Contract glass insulating units are highly developed sealed double- or triple-glazing products available in a wide choice of glass thickness and glass types.
The perimeter of the unit is hermetically sealed with a dual seal system. The seal can withstand a wide temperature range. All products are available with one or more glasses in annealed, toughened or laminated form.
Contract glass insulating units are available as rectangles and a variety of shapes. Full size template is required for complex shapes (those other than triangle) i.e. parallelograms, trapeziums etc.
Toughened glass is manufactured by subjecting final-size, edge-worked panes of glass to a heating and cooling treatment whereby high compressive stresses are set up at the surfaces with balancing tensile stresses in the centre.
The high compressive surface stresses give the toughened glass its increased strength. It can however break under extreme loads, which bend the glass or by severe impact with a sharp object.
Toughened glass can be supplied with drilled holes. The diameter of holes should however not be less than the thickness of the glass. Enquiries should are submitted for any holes required.
Shapes other than rectangles can be manufactured; advice should be sought prior to ordering. Templates are required for the manufacturer of shapes. Tolerances on shape and hole position are subject to the complexity of the shape.
Smokeson Glass are one of only a few companies in Devon and Cornwall to be BSI CEB EN1279 Part II approved. This means that the units that we supply are often of a higher quality than from companies without this approved status.
