GLASSBEL – makes another step for bigger, innovative and improved. 3,2 x 7,0 m

GLASSBEL technical team has just commissioned the major tempering furnace upgrade at our glass processing plant in Klaipeda, Lithuania.

5 weeks of 24/7 joint efforts from GLASSBEL’s team of mechanical, electrical, engineering and operational personnel brought excellent results:

  1. Size of tempered glass increased to 3,2 x 7,0 m (126,0’’ x 275,6’’) and it is applicable for any coating (including all new triple silver coatings) and thickness;
  2. 30% increase in tempering and/or heat strengthening output capacity;
  3. Further reductions of roller wave and anisotropy distortions. Preparatory works for roller-wave and anisotropy scanner installation have been completed as well.

The current upgrade was the last step in bringing the whole GLASSBEL’s production to the 3,2 x7,0 m standard. It is worth mentioning that in November 2017 the new edge treatment center has been successfully commissioned, which also can process glass units of 3,2 x 7,0 m.

Therefore, currently GLASSBEL has full cycle of processing methods needed to work in modern architecture on a 3,2 x 7,0 m size: Cutting, Edge treatment, Heat treatment, Lamination and IGU assembly. These capabilities will give architects, developers and façade contractors more opportunities to realize their ambitious ideas in architecture and glass.
