While glass has its own unique set of physical properties, it is an amazingly flexible material for creating new and innovative design, and it is stronger than people realize. We pride ourselves on our ability to collaborate with clients, and to fabricate end products that match their dreams — and exceed their expectations.
For tempered glass products ordered with drilled holes, notches or cut-outs, all fabrication must be done prior to tempering. Since tempered products are under stable pressure, special care must be taken to account for sharp edges or corners and the distance between holes and edges. Vectra’s fabrication processes adhere to ASTM C-1048.
To provide you with notches and cut-outs, the corners must have fillets. A fillet is a rounded corner of which the straight edge emerges. The radius of the fillet must be equal to or greater than the thickness of the glass, but not less than 1/2 in. (12.7 mm).
