Flat Glass

Flat Tempered Glass

A glass that’s all about safety……even when it breaks.

Tempered glass is often referred to as “safety glass.” And for good reason it’s more resistant to breakage than normal float glass. And if it is broken, it usually breaks into relatively small particles, which are less likely to cause injury.

 

Characteristics

  • Approximately five times stronger than annealed glass of equal thickness
  • Greater resistance to thermally-induced stress than heat-strengthened or annealed glass
  • Suitable for use as a safety glass
  • Tempered safety glass is also mandated in other parts of the world by individual country regulations or specifications

Applications

  • Suitable where safety glazing is required
  • Fire knock-out panels
  • All glass entrances and storefronts
  • Extreme wind loads
  • Fireplace enclosures
