OPT IN FORM
A polished performance
Preedy Glass have recently had two edge polishing machines installed in their factory.
As specialists in processing thicker glass, we place great importance on the edge of the glass being a thing of beauty. The new machines have cerium oxide polishing wheels, which is similar to what jewellers use to buff up diamond rings, which enables us to supply a highly transparent edge.
The additional machine increases our capabilities and ensures we can be even more reactive to customer lead times.
We have also taken the opportunity to replace our bevelling machine this month to ensure we are at the forefront of glass processing.
Bevelling is a decorative angled bordered finish to a piece of glass or mirror which gives the finished product an opulent look, with bevel widths possible up to 50mm wide.

Preedy Glass supply a wide variety of antique mirrors; these are authentic reproductions of original antique mirrors; styled and coloured using a specially adapted silvering process. Our mirrors combine both form and function by incorporating abstract designs and a vast range of colours to suit even the most contemporary properties.
Preedy Glass are pleased to expand on our current ‘Venetian’ range with the additional of our new ‘Grey Venetian’, see left. This is available in both 4 & 6mm, samples are available on request.
Preedy Glass supply a coated glass product. When placed in front of a flat-screen television, this gives the illusion of a combined mirror and television screen.
When the space behind the coated glass is dark, it performs as an elegant mirror. As light from the television penetrates the coated glass, its reflective qualities are lost, giving an unrestricted view of the TV screen. This space-saving design reduces the copious amounts of floor or wall space required by today’s large-screen televisions. Housing the television behind the mirror cuts clutter and significantly improves a room’s appearance.
Our ‘Water’ range of aspirational interior wall and furniture cladding gives a wide spectrum of choice, including designs inspired by fine damask fabrics and many other textured materials. These wonderfully stylish room fascias create striking design statements that add warmth and boldness to any interior, thanks to their three-dimensional effects and vibrant colours. One of our most popular material-backed glass is the Mississippi, see below.
Mirrors can be used to create the impression of space, and to maximise light sources in commercial surroundings. Preedy Glass have an extensive range, including diffused, acid-etched, technical products such as spy mirror and tinted alternatives including blue, green, bronze, gold, grey and peach. Tinted mirrors are currently in vogue, particularly the peach tint often called Copper mirror and was used in all rooms of a recent hotel refurbishment (below).
A Cracking Display
Preedy Glass recently installed this striking Sparkle Laminated Mirror on a bar front in London. We achieved this by using triple-laminated safety glass comprising of a mirror back, a cracked toughened glass middle panel and a low-iron glass protective front panel.
When combined with LED light strips, it creates a random bespoke reflective effect, which can be further customised through the use of tinted or antique mirrors.
The latest trend in ironmongery is black, and Preedy Glass are pleased to announce a new range of black hardware for use on frameless glass doors – perfect for showers, saunas and steam rooms. Available with a matt or gloss finish, they will give your enclosure a smart, sleek and minimalist look.
Here’s an example from our Pavone range.
Simply named The Boat, our workshop produced this bespoke sculpture for a sea-loving client. Entirely handmade using traditional glass working methods, this table centrepiece is a stunning creation. The hand-finished edges cannot be replicated, so this is a true one-off. Preedy Glass are specialists in both functional and decorative UV bonding, and we are always looking to push the boundaries to meet our clients’ requests.
What sculpture could we build for you?
