What is v-grooving?

V-groove glass adds a touch of elegance and enhances the overall aesthetics of a space. Similar to chiseling a piece of wood, glass fabricators cut V-shaped lines — both linear and curved — into the surface of a pane of glass to create intricate designs.

How can v-grooving benefit me?

V-grooving harlequins

As in the example above an application of harlequins requires either a lot of additional labor installing and cutting individual tiles OR by using v-grooving you can simply install a single piece of antique mirror with the design already v-grooved into it and in a matter of minutes you have a quick and easy solution?

What is the general cost?

The cost greatly depends on the difficulty of the project at hand but for the most part on a install such as diamonds or harlequins the cost is generally 50% less then labor to install them individually.

What is the benefit commercially?

EXAMPLE:  if you have a hotel and you’d like to have a diamond pattern installed into 80 rooms, you can either have a installer work for 4-6 hours per room to install the individual tiles OR you can have a installer apply mastic to the back of the mirror panel that is v-grooved and in about 10 minutes per room install the panel and walk to the next room.

How can I see up close what v-grooving looks like?

Thank you for explaining to us that V-grooving adds elegance to mirror glasses and enhances their overall aesthetic by cutting V-shaped lines into the surface for intricate designs. My cousin manages a glass company that sells windows and mirrors, so he is considering adding ones with V-groove designs to their products soon. I’ll take note of this while I help him look for V-groove services to hire for his glass products soon. https://www.ecd-co.com/v-grooving
