Edgework

All products come with polished edges as standard. Polished edges have a smooth shiny finish giving your product a high quality finish. It is also the safest way to handle glass.

Some products will offer ‘Bevelling’ as an option for the edgework of your product. This is an angle edge adding a decorative finish to your product. Not all items of glass and mirror will offer this option due to the usage and thickness of the mirror and glass.

The size of the bevel is 25mm as a standard size.

Surface Processing

Some products will give you the option to add surface processing.

Sandblasting gives your product a frosted glass effect to your glass. It is a process that is carried out in a machine where a grit medium fired on the surface of the glass to create a white/opal/frosted appearance. This is applied to one side of the glass, if you have opted for painted glass it will be sandblasted on the opposite side to the painted colour.

Easy Clean Coating is a clear treatment that is placed on the glass to achieve a cleaner effect of glass. The treatment is not easily wetted by substances therefore making the glass easier to clean. Easy Clean is perfect for shower screens and in areas that the glass is in a wet environment. You can either add the coating to one side of the glass or both sides.
