Your Guide to Selecting Proper Thickness of Glass
In order to ensure glass table top installation that is both secure and safe, it is important that we weigh your glass and determine how necessary it is to maintain it in place. A rule of thumb for selecting the proper glass thickness for your project:
Indoor Glass Thickness
Indoor glass is generally utilized for coffee tables, kitchen tables, and dining room table tops. We at IMAGO provide protection for a large selection of table tops. You are not limited to utilizing our table covers in only your home! Conference tables and office desktops also require protection. Our professionals suggest using a thickness of 1/4″ for a standard glass table top and its protective cover, but a thickness of 3/8″ is recommended for heavier tabletops without support. ½” thickness can provide maximum safety and strength for indoor glass.
Outdoor Glass Thickness
As outdoor furniture is multi-purpose, additional thickness is needed for an outdoor glass table top. The precise glass thickness will depend on the manner in which you will utilize your patio table. As far as the selection of glass, there are options that have a thickness of 3/32”, 1/8”, ¼”, or 1/2″, 1/4″. Yet table usage and personal taste are both still factors. Glass of a greater thickness works best in an outdoor situation. Tempered glass may be the appropriate solution if a glass table top requires a certain amount of strength. It offers additional strength and breaks into smaller pieces when broken.
Select Custom Glass Edges
Flat Polished Edge
In this method, the edges of the class are first cut before being flat polished, providing an appearance that is sleek. A 45° angle chamfer may be used on both the bottom and the top glass edges to eliminate sharpness.
Beveled edges are cut then polished at a special size and angle, delivering a framed and elegant appearance.
Pencil Polished Edge
The excellent aesthetics of smoothly ground edges with a bit of a curve giving your table top a unique look.
A seamed edge is only lightly sanded for a minimalistic and functional finishing.
Ogee Polished Edge
The edge in an ogee design is a concave arch that merges into a convex arch. This smooth design draws attention to your glass table top.
Mitered Polished Edge
This flat mitered edge is offered at a maximum angle of 45 degrees to the glass panel’s cut edge.
Triple Ogee Edge
This attractive edge style has an appearance similar to a waterfall with three ogee layers.
Raw edge does not cost too much but may be so sharp that handling it requires special gloves and caution.
