CONTOUR

DESCRIPTION

CONTOUR curved glass is produced in a horizontal mould. The glass is gradually heated to approximately 600°C, at which point the glass softens and takes the shape of the mould in order to obtain the desired bending radius. CONTOUR is the annealed glass version and CONTOUR SECURIT is the toughened glass version.
 

 

 

PRODUCT APPLICATION

Curved glass can be used for internal and external applications:

  •  Glazed partitions
  • Shower screens
  • Furniture
  • Revolving doors
  • Counter tops
  • Lifts
  • Guarding and balustrades
  • Street furniture
  • Glazing in façades
  • Commercial frontages
  • Atriums, canopies

Curved glass is available annealed, toughened or laminated or can be assembled into double-glazing units, depending on the requirements of each application.
 

ADVANTAGE

 

CONTOUR glass creates harmonious space structuring for interior design purposes. In outside areas, the curve of the glass means that adventurous outlines become possible: the angles of façades, roofing, doors and display windows.

New product

The spectrophotometric performance of CONTOUR / CONTOUR SECURIT is identical to float glass of the same composition and thickness.

 

CONTOUR / CONTOUR SECURIT must be installed in strict accordance with the installation guidelines provided by our technical department. Amongst others, the width of the channels in the frame must be:

  • at least twice the thickness of the glass
  • or at least the same thickness as the glass, plus 10 mm, plus the thickness that is needed to produce a peripheral seal (preformed or filled with silicone).

CONTOUR / CONTOUR SECURIT should always be installed in accordance with current national regulations. As a general rule, CONTOUR is installed in accordance with the installation instructions for SGG SECURIT toughened glass.
