Toughened or tempered glass is a type
of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass.
Tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the inner surfaces into tension.
Call Howie Glass for decorative patterned glass that is also much safer and efficient.
Get quality tempered glass from Howie Glass. Tempered glass is used in applications where standard glass could pose a potential danger because it is four to five times stronger than standard glass and does not shatter into large shards when broken.
Laminated glass is much harder to break than traditional glass because of the way it's constructed - with a piece of laminate between the sheets of glass. It's very durable and great for reducing sound.
Laminated glass is ideal for many security and safety applications. They can help protect your home or business from storm damage and last longer than normal glass.
If you're considering installing laminate glass in your windows, contact us first because it's not ideal for all applications.
