Tempered glass is stronger and more durable than ordinary glass. It is manufactured through thermal tempering process, under which the glass is first treated with heat until it softens and then rapidly cooled,
When a tempered glass is subjected to force, it disintegrates into tiny blunt pieces, which significantly reduce chances of serious injury. Commonly used for decorating modern glass façade, tempered glass is usually recommended for skylights, shower doors, computer screens, glass entrances, fireplace enclosures, and areas where there is greater risk of thermal breakage. With high edge strength, tempered glass is a preferred choice in fixed point glazing and spider glazing.
