WHAT IS A SEAMED EDGE? HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED EDGEWORK?
A “seamed” edge is one that has been lightly sanded to remove any sharp burrs. Glass with a seamed edge is safe to handle but is not decorative.
It is our standard finish and is available at no extra charge. We will never send out glass with sharp edges that you could not handle safely without being cut.
The seamed edge is recommended for all applications in which the edges of the glass are not exposed.
For example, if your glass will be installed into the frame of a fireplace door and no one will see the edges once the glass has been installed, a seamed edge is all you need.
For shelves, table tops, or the like, you may want to consider upgrading to a more finished/decorate edge. Learn more about Edgework.
