Glass is chosen for its aesthetic properties, transparency and resistance external conditions – such as UV light, chemicals, weather, water and heat. For safety and strength, we use safety glass. Two methods are used based on the application. Where edges are exposed and polished for a beautiful finish, we use tempered glass. Table tops, balustrades and frameless screens are example applications. Glass is heat treated to improve impact resistance, and if broken will shatter into non-sharp particles. Where edges are concealed we specify laminated glass – two panels of glass adhered together with a transparent film and will hold together when broken maintaining functionality until a replacement panel can be produced.
