Toughened (also known as tempered) glass is a type of safety glass that is processed by treating the glass with a controlled thermal treatment.
This process introduces stress into the glass and produces a glass 4 – 5 times stronger than annealed float glass.
Tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the inner surface into tension. Such stresses cause the glass, when broken, to crumble into small granular pieces instead of splintering into jagged shards as broken standard float plate glass.
We order toughened tempered glass from our external supplier. General turnaround time for this glass from measure, order to install is generally 2 weeks
We will arrange a time for a member of our professional glazing team to come to you and conduct a free onsite measure, assessment and quote. Once you accept our quote, you then simply need to select the preferred glass you would like to install.
