A creative alternative for architects and designers, Bent tempered 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.Bend tempered glass is custom-tempered by heat treating glass through a horizontal tempering furnace. Although Bend tempered glass is usually specified as fully tempered, Bend tempered glass can be heat-strengthened for applications where fully tempered glass is not required. Heat-strengthened and tempered Bentemp glass is available for insulating glass (IG) units using clear, tinted, reflective, Low-E glass (including the new generation of post-temper able Low-E coatings) or spandrel.
Typical applications include glass handrails, spiral staircases, custom shower enclosures, curved ceramic frit spandrel glass, revolving doors, partitions and insulating glass units. Depending on the application design, there is specific information that will be required to ensure accuracy. Handrails
