At Woonsocket Glass Fabricators our “state of the art” machinery, together with highly skilled employees, create a combination few fabricators in the Northeast can boast. Computerized machinery allows us to create the following edge types, and more, by combining different machine functions, and a little imagination.
All of these profiles are the result of multiple diamond tools- from coarse to fine, which grind the glass to a specific profile and then the smooth the glass. A polishing compound is then used to brighten the edge until it is optically clear.
Beveled Mirror Glass
A specific angle is ground off the surface of the glass or mirror. This angle is dependent on the thickness, the edge remaining, and the width of the bevel. By varying any of these elements, we can create a very elegant looking piece. We have the capability of beveling widths up to 2″ wide. We also have the capability of beveling glass as thin as 1/8″.
Ogee Edge Glass
A very elegant curved edge which is brightly polished.
Miter Edge Glass
This is an edge which can vary anywhere between 0 degrees and 45 degrees. We have the capability of varying the edge remaining to whatever you wish. This edge is typically used for butting two pieces together which create an angle, but we can also use this edge to create a very appealing edge on thicker glass.
Double and Triple Bevel Glass
The same as bevel, except that we run the glass through the machine two times for a double bevel, three times for a triple bevel. Each time that the glass passes thru the machine, the grinding wheels are positioned at a slightly different angle. We are able to disengage the polishing wheels on one of the bevels, thereby creating a unique white frosted look.
Simply a combination of a beveled edge and an ogee edge.
Simply beveling one surface, and then revolving the glass and passing it thru the machine a second time on the opposite surface.
Flat Polished Edge Glass
The flat polished edge is our most popular edge. It is a very simple, very refined look. The edge is flat with the upper and lower part having a small highly polished arris. The edge is so brightly polished, you would be able to identify another person by looking thru the edge.
Pencil Polished Edge Glass
The edge is a more durable edge, much more resistant to chipping than most other styles of edges. There is a small radius profile which is polished. Please note that the clarity of this edge is not to be compared to the quality of a flat polished edge.
We also offer the following:
- Seamed Glass Edge
- “V” Groove Glass
- Plate Grooves
- Glass Notches
