E.scape Glass is available in 6, 8, 10, 12, 15 and 19mm thick clear float glass. Colour tinted glass is available in green, blue, bronze, grey and super grey (subject to availability). Glass can be colour coated in opaque and metallic or sandblasted.
Maximum panel size for 6 and 8mm; 2600x1500mm, 10 and 12mm; 2800x1600mm. Depth of some patterns varies between thickness of glass.
Due to the handmade nature of E.scape slumped glass in some cases patterns, on a larger scale may very slightly from samples provided. Care should be taken when selecting textures as images may not overlap from panel to panel. The molding process may cause random variations in background textures and some expansion, contraction or toughening markings may be evident in the final product.
Slumped glass has two texturally different sides each with corresponding optical differences. It is generally preferred to view the glass from the smooth side.
All E.scape slumped glass is produced with fired edges, additional edge work is not necessary.

E.scape Glass supplies a full range of hardware for installation and is happy to advise on the correct fittings for your project.
T e m p l a t e s
Standard or counter sunk holes, radiuses, corners, curves and special cutouts are available. The diameter of the circular holes should not be less than the thickness of the glass and the total area of the holes should no exceed 10% of the area of the panel.
The glass has a nominal flatness, however where necessary a flatter glazing border (generally 10 to 40mm wide) is provided to ensure ease of installation.
E.scape Glass requires finished glass sizes for all panels. All panels manufactured to a tolerance of plus or minus 3mm from quoted sizes. Templates must be provided for all non standard custom shapes and must be clearly marked with hole diameters, cutouts etc. We reserve the right to judge each job on an individual basis

Where human impact is a possibility or local bodies require, it can be toughened to comply with local building regulations.
All processing must be done before the glass is toughened, any attempt to cut, drill or edge work the toughened glass will result in damage.
All slumped glass conforms to New Zealand and Australian safety standard ANSIZ97 UA when toughened and should be installed in accordance with ANSIZ97 UA safety standards. Setting blocks and spaces must be used at all times.
When toughened, slumped glass increases in tensile strength 4-5 fold and takes on the same safe breakage characteristics of toughened flat glass breaking into small relatively harmless fragments. Toughened Glass has the same sound installation properties as annealed glass. Normal weathering or exposure will not affect toughened slumped glass however the toughening process does not increase the resistance to scratching or abrasion.

Special care and considerations should be made to allow for lighting etc which could effect the finished result. A lighting consultant should be advised if this is a consideration.
