly what you want.
