At Bear Glass we pride ourselves on staying up to date and keeping up with latest cutting edge technology. That being said, Bear Glass is excited to introduce our new water jet technology! From i ntricate glass shapes to mirrors, glass ornaments, and more, there’s almost no glass cutting application that a water jet glass cutting system can’t tackle. Both thin and thick glass materials can be cut and detailed with a precise cutting stream. And because water jet cutting does not vibrate the glass, produce heat-affected zones, or leave behind rough edges, almost no secondary finishing is required. In addition, water jet cutting’s ability to generate exact, clean cuts with speed make it an efficient cutting process for the majority of glass cutting applications.

Glass and Mirror Beveling

Handling glass for edging and beveling has been a challenge to manufacturers and fabricators for so long. Glass Beveling is a process where the edges of a piece of glass are angled from some point on the surface to the edge.

Beveled glass is usually made with one quarter inch thick clear glass and creating one quarter inch bevel on one side around the entire periphery. It acts as prisms in sunlight creating color diffraction which helps to highlight the glasswork and also provides a spectrum of colors that we hardly can find in a clear float glass.

Beveled glass can also be obtained as clusters to create a specific design. These ideas of beveled glass design can vary from one to another. From simple two or three pieces to complex designs those are suitable with the windows or large panels of doors or side screens, everything can be given a perfect finishing touch with beveled glasses.

In the case of hand beveling, which is quiet pain-staking process and time consuming too, needs a good hand from roughing out the pieces on diamond wheel to proceed through several steps to a high-quality finishing with high polish, worth all the difficulties when it is finished. A hand-beveled glass can make you feel an antique charm of the glass-work that would surely add some special value there.

Beveled glass has various usages and it is growing in the present time. For home-interiors beveled glass windows or beveled glass exterior doors can change the whole view of home. The same thing can be told for a fancy office-building designing.

Beveled glass entry doors, beveled glass table tops or customized beveled glass mirrors have a high craze in the present time. Beveled glasses give you a scenic beauty with strength; beveled edges can also be applied to tempered glass so you can have stronger glass furniture with a fancy look.

Bear Glass has the answers you are looking for regarding wire glassWire glass is used in fire-rated windows and doors because it meets most fire codes. It is made by feeding a welded wire net into the molten glass before it enters the rollers. The wire does not add strength to the glass, but it does hold the glass in the sash if it shatters.

The process of wire glass, or wired glass, is sheet glass in which wire mesh has been inserted during production. The impact resistance of this glass is similar to that of normal glass, but in case of breakage, the mesh retains the pieces of glass. This product used to be accepted as low-cost fire glass but is no longer acceptable for this use. Now, wire glass is mostly used for windows because of it exceptional security qualities. Clear wire glass and obscure wire glass is available at Bear Glass.

Wire glass is a common sight in schools, businesses, and hotels across the nation. Wire glass is manufactured primarily as a fire retardant, with wire mesh inlaid in the glass to prevent it from shattering and breaking out under stress or when exposed to high temperatures. With the window intact, the wire glass keeps the fire at bay, protecting those on the other side from the harmful effects of smoke and flame.

Wire glass typically comes in two types — Misco and boxed. Misco is also called diamond wire glass. In boxed wire glass, the wire is rotated 45-degrees, so that it makes s a checkerboard pattern, rather than diamonds.

There are pros and cons of installing wire glass.

There are many myths about wire glass and its proper usage. Primarily, most people assume that that the incorporation of wire into the glass makes it stronger, and that this makes it a good option for security glass. Actually, the wire in the glass actually weakens the wire glass from a strength standpoint, and makes it more susceptible to breaking. What the wire does do for the glass is hold it in place. That makes it safer from the standpoint that a broken window won’t send glass fragments showering through a room (hence its use in schools), and that the wire will hold the glass in place under extreme temperatures (hence its status as fire rated glass).

Wire glass is a smart addition in any area where a solid fire barrier and safety glass are beneficial. This includes using wire glass in public areas such as schools, public buildings, and businesses, and particularly in areas of these buildings that provide escape routes in case of fire. Windows in stairwells and in hallways that lead to emergency exits are prime examples of areas where fire rated wire glass is a smart addition.

We ship wire glass world wide.
