The process of glass edging
Glass edging or edge finishing means processing the edges of a glass panel by grinding.
This operation is essential for safe handling and for improving functionality and appearance.
In the case of tempered glass, edge finishing is mandatory to avoid glass breakage in the tempering furnace.
For installations where there are no aesthetic requirements for the edge finishing, the glass edging can be shallow.
If the case of joints or visible edges after installation, complex edge finishing is required.
Types of glass edge finishes
Depending on the appearance, the edge finish can be:
- Matte (satin)
After finishing, the edge is smooth, but without having a glossy surface.
The matte finish modifies the light reflection, and the edge appears darker.
- Glossy (polished)
After finishing, the edge has a glossy appearance.
This finish provides a uniform appearance on all sides of the glass panel.
Depending on the shape, the finished edge can be:
The glass has a straight edge, perpendicular to the faces of the glass, and offers a sleek appearance.
The glass has a round edge finish or edge radius, similar to the roundness of a pencil.
The glass has an angled edge on the face of the glass, to accentuate the shape of the glass.
If both edges of the edge are machined, it is called both sides bevel.
