Bear Glass V-Grooving

V-Grooving

 

Bear Glass is the 4th generation family business specializing in working in glass. We are the largest stocking distributor of Walker glass in the nation.  Bear Glass products, offer a wealth of opportunities to architects, interior designers and decorators.  Any pattern can be designed by engraving a groove in the surface of the glass.  Our V-Grooving equipment is capable of producing custom engraved designs (commonly know as V-Grooving), with different profile engraving tools.

V-Grooving can be done on any architectural flat glass and mirrors.  Our V-Grooved glass can also be heat strengthened, tempered, and laminated.  Custom profiles are also available here at Bear Glass.  This is glass that has a groove or grooves put into it to create simple to complex designs for your liking.  Grooving can be used alone or even in combination with other design elements, such as silk screening, to create a myriad of patterns.

While most glass groovers are looking for high volume orders, which we like too, we’re happy to work with you to fill your low volume needs.  Polished, unpolished, straight, patterned, silhouetted.  These are just some examples of what Bear Glass can accomplish for you with our v-grooving.  If you want to add depth and beauty to an otherwise plain panel of glass for your new door line, wall system, window line, etc., you have found the right place!  Bear Glass is a world leader in v-grooving capabilities and is completely self-sufficient for v-grooving glass panels for doors, windows, and architectural applications.

Bear Glass is the largest capacity v-groove manufacturer in North America, and possibly the world.  We hold several U.S. patents in v-groove technologies, and with our ability to dress and shape our wheels in house, we are continually experimenting with new grooves and patterns.  Bear Glass V-grooved patterns split incoming light—almost like a prism—into a full spectrum of colors while exuding elegance and beauty.

Common Mirror Resilvering Questions

Frequently asked Mirror Re-silvering questions

Q: Is re-silvering needed?

A: Sometimes mirrors appear to be dirty or streaked on the front surface. The silvering on the back has no problem. So clean the mirror surface properly to check that it has no damage on the front surface.

Q: Is it possible to re-silver a small portion of the mirror?

A: Yes, it is possible to re-silver a portion of your mirror to re-silver. Unfortunately, satisfactory results are not guaranteed and are not always achieved by doing so. If you want the best result a complete re-silvering of the mirror is recommended.

Q: How long does Re-silvering last?

A: The re-silvering should last for decades. However, we can’t control the conditions in which mirrors are hung or mounted. Bathroom mirrors or other mirrors subject to excessive moisture has higher chances of getting disturbed quicker than mirrors in the bed room or other places.

Q: What is used to silver the surface of the mirror?

A: In Earlier mirror making silver was used to coat the glass surface. But in more recent times sputtering powdered aluminum or other compounds have been used in the place of silver. Therefore today, this process is also known as aluminizing. Which makes this service more cost effective.

Q: What if the edge of the m irror has Deterioration?

A: This is very common, frequently occurring on bathroom mirrors where moisture has puddled on the edges. It might not have been installed or sealed properly in the first place. If the mirror is large simple rectangle without bevels it will be cheaper to buy a new mirror than to have it re-silvered. One solution for the problem is to cut off the damaged area and then remount the mirror. Bear Glass also provides mirror cutting services for any thickness.

Q: Does Silver Paint touch up works as re-silvering?

A: No, It doesn’t. Using paint for re-silvering a mirror will get disappointing results. Mirror re-silvering process does involve many steps and techniques that is not possible at home unless you have the proper knowledge.

Bear Glass Has Super Grey Glass

Lately our customers have been asking us if we have grey glass in stock. And the answer is YES! Pilkington super grey glass combines stunning exterior aesthetics and unsurpassed interior glare control with the best solar control performance of any tinted float glass in the industry. On the outside, low-reflective super grey glass tinted Float Glass offers a dramatic, deep cool-grey appearance that increases visual privacy and dramatically reduces read-through from interior shading devices. Inside, it softens bright daylight and reduces glare, making it perfect for applications near computers and video display screens.

Product features & benefits include:

  • An uncoated float glass that provides the performance of a reflective glass.
  • Enhanced visual privacy and reduced read-through from interior shading devices.
  • Best solar control of any uncoated glass, super grey glass provides the lowest shading coefficient of any float glass and a better shading coefficient than many reflective glass products. This means super grey glass can help enhance interior comfort and reduce cooling loads.
  • Unsurpassed light and glare control improves visual privacy and reduces the need for blinds or shades. Super grey glass softens bright daylight and helps eliminate glare, making it the perfect “user-friendly” glass.
  • Low interior and exterior reflectance reduces interior glare and minimizes exterior daylight reflectance. Super grey glass is ideal where architectural designs or restrictions prohibit structures with high reflectance.
  • Ideal for Skylight applications requiring solar control with very low interior reflection, especially at night.
  • Distinctive aesthetics inside and out. Super grey glass offers a deep, cool-grey tint from the exterior, while providing a remarkably crisp, comfortable view from the interior. Super grey glass also provides color-neutral visibility from the inside, resulting in an undistorted, natural view
  • Uniform, no-read through look between spandrel and vision glass areas. The uniform appearance of super grey glass may eliminate the need for an opacifier in the spandrel glass.
  • Low UV  transmittance that significantly outperforms other tinted and coated glass products. 6mm super grey glass blocks 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays.
  • Excellent Availability,   super grey glass can be inventoried for short lead times and improved control of project costs.
