Interaction between furnace, base materials, pressure and processing techniques gives unlimited freedom of shape. What is needed is a way of adapting design programs such as AutoCAD and Illustrator to the production of moulds on which glass can be heated and pressed. The addition of printing techniques and sandblasting makes it possible to create perfect aesthetic solutions producing a strong 3-D effect. Sheets can be manufactured in sizes up to 2000×3500 mm and thicknesses between 6 and 19 mm. Glass is naturally resistant to all climatic conditions and can be hardened and laminated to produce security glass of the kind already used for elevations, shop doors etc.
