Chicago Tempered Glass Supply for Safety
Our Chicago tempered glass is more durable than normal glass and offers resistance to breakage. It is also considered safety glass as it doesn’t shatter into large shards.
Tempered glass is a strong, durable, heat-treated type of glass. For large windows or door panels, it’s often necessary to replace the glass with tempered glass. A new piece of tempered glass is typically cut to the same size as the old piece. It’s fitted into the window frame and then fastened with screws or bolts to hold it in place. We can also use wood putty to align into place if required.
What are some of the benefits of tempered glass?
Tempered glass is a type of safety glass that breaks into small, harmless pieces when shattered. Tempered glass can undergo severe stress without breaking or shattering. This makes it an ideal material for stovetops, shower doors, sunroofs, and more. Tempered glass is typically made of either 2 or 3 layers. The first layer is a protective coating that keeps the inner layers from being scratched by anything outside the glass.
Our Tempered Glass
Tempered Glass is a non-crystalline solid material, with high molecular mass and internal stress. These properties are responsible for its fracture toughness, meaning that it does not shatter upon collision with another object. Tempered glass is specially designed to survive an impact without breaking into many pieces. The process of tempering involves heating the glass to a certain temperature, then cooling it rapidly by using jets of cold air, which lowers the internal stresses in the glass.
The process of repairing or replacing glass for most homes can be challenging, but it is an important step that must be taken seriously. Glass is essential in the home’s structure, and if not taken care of properly, can cause major damage to your property. From tiny cracks to large panels, replacing or repairing your glass is a responsibility that cannot be overlooked.
