Tempered Glass & its importance to the Architectural Industry

In the Architectural industry, tempered glass has become an increasingly sought after option due to its unique properties and versatile applications. Tempered Glass is specially treated to be stronger and more durable than traditional glass, making it an ideal option for a wide range of uses.

Tempered Glass undergoes a process that alters the molecular structure creating a product that is four times stronger than regular glass. Tempered Glass is also designed to shatter into smaller, harmless pieces when broken which reduces the risk of injury in the event of an accident.

Why is Tempered Glass so important in the Architectural Industry?

  1. Building facades: Tempered Glass is a key component in high rise buildings, as its strength and durability make it an ideal choice for withstanding high wind loads, seismic activity and other environmental factors.
  2. Interior partitions: Tempered Glass is now commonly used in interior partitions such as office dividers, conference room walls, and shower enclosures. It provides the ability to transmit light while maintaining privacy and sound insulation.
  3. Railings & Staircases: Tempered Glass is a popular choice due to its durability, strength and customization options. It can be customized with an array of finishes and texture to create a unique aesthetic.

In addition to the strength and safety features, tempered glass is highly customizable. It can be produced in a variety of colors, textures and finishes allowing architects and interior designers to create unique visual and striking designs.
