Toughened glass is strong, has enhanced thermal resistance, and breaks into small cuboid fragments rather than irregular shards of glass and therefore is less likely to cause injury.
Toughened glass is used when strength, thermal resistance and safety is of utmost importance. Toughened glass is used in buildings for unframed assemblies (such as frameless balustrades), structurally-loaded applications, and any other application that would become dangerous in the event of a human impact.
Toughened glass must be cut to size or pressed to shape before toughening and cannot be re-worked once toughened. Polishing the edges or drilling holes in the glass is carried out before the toughening process starts.
We also supply sandblasted and tinted glass - see product details for more information.
