Camframe can cut glass to replace broken picture frame glass. We stock glass of 3 mm and 5 mm thickness. If necessary we can also cut plastic glass for child-friendly artworks. We also supply the following:
- Plastic glass cut to size
- Regular glass cutting service
- Non-reflective glass cutting
- UV glass
- Special UV non-reflective
For valuable artworks we can also supply expensive, UV filtering glass. Just ask!
Before Camframe invested in a glass cutter/mount cutter we cut all our glass by hand. Cutting glass by hand to fit small frames is not that difficult, but cutting glass for large frames is not only more time consuming but also can result in wastage.
To cut glass by hand you need to pray that the cut has been evenly scored. Large sheets of glass must be handled with care, not only for one’s own safety but also for the safety of anyone else’s who may be in the workspace. To ensure that glass breaks evenly along the length of the cut you need to apply even pressure with the cutting tool.
