A creative alternative for architects and designers, Orient bent glass is tempered or heat-strengthened glass that is bent, during the heat-treating process, to a specified radius to create unique profiles for installations in commercial and residential applications.
Flat glass is heated until red hot, carefully formed to the desired shape, then tempered by super cooling to trap high energy within the glass. The resulting bent tempered glass has up to a fourfold strength increase compared to annealed glass of the same thickness and if broken, breaks into an innumerable number of relatively small fragments of more or less cubicle shape.

This product begins as flat glass commonly selected from the broad range of commercial float products including clear, ultra clarity low-iron, grays, bronzes, greens, and blues. The surface may have a reflective, low-e, self-cleaning, or other pyrolitic coating. Specific colors and coatings are often known simply by the brand names assigned by primary glass manufacturers. We also process patterned, stained, cast, glue-chip, ground, and acid-etched glass. These flat pieces are CNC processed and then undergo the complex processes to create bent tempered glass
