Unique applications of Tempered glass

Buildings and glass share a special relationship. The various properties of glass make it the perfect material to be used in a variety of applications and spaces.

As a result, architects and designers can make use of glass that provides numerous advantages such as privacy, safety and more. 

If safety and security are your main concern, make sure you opt for tempered glass, also known as toughened glass since it is stronger than ordinary glass.How is tempered glass made?

AIS Stronglas, which is a type of toughened glass, is processed and controlled by thermal or chemical treatments.

This is done to increase the strength and make it stronger than ordinary glass.

This constant reheating and cooling puts the outer surface into compression and the inner surface into tension. By putting the glass under such stress, when broken it crumbles into small granular pieces instead of shards, and are less likely to cause injury.

Some benefits of AIS Stronglas-

  • Highly Durable
  • Five times tougher than ordinary glass
  • Lowers the risk of breakage on impact

Toughened glass plays an important role in exteriors when it comes to glass windows and facades. As the glass is five to six times stronger than ordinary glass, it can provide better protection and safety. This type of glass can also be used to build large windows, doors, sliding doors, staircases and much more.

Handling and Installation:

While glass has a variety of appliances, poor handling and improper installation can lead to damaging the glass. Hence, it is important to follow the right steps while handling any type of glass.

Home & Office Applications:

Toughened glass plays a vital role when it comes to heat resistance and durability within your homes and offices. It is used for windows and doors to provide extra security and in interior applications such as glass tables and partitions. This reduces the risk of injury as the chance of the glass breaking is very low and if broken, it does not cause injuries.
