Water Jet Cutting
A water jet cutter is also known as a water jet. This is an industrial tool capable of cutting a wide variety of materials including glass, using a very high-pressure jet of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance.
Frosted glass is created through a process of sandblasting a clear sheet of glass. This method allows the glass to appear translucent as it diverts light particles and blurs the images simultaneously. Frosted glass is mainly used to obtain visual privacy while still allowing light to penetrate the sheet.
CNC processed glass offers almost unlimited design possibilities in glass, ideal for unusual shapes and kitchen worktops. CNC processing allows us to produce virtually any shape, (from computer design, technical drawing or template) polish internal edges and give stunning edge effects.
Brilliant cut designs are the perfect way to decorate anything containing glass, from mirror wardrobes to doors and partitions. Brilliant cut designs are produced by grinding a v shaped groove into the face of the glass which is then polished to a brilliant finish.
Our in house silvering process allows glass designs to toughen mirrors. This unique service makes Glass Designs the obvious choice for large residential developments where mirror glass splashbacks have been specified.
U.V. Bonding gives a virtual invisible joint, it allows glass to be bonded to glass or metal. Ultra violet light is used when curing the adhesive as this technique creates a joint as strong as the glass itself which eliminates the need for mechanical fixings.
The perfect way for architects and designers to display creative images onto facades, windows and design features. A permanent product created by applying ceramic inks on the glass surface and then firing in a furnace to encapsulate for the life of the glass. The ceramic inks are applied up to 750 dpi resolution obtaining clear and defined images. When fired at approximately 650 °c the product is virtually none destructible and therefore suitable for almost any application.
