Toughened, safety glass manufactured from float glass, offers the appearance of ordinary float glass with the added benefit of being five times stronger. It is more resistant to thermal shock, making it ideal for use in fridge and oven doors, or in architectural applications where there is unfavourable shading.
Toughened glass can also be used in a number of other applications:
- Bolted assemblies
- Sliding doors
- Shower doors
- Vehicle side glass & rear lights
- Where wind loads or hail protection are considerations
- Fridge and oven doors
The maximum size that can be processed is 4000mm x 2300mm. This is, however, subject to other conditions, such as glass thickness and edge work requirements.
