Toughened glass, also known as tempered or safety glass, is one of the most widely used architectural glass products around the world. Here at Peterlee Glass, we can supply toughened glass for a range of applications.
What exactly is toughened glass and why is it so popular?
Toughened glass takes its name from the fact that it is 5 times stronger than regular glass. It is useful in applications where greater strength and safety is needed, as toughened glass is up to 500x more resistant to heat and shock than ordinary glass. It can withstand severe impact without breaking, but if by chance the glass does break, patterns within the glass mean that it shatters into small, circular pieces. This differs from regular glass that breaks into large, sharp shards that are more likely to cause injury to those nearby. Toughened glass therefore reduces the risk of harm by a significant amount.
