Glass adds modern elegance to architectural design, and in commercial buildings and highrises, it can look stunning. The last thing you want in your dividing glass or highrise window glass is weakness. A chip or crack will be more than unsettling when you know that it could be all that’s in the way of accidents or damage. Security, assurance and elegance are what toughened glass offer best, using glass within an architectural design? Make sure it’s tempered.
We manufacture and install tempered glass – available in thicknesses of 4 to 19mm – in and around London; we’d love to hear about your next project.
It’s Safer Alternative to Regular Glass Panels
Toughened – or tempered – glass is much safer than regular/un-toughened glass. In the event of breakage, toughened glass will not shatter into randomly-shaped shards, which are more likely to cause injury. Instead, toughened glass ensures the glass breaks into small, granular pieces.
How Do We Toughen Glass?
We manufacture toughened glass using thermal or chemical processes, making it considerably more durable than traditional glass products.
It’s important we cut the glass before toughening since it cannot be processed in any way afterwards.
You can Laminate Tempered Glass
The lamination process involves adding a plastic ‘interlayer’ (typically of polyvinyl butyral – PVB) between the two glass panels. Various materials can be laminated in this plastic layer, ranging from dried flowers to patterned fabrics.
Laminating offers the following features:
- chose from 4.4, 6.4, 8.8 and 10.8mm thickness;
- there is a wide choice of colours available; and
- you can opt for the ‘white diffuser’ option (6.4mm) which hosts patterns that scatter the light.
