What Is Toughened Glass?

Toughened glass, also called tempered or safety glass, is a special glass that does not break easily. If it gets damaged by force, it breaks into tiny pieces less harmful than the sharp-edged shards from shattered ordinary glass.

Tempered glass is produced by subjecting ordinary glass to specific thermal and chemical treatments. This process increases the glass’s strength and stability, making

it is four to five times more durable than regular glass of the same size and thickness.

In residential and commercial interior design using tempered or safety glass has

become popular and widespread in many areas of modern India. There are several

reasons for this popularity, and a lot has to do with the glass’ versatility, durability, and the existing aesthetic attributes of the material. These properties result in lots of applications requiring the use of toughened glass.

The good qualities of toughened glass have made it a popular choice among homeowners and businessmen looking for materials that offer strength and transparency in certain areas of their properties.
