|Heat Soaked Glass|
|Custom Laminated Glass|
Toughened or tempered glass is a type of safety glass. Toughened glass is made by heating annealed (float) glass uniformly through a furnace to temperatures exceeding 600 C. The annealed (float) glass is then transferred to the quenching chamber of the furnace where it is rapidly cooled. This process increases the compression forces on the surface and the tension forces inside the glass, which gives toughened glass four to five times more strength than ordinary annealed (float) glass of the same thickness, combined with much greater resistance to impact. In conclusion, if this glass is broken the contained stress is released and results in the glass breaking into small harmless particles.
We have a wealth of experience in producing toughened glass to specification. Our products are used in a wide range of applications from traditional window applications through to interiors and architectural needs.
