When glass is inserted into mass of door it becomes life-like. All our models are available in glazed version.We emphasize the beauty of door by virtue of multiple-layered glass – triplex or various glass treatment techniques: glass fusing, stained glass, glass painting, engraving and sandblasting.
Varadoor company has the subdivision specialized in processing of glass. We perform any type of glassworks on our own plant – from glass cutting to glass painting – and use only high-grade glass.
Shape glass cutting
Machine consists of three elements:
1) pyramid stocker which allows to work with four types of glass;
2) self-loading cutting table;
3) table for glass breaking with unloading levers.
Supplied glass is loaded to pyramid stocker. Manipulator takes glass sheets and lays them down to cutting table. The process is computer-assisted to prevent glass from scratches or breakage in unloading operation. Varadoor company tends to keep every sheet of glass. When sheet has obtained the required shape it is smoothly moved on air cushion from cutting table to operator. Operator cuts off excessive sections, then sheet is loaded to stand..
Varadoor uses special equipment for facetting of glass. Facet is a thin inclined cut-off on front face of glass. Optionally facet is available in matted or simple type, straight or shaped, with required angle of inclination. Facet width is 10 to 60 mm. Facetted glass edge is often used in interiors of various styles. Facetting is rather simple procedure, however it adds perfection to glass and fits well into any design.
Special furnace for glass fusing under 800°С is used. Workman stacks the cutoff workpieces in straight rows. The glass is stewed for two hours under forced heat evenly distributed above working surface.
Layers of glass fuse into one another up to uniform mass. This allows to achieve glass squares spangled with multi-colour grains, beads, buttons, leaves and this is only quite a few examples of fusing operations we make. When you look at some products you can not believe that this is only glass.
After washing and seasoning each layer is sent to colander, a special glass-pressing furnace which splices glass layers under temperature..
Glass is a basic material for triplex. However, anything can be added to it. Fabric, metal plates and even polymers can be pressed between layers - everything one can wish for.
Triplex glass is not only beautiful but also extremely tough. It is quite hard to break it, and shivers of glass will not fly apart because they will be restrained with the film.
There are several techniques of stained glasswork. We make it with self-adhesive stained glass film. Designer creates a figure on basic glass according to pattern. (Figures on white or black glass are the most magnific). He cuts out the pieces of self-adhesive film and fix them on respective details. Designer passes a roller over the surface of figure to prevent forming of air bells. Then excessive parts of film are cut off and border lines of details are separated with special bone. Golden or silver lead-like film is glued to them as in classical stained glasswork. Thus a fabulous composition is obtained.
Stained glasswork with film is cheaper than brazed glasswork, while the visual effect is not a penny the worse than traditional stained glasswork. It can be used for decoration of doors, windows, ceilings and partition-walls.
Outline of future figure is countoured on basic glass. It is performed on special equipment by preprogrammed layout of future figure. Then designer manually fills the contour with special water-glass paints of different colours according to selected pattern. This allows to get a real picture on glass instead of canvas.
Anything can be drawn, even flowers of Garden of Eden or samurai. Any picture acquires the other life on glass. This technique allows to create very fresh, colourful images that will never wash out or lose the colour.
In our production we use engraver. The process is fully automated – program is set to controller of equipment and image is processed according to programmed pattern. Operator only controls the process.
Instrument rotates up to 3500 rotations per hour. Water is discharged into work area continuously to prevent overheating of glass and instrument. This provides optimum temperature conditions.
Nowadays engraving technique allows to make very distinct and clear image that will never be damaged with cleansing agents and lose its freshness in course of time.
Then glass is placed into special equipment where it is fixed by suction cups to prevent any excess motion and scratches. Under strong compressed air blast the particles of high-silica sand either matt the whole surface or make figures on sections glass uncovered with self-adhesive film.
