Frequently Asked Questions
Addressing myths & misconceptions about glass
What is printed glass?
We use a UV digital printing process to print our graphics onto glass. The premium quality inks are german-made UV inks that have high fade resistance and are cured using UV light during the printing process.
How can decorative glass be used on 3D surfaces such as curved structures and sculptures?
Glass can be bent or molded to various forms, from gentle curves and organic shapes to precise radiuses for cladding columns.
What are the possibilities when working with decorative glass? Can i customize more than clear and frosted panels?
The possibilities are limitless; it boils down to the imagination of the designer. Our team has been working with glass for more than 30 years now and have immense collective knowledge on the breadth of glassworking techniques available to us including cold, warm, hot, traditional and modern processes. By remaining updated on the latest technologies in glassworking, we are able to stay at the front of innovation to achieve all kinds of design and budget considerations.
There is much more to glass than it being clear or frosted; you can create endless graphics, textures and finishes using single or combined processes.
DURABILITY & PRACTICABILITY
Isn’t glass easily breakable and difficult to maintain?
Glass is by nature fragile. However there are ways to make it into a safety glass when used for interiors and facades. If safety is a primary concern, then the use of tempered glass is recommended. Laminated glass also provides safety and security because of an interlayer that prevents shattering, but is also prone to cracking.
1. Tempered Glass
2. Laminated Glass
Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by the interlayer known as ethylene-vinyl acetate, which is sandwiched between two layers of glass.
