TEXTURED AND CURVED GLASS

 

SLUMPED TEXTURED GLASS

Slumped Glass is a kiln formed glass where a texture is created in the glass.  The glass is heated and forms over the moulding.  Once cooled, the glass has become "slumped glass".

Depending on the moulding technique used, this texture could be a standard texture or have a design embossed into the glass.

The slumped glass can be clear, tinted, enamelled colour or colour coated.

To conform to safety standards the resulting glass can be heat toughened or may be laminated.

Slumped Glass is also known as textured glass or kiln formed glass.  Profile Glass is the exclusive manufacturer of "Pro Slump" slumped glass.

The durable nature of glass lends itself to be used in a wide variety of applications including but not limited to:


SHOWERSCREENS

The only showerscreens that we supply are in slumped, textured glass.  The texture can be either one of our standard range or we can create a custom design. 

They are commonly 10mm toughened, slumped frameless showerscreens.

We can supply the glass to your specifications or arrange for measure and installation.

For a no obligation quote, please supply us with the glass sizes.  Don't worry, these only need to be approximate for quoting purposes.

 


VANITY TOPS

Slumped glass vanity tops are made using a variety of specifications. If a vanity top is to incorporate the basin(s) then either 15mm or 19mm non-toughened glass is used. Due to the nature of thermal toughening, deep contours in glass mean that it cannot be toughened. Therefore extra thick glass is used.

If the top is to have independant basins mounted on it then 10mm toughened glass is used.

The underside of the top can be colour coated similar to splashbacks or kept clear.


WINDOWS

Slumped Glass is commonly used for sidelights (glass panels next to doors), door insert panels, bathroom panels and wherever else obscurity and privacy is required.

The glass can be glazed by your glazier or we can organised glazing for you.  We provided flat borders on our window panels to assist in sealing the edges within the window frames.

The glass can be made into safety glass by toughening or laminating according to the required building codes.

The design can be one of our standard textures, a combination of these textures or a more complex design according to your desires and budget.

DIVIDERS

Slumped Glass dividers are used to divide rooms without loss of light. The slumped glass can give privacy to waiting rooms as will as a talking point for the room. Using standard textures, custom designs and logos, the panels can be created to suit your requirements.

Profile Glass can provide the glass or also arrange for the stainless steel framework and installation as you require.


SPLASHBACKS

Glass splashbacks (or backsplashes) have been in the market for many years and are a proven alternative to tiles in both the kitchen and bathroom.

Slumped glass splashbacks are the next generation in glass splashbacks.  They create a feature in the kitchen, moving away from the clinical look of plain glass splashbacks. Slumped glass has the added benefit of not requiring the continual wiping to maintain a clean look.  Due to the natural undulations on the surface of the glass, once painted the slumped glass does not have the highly reflective look of a mirror.  Every wipe mark and finger print is not obvious.

The only splashbacks that we supply are in slumped, textured glass.  The texture can be either one of our standard range or we can create a custom design. 

The glass used is low iron glass (no green tint therefore a true colour) or float glass (with a green tint) depending on your colour requirements.

We can supply the glass clear or we can colourcoat it according to your colour scheme.  The colour has either a metallic  or pearlescent base to highlight the texture of the glass.

The maximum panel size is 2900 x 1750. 

 Our splashbacks are all 6mm toughened safety glass.

We can supply the glass to your specifications or arrange for measure and installation.

Incorporating our waterjet cutting machine we can cut powerpoint holes and other complex shapes that are often required for splashbacks.

For a no obligation quote, please supply us with the glass sizes and shapes required as well as powerpoint locations.  Don't worry, these only need to be approximate for quoting purposes.  If you know the colour you would like, we can also determine what glass type you will need.


WATERFEATURES

Slumped glass can be incorporated into a waterfeature in a multitude of ways. Using stainless steel framework, a selfcontained waterfeature can be created. If the feature is required to be a permanent fixture, then we can consult on site, design, manufacture and install.

 


SIGNAGE

Using a variety of techniques including but not limited to slumping, glazed paints, sprayed paints and sandblasting, Profile Glass can create a panel of glass with your logo incorporated. The panels can be simple wall mounted signage or incorporated into dividing panels, windows, doors.... the list is endless!

 


 

 

CURVED GLASS

We curve glass to a radius specified by our customer.  

We curve the tricky bends that most companies cannot do as well as large commercial bends.  

The glass can then be laminated for safety.  

Common applications include:

 

Shopfronts

Revolving doors

Display cabinets

Feature windows
