Bent and Curved Glass supplied the curved glass elements for use in the bi-sliding
stacking doors and windows installed at a recent project in Bellevue Hill,
Working in collaboration with Tzannes Associates Architects on the award-winning
residential project, Bent and Curved Glass accurately manufactured oversized laminated
curved glass elements to complement the bespoke framing and track systems. The curved
bi-sliding stacking doors and windows featured a circular design.
Curved glass was one of the major defining elements of the project, enhancing
both the function and aesthetics of the architect’s design. Bent and Curved
Glass was able to achieve fine dimensional tolerances to ensure the smooth
operation of the systems.
The project won ‘Best use of glass in a domestic project’ award at the
recent NSW Glass and Glazing Association Glass Project Awards 2014. The project
also received a commendation in the Australian Institute of Architects NSW
Chapter Awards for ‘Residential Architecture Houses – Alterations and Additions’.
Bent and Curved Glass can provide customised and locally manufactured
glass solutions for residential and commercial projects throughout Australia.
Exciting developments at Bent
and Curved Glass
Committed to continuously improving and upgrading its capabilities, Bent
and Curved Glass has sourced the highest quality manufacturing equipment to
meet and exceed the growing demands and expectations for glass in the evolving
BCG recently moved into a new larger factory consolidating its previous production
operations on two sites. The new location allows room for future growth and is
equipped with a new generation cross bending toughening furnace, enabling efficient
production of larger format glass.
Using its many years of bending experience, BCG has customised the
operation of a new convection furnace ensuring the best optical and dimensional
quality is achieved in perhaps the only large format cross bending furnace in Australasia.
The new furnace is now fully operational and the process of relocating and
refurbishing the original bending furnace is underway.
On completion of the furnace refurbishment, BCG will have the capacity
to produce curved toughened glass through the full range of tight radius,
tangent and composite radius curved glass including even larger sizes in a full
range of glass types, without any compromise on quality.
Curved glass options from Bent and Curved Glass include toughened,
toughened laminated, annealed, annealed laminated and double glazed.
Custom laminated glass can be supplied for PVB & EVA interlayers,
graphic interlayers, structural interlayers, thermal interlayers, acoustic
interlayers and coloured interlayers.
BCG supplies glass for diverse applications including windows, doors,
balustrades, pool fences, facade systems, floor panels, roof panels, display
cabinets, shopfronts, partitions, shower screens, splashbacks, stair treads and
