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.

Glass Staircases By Bear Glass Brooklyn NY

Glass stairs or glass staircases are becoming more and more common day to day. Glass staircases at home are one of the first things that people notice. Bear Glass use glass components for glass staircase systems; i.e. glass stair treads and glass balustrade infill panels to make an average house look contemporary and modern.

Glass stair treads are usually manufactured using a combination of 10mm float and 25mm float, laminated together. A non slip surface can be achieved in several ways, the most popular being an all over sandblast and Ritec coat finish.  Another popular anti-slip preference is for grooves to be cut into the front edge of the tread.

A custom built glass staircase is only limited by the designer’s imagination, and can make use of a wide variety of materials to produce what are often strikingly original forms.

Most of us probably take our staircase for granted and think of it as a simple way to ascend or descend between floors. Stairs usually take center stage at the entrance to our home, so Bear Glass can let you through the wide range of staircase styles and trends to optimize their performance.

Here are few tips from Bear Glass while choosing the right stairs design:

  • Style – match your staircase to the style of home
  • Needs – do you need storage underneath
  • Natural home lightening– staircases can be dark so strategically position windows
  • Flooring surface– match your floor with your stairs
  • Safety – what are the capabilities of the homeowners, like children/elderly persons
  • Avoid tripping points – differ surfaces on entering and exiting so your body visualizes and feels the change

With so many years of glass staircase design and production experience, Bear Glass can produce according to the design that you like. As a leading glass staircase manufacturer, we pride ourselves on quality and price of our glass products. Bear Glass ships their products nationwide. We do everything on glass.
