Project Description

Even when rounded or polished the weakest part of all glass panels tend to be the exposed edges. It is important that during the design process that consideration as to how potential damage to the glazing can be caused and what can be done to prevent it. As part of our design specifications we regularly include for clients on toughened safety glass exposed edges (which are open to potential damage and vandalism) a stainless steel bonded edge trim section as seen in the photograph. On laminate glass panels this trim is regularly used to hide and protect the laminated glass edges, which show the PVB central layers – continued exposure of these edges can lead to delamination of the glass panels.
