We were asked by the client to create a totally bespoke glazing feature to provide a centrepiece for the reception area.
Mega Glass closely collaborated with Cre8 Joinery, and designed and supplied a wonderful glazing structure that had the wow-factor.
To achieve such a bespoke and unique glass concept, Mega Glass produced panels to intense levels of accuracies beyond industry norms to ensure individually bespoke mitres were in in place to achieve design and ready for UV bonding.
It was a seamless process of testing, re-testing to ensure the finish glass structure transferred the LED light through the joints of the glass to create a spectacular effect.
Mega Glass were sent an initial render by the client, unsure as to whether it could be done. Their vision was to create a glass structure to enhance the timber reception desk.
Our team worked tirelessly to produce a series of design mock-ups and samples which eventually overcame the design issues to achieve the brief.
The manufacturing process involved sandblasting mitres into 10mm toughened low iron glass. Each angle was carefully designed and manufactured, which was critical in the light transfer process.
Traditionally, it is difficult to UV bond different mitres and intricate angles and it is also equally difficult to bond glazing structures without affecting the transfer of light. But our team achieved it and carefully produced glass with intricate details to then UV bond the panels together in such a way where the light transferred across each and every joint.
The lighting was provided by offset LED bulbs which were integrated into the structure of the reception desk.
Mega Glass were proud of the glazing structure adjoining the reception desk, and is a result of our team’s innovative thinking and problem-solving abilities.
Not only did we design a concept that other glass suppliers couldn’t achieve, but we completed the whole process within the set lead times and with a striking end result.
