Applications & Installation Portfolio
Joel Berman Glass Studios cast glass is produced by firing glass on an inert ceramic mold to a temperature sufficient for the glass to conform to our exclusive sculpted mold surface. The glass must be heated to the softening point without melting the glass. The exact procedure is a copyright process that creates areas of varying depth, relief and texture in the glass.
casting must occur in a manner that provides glass to return to its
original annealed state to meet all factory specifications. If holes
are required to receive hardware, it is preferential that the holes
or notches be cast into the glass rather than drilled after the casting.
Patterns may shift slightly during the casting process and pattern alignment
will be within 3/16".
the glass can be tempered and surface polished. JBGS cast glass is free
of divitrification and tempering marks. The glass may vary in thickness
of kiln cast glass is the same as clear float glass. Please take into
account that the framing and glazing methods are of equal importance
to the glass. It is required to be installed in accordance with current
national building standards. It is important to inspect the condition
of the architectural glass and hardware on an annual basis to ensure
all components are performing adequately.

Information Treated Glass
Glass, like all other functional products, will greatly benefit from a program of routine maintenance. While regular cleaning of the glass is the most obvious aspect of a maintenance regimen, it is also important to inspect the condition of adjacent materials such as grouts, adhesives, fasteners and hardware.
Architectural glass should be reviewed at least annually in order to ensure that related components are performing adequately. After ensuring the glass is firmly affixed, or fastened in place, and all adjacent materials are functioning satisfactorily, cleaning can be carried out in the following manner.
If a more
thorough cleaning of coated glass is necessary, the following materials
and methods should be used.
- Soft lint free cloth (Do not use coarse brown paper towels), and a
non-abrasive, non-caustic glass cleaner (Diluted Clear-Vu, water, mild
alkaline soap. Do not use acidic or strong alkaline solutions).
Method - Spray the cloth lightly with cleaning solution, DO NOT SPRAY THE GLASS DIRECTLY. Dab the cloth softly on the glass surface to remove dust and lint. For more heavily soiled areas, use a light circular motion to remove dirt.
Clean all accessible surfaces of the glass including edges, this will improve light transmission, and add to the lustre of the glass. Note: This document is not intended to supersede the manufacturers maintenance information developed for related or adjacent materials. Where available, individual product manufacturers maintenance information must be followed. If you have any questions regarding the above, please call 1-888-505-GLASS.
