There’s a simple, timeless beauty in flat glass. Vectra’s edge finishing capabilities provide you with a level of sophistication and refinement that is smooth to the touch.
Detailed edge work allows us to create subtle intricacies that can be both seen and felt. Our fabricators are trained to achieve levels of quality and precision higher than required by industry standards.
Our computer-controlled machine centers deliver a perfect finish, every time. Our precision tooling enables mechanical processing of specified sizes to industry tolerances.
Sometimes referred to as a “Handling Edge” the sharp glass edges are removed with a double belt seamer. Standard non-decorative edge finish for tempered glass. Not suitable for exposed edge applications. Used when inserting into an enclosed frame.
A small amount of glass is removed from the edge, two chamfers are added, and all surfaces are polished. Recommended for all exposed and butting glass edges.
Glass edges are removed and edge is fully polished with a beautifully smooth rounded shape.
Classic beveled edges are produced on specialty machinery at various widths dependent on glass thickness. Glass is removed from surface one/face of the glass or mirror panel and then polished.
A glass edge may need to be mitered if the intention is to form an angle between two adjacent panels/lites. Glass edge is removed from the edge at a designated angle and the surface is polished. Approximately 2/3 of the edge is removed leaving about 1/2 as a flat polished surfaces and a polished chamfer.
Miters are calculated by how many degrees are taken off the 90° square edge or angle.
Miters should be expressed as the angle taken off, e.g. 15°, 22.5°, 45°, etc.
Glass width measurements shall be given from long points of glass as shown.
Drawings sent should indicate back or front face miter view with degrees.
