Glass Edge Polishing

What is glass edge polishing?

The purpose of this glass polishing service is to create an aesthetically pleasing and safe edge to the glass. For example, take a frameless shower enclosure, glass table top or glass balustrade where the edges of the glass are exposed. Polished glass edges are crucial to a high quality glass processing process in order to give the glass product as much functionality as it has flair.

Thicknesses of glass between 4mm and 15mm can be easily accommodated by our high-tech Schiatti Angelo glass polishing machine. This can produce either a neat and safe flat finish or an arriss diagonal finish – whatever you wish.


Expert glass edge finishing by machine and hand

Our skilled glass processing team can polish glass sheets and provide polished edge mirrors in a wide range of sizes and shapes, from simple diameters to more irregular and intricate shapes. Edge polishing is usually carried out on the straight outer edges of the glass but abc Glass Processing can also polish the edges of simple shapes or pieces of glass with radius corners (or dubbed corners).

The ability to polish irregular shapes, and the size of a radius that can be polished, differs by thickness and shape and irregular shapes are assessed individually. Please contact us for more information or to get a quote for your bespoke glass product.

Why and when should glass edges be polished?

If the edges of the glass will be exposed when installed, for safety and aesthetics, the edges of the glass should have a polished finish. If the glass is to be fitted within a frame, there is no need to polish the edges of the glass.

Which edges of the glass are polished?

If glass edge finishing is required, all edges of the glass will be polished.
