How Can You Use Tempered Glass In Your Home Or Office?

Tempered glass. It's the strongest glass out there for interior design. The special heat treatment process it undergoes makes it harder to break because it adds thermal resistance. It is heated to very high temperatures and then rapidly cooled, making it strong yet brittle. This makes tempered glass panels 4 to 5 times stronger and 5 to 8 times more impact resistant than untreated glass. If it does break it will fragment into small fragments that lack the sharp dangerous edges found in normal glass that has shattered. It's also heat resistant, unlike normal glass, which begins to fall apart at around 100 degrees Celsius (or 212 degrees Fahrenheit).Tempered glass can also withstand temperatures of up to 320 degrees Celsius (or 608 degrees Fahrenheit). This means tempered glass is perfect for anywhere that may be exposed to the elements or hard impacts.
