More than 25,000 square meters fully equipped with state-of-the-art technology to offer the most perfect and automatized product range in curved glass.
Curves are beautiful”, “The beauty of curves”. These are the two new concepts that Tvitec has started to implement on its fabrication of curved glass for the architectural glass market worldwide. The Spanish company is running one of the largest plants in Europe for the processing of this fine product.
More than 25,000 square meters equipped with state-of-the-art technology, never seen before on such a specialized sector. The new premises are located near Ponferrada, at the industrial zone of Cabañas Raras (León-Spain), right next to Tvitec’s main plant with more than 100,000 square meters of fabrication surface.
The machinery that Tvitec has developed to process curved glass is able to provide two main solutions: annealed curved glass and heat treated curved glass. On annealed curved glass Tvitec is capable to fabricate large sizes with assorted geometries either in insulating glass, safety and acoustic laminates and printed glass. The result, based on some emblematic jobs already delivered, is a really high optic quality.
On heat treated curved glass Tvitec is offering cylindrical lites with an excellent finish.
By using the Length Bending technology and depending on the glass size and overall thickness, a minimum radius of 500mm can be achieved.
The Cross Bending technology allows Tvitec to fabricate sizes up to 6 meters with radius from 2000mm on.
Curved glass products by Tvitec are handled on fully and highly automatized lines in comparison with the rest of the industry. This fact allows the possibility of offering solutions with shorter lead times and more competitive prices.
Tvitec counts on a highly specialized technical team providing architects, consultants, contractors and facade builders with customized advice so that their projects can achieve from the very beginning a perfect balance between aesthetics, luminosity and sustainability on glass either for residential applications, office buildings, infrastructures or interior spaces.
On any project with curved or flat glass that can appear to be complex, Tvitec and its team of experts will be able to propose a unique, satisfactory and simpler solution, and from now on, giving a whole and combined recommendation for both curved and flat glass.
