Safex Architectural Tempered Glass

Toughened Glass is also known as Tempered Glass. Safex Architectural Tempered Glass is processed by heating normal glass to a temperature near its softening thermal level and then forced to cool it by a uniform blast of cool air. This results in additional strength, resistance to thermal stress, and impact resistance.

Applications :

  Shower Enclosures     Frameless Glass Partition
    Extreme wind load area     Staircases
    Rear and side wall of sport courts     Fire place enclosures
    Windows     Glass Facades
    Heat Soaked Glass     Bullet Resistant Glass
    Shop fronts     Structural glazing
    Shower screen     Escalator side panels
    Balustrade     Table top

Properties

  Safex Architectural tempered glass is approximately four to five times stronger than annealed glass of equal thickness.
  Unlike ordinary glass which breaks into sharp harmful pieces, safex tempered glass breaks into small harmless fragments.

Precautions

  Once toughened the glass cannot be cut, drilled, bevelled, deep etched or acid treated in any kind.
  Strain pattern is not a defect, this is a common characteristic of all tempered glass. This is visible when toughened glass is viewed at sharp angles or under certain lighting conditions.
  Spontaneous breakage is a result of impact damage, internal inclusions, wild splatter or windblown debris. Where this breakage is a concern, heat strengthened/ heat soaked glass should be considered.
  As toughened glass is heat treated, bow, wrap or roller mark distorted may be evident. This is within limits set by ASTM standard.
