Products - Toughened Glass

Toughened or tempered glass is float glass that is heat processed to increase the strength. It is also designed that it the glass breaks it breaks into small granular chunks that are unlikely to cause injury. Toughened glass is made to measure – that is – it is cut to size & then toughened. Once the toughening process has been completed the glass cannot be cut. Commonly toughened glass is used where safety glass is required & laminated glass is too thick for the frame, it is used for panels that have cat or dog door fitted to provide extra strength & safety, it is used for glass topped tables, showerscreens pool fencing, balustrades & partitions etc. Some patterned glass can also be toughened to order.
