Uses of Tempered Glass
Because of its increased strength, tempered glass has many practical uses in construction and auto purposes. Tempering puts the outer surface of glass into compression while the inner surface is put into tension. When broken, these stresses cause the glass to crumble into pieces instead of shattering into jagged and sharp shards, as normal glass would. This property increases the safety of tempered glass, making it ideal for use in frameless glass doors, skylights, large windows, sliding doors, elevators and more.
Quick & Easy Replacement
In addition to our custom tempered glass, we also stock all of the standard sizes of tempered door-lites for commercial use. This makes replacement of standard size doors quick and easy, so that you won’t have a broken door at your business for weeks.
