Tempered Glass

The process of tempering glass makes the glass stronger and causes it  (when you break it) to shatter into small pieces instead of breaking into jagged pieces like annealed (non-tempered) glass. These smaller pieces are less likely to cause injury when broken.

  • Approximately 5x stronger than annealed glass. 
  • Suitable as safety glass (in doors, hazardous locations such as showers and <18" from ground)
  • Increases wind load
