Tempered Glass Solutions by Glass Doctor
At Glass Doctor, we understand how each type of glass is unique and thus should be treated with the highest level of care when handling, installing, and maintaining. Tempered glass in particular is important because of the high level of safety it offers users in the event of breakage.
Tempered glass, or toughened glass, is created by heating glass to approximately 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit before force-cooling it to create a smooth surface and compress the edges. Due to this special method of glass creation and the addition of added safety glazes, tempered glass is considered one of the safest glass options for windows, doors, glass furniture, and glass shower enclosures.
Tempered glass is considered especially safe because if it is broken or damaged, it breaks into large, rounded pieces rather than sharp, jagged pieces that can harm those who come into contact with it. This is especially important to consider in homes with younger children and pets.
This focus on customer safety is why Glass Doctor experts are specially trained to understand the risks of certain types of glass. It’s also why we recommend replacing windows and glass furniture items in your home with one of our custom tempered glass creations.
