What is the difference in the types of edge work?
Edge work does two things: (a) it takes the sharp off the glass and (b) it gives presentation to the glass.
We offer four types of edge work:
Seamed Edge - This edge is ground just to remove sharpness. This is not a decorative edge and is used primarily for safety purposes where the glass or mirror edge will not be visible.
Ground Edge - The edge is finely ground straight. The finish has an opaque milky look and is used as a decorative edge when economy is important.
Polished Edge - A highly polished straight edge. This is a glossy decorative finish commonly used for tabletops and shelving.
Pencil-Polished Edge - A highly polished edge with a slight radius. This is a glossy decorative finish commonly used for tabletops and shelving.
