Welcome to a world where curved glass not only impresses aesthetically, but also redefines energy efficiency standards. In our journey through this exciting universe, we will explore how curved glass is not only an inspired aesthetic choice, but also a technological solution that maximises energy efficiency in architecture.

The Curved Glass Manufacturing Process

Glass Selection and Preparation: It starts with the rigorous selection of high quality glass. It is then processed and prepared for the bending process.

Controlled Heating: The glass is placed in special ovens where it is heated to extreme temperatures. This critical step gives the glass the malleability needed for further shaping.

Shaping: The heated glass is then shaped according to design specifications. This is where technical expertise comes in, where our professionals ensure that the moulding process is carried out accurately, respecting the desired geometry and shape.

Controlled Cooling: The shaped glass is then subjected to controlled cooling to set its final shape. This essential process helps to reinforce the mechanical properties of the curved glass.

At Centru de Sticlă we can create curved glass with our high-tech production line.
Thermic Control and Enhanced Safety

Advances in curved glass technology allow for effective climate control, helping to regulate interior temperatures. In addition, curved glass, due to its manufacturing process and characteristics, adds an extra level of safety, which is essential in construction.

Examples, where curved glass has been successful


Curved glass becomes the symbol of modernity in the stunning design of the Arenas de Barcelona roof. This former bullfighting centre, now transformed into a shopping and entertainment complex, impresses with its slightly curved, translucent roof. The glass not only adds elegance, but also creates an open and bright atmosphere for visitors. The Arenas de Barcelona roof has a subtle domed shape, providing a great setting for shows and events. Made of more than 4,500 curved glass panels, this roof redefines urban space with a futuristic aesthetic.


Facades and railings

Likewise, our team at Centru de Sticlă strives to bring innovation to our work. At the Crystal Hotel in Sovata, we implemented a curved glass façade that maximises light and gives the building a modern look. The team also created curved balustrades, which ensure safety and add a modern touch.

Why Curved Glass is the Optimal Choice

Versatile design and unique aesthetics: Curved glass offers designers and architects versatility in design, allowing them to experiment with complex shapes and innovative geometries.

Maximising natural light: Curved glass optimises the entry of natural light into buildings, creating an open and bright environment. This enhances visual comfort and reduces reliance on artificial lighting, contributing to energy efficiency.

Strength and Durability: The bending process gives glass superior mechanical strength, making it ideal for use in railings, roofs or facades. Its impact resistance and durability make it a reliable choice for construction projects with strict safety requirements.

Choosing curved glass is not just a decision, but a journey into a fascinating world of aesthetics and performance. At Centru de Sticlă, our team of guides invites you to explore this journey together and let us transform your project into an architectural success story.
