Grinding is a process during which we eliminate uneven and sharp edges from the glass. Consequently, we receive a carefully processed, smooth and safe edge – this is one of the basic conditions for the usable glass. In order to achieve better visual effect, after grinding the glass edges may be polished additionally – this type of processing is commonly applied while manufacturing glass table tops, glass components of bookstands and other furniture as well as to execute various types of decorations in interior designing.
Grinding is also of great importance from technical perspective. In the course of glass cutting process, there is a risk of micro-cracks to occur along the edges of the forms that may result in the glass pane breaking due to increased internal tensions caused by mechanical (glass form deflection, impacting, vibrations) or thermal factors (strong exposure to sun beams). Owing to edge grinding, the risk of the said damages to occur is limited noticeably , hence the additional surface processing is commonly applied in case of ESG tampered glass.
Types of standard cuts:

3300 x 2000 mm
Minimum glass size: 150 x 150 mm
Thickness range: 3-50 mm
Type of cut: matt cut, polished cut
