Tempered Glass Applications

In this article we will explain different applications for tempered glass

What is tempered glass?

Thermally tempered glass is float glass that is gradually heated to a softening temperature of between 575ºC and 635ºC and then cool very rapidly. In this way it is achieved that the glass has a structural resistance and impact 4 times greater than that of untreated glass, having the additional advantage that in case of breakage it is fragmented into small harmless pieces (for which it is considered one of the types safety glass).

Tempered glass can be used in multiple applications, as it is a safety glass it is recommended for use in public places and in homes where there are small children, since in the event of breaking it is made into small pieces with rounded edges, which do not cause sharp wounds.

The tempered glass allows holes to be made, notches for hinges and all kinds of cutouts to be able to fix it to the wall, using hinges or trims, this gives us a lot of versatility and allows multiple designs.

Once tempered glass is tempered it is no longer possible to work with it.
