Polishing, Bevelling & Drilling

 

At Ames Glass, we can perform various mechanical processes on glass to give different effects and finishes

Bevelled Glass. What is it?

The bevelled edge glass look is achieved by cutting around the edge of glass at an angle and its effect enhances the glass aesthetics dramatically. Bevelled glass is frequently used for the likes of table-tops, shelves and door panels. Bevelled edge mirrors are also very popular.

Glass edge polishing

We can also use our glass polishing machine to not only enhance the look of glass giving a clean visual finish, but also to provide a safe edge. This is particularly important for exposed edges on glass balustrades, shower screens and shelving for example.

Glass Drilling

For clients who need mounting or access holes, we can use our glass drilling machine to drill holes to your sizes. Don’t hesitate to give us a call to let us know your requirements or simply submit an enquiry through our contact form on our contact page.

Security & Safety Glass

Special glass is required for specific situations or projects, namely, to provide security and safety. Ames Glass can provide safety glass cut to size to meet the needs of all clients.

High levels of security are commonly achieved by using toughened laminated glass which importantly breaks but stays in one piece which is why it is also a type of safety glass. This effect is achieved by having two pieces of glass bonded together with a special resin, where one side can break whilst the other stays in-tact.

Customers often want to have burglar proof windows, and for this we can increase the thickness of the glass and internal resin depending on the client’s requirements. Toughening glass this way increases the mechanical strength of the glass by 3-4 times and enhances its safety properties as it shatters into small pieces when it breaks. For more information don’t hesitate to contact us.
