If you have ever heard of tempered glass (toughened glass) before, you may be familiar with the tempered glass screen protectors that are made for your iPhone. Picture that, but times the size by 1000 to get a safe and tough window. Tempered glass is about four times stronger than ordinary glass, but unlike ordinary glass—which can shatter into jagged shards—tempered glass fractures into small, relatively harmless pieces. As a result, tempered glass is used in those environments where human safety is an important measure to take.
How Stevens Glass Tempers their Glass
Tempered glass windows are created by a type of safety glass process that uses controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the interior into tension.
Stevens Glass fabricates heat-treated material locally that meets and exceeds codes and expectations and has the ability to provide up to 70×144 sized lites that are very popular in the design community. We are tempering glass with the performance and quality you need and deserve. Call today for an estimate for your office space!
