Have you ever wondered what tempered glass is and what it offers? If so, on this page, you can learn a little bit more about it. Make sure you contact Exp Pro Glass and Design Inc if you need more information about it or would want to get an estimate for your project. Our team in Alexandria, VA will be more than happy to advise you and help you make an informed decision.
Tempered glass, or also known as toughened glass, is safer than regular windows. The process of tempering changes the properties of the regular glass, making it harder to break. And when broken, it does not shatter into a zillion of little pieces but crumbles into dull cubes to prevent injury.
There are some situations when your windows need to contain tempered glass. When the windows are within 36 inches of where people walk and when the glass size is over 9 square feet, these are just two examples. To learn all of them, consult with one of our glass technicians. We will schedule an appointment to come to inspect your windows and suggest the solutions that will ensure your windows will be up to code.
Tempered glass is prone to breaking. If you want to prevent your glass from breaking, then you should consider installing unbreakable glass. In case you need a replacement, be sure to have our technician come and see the windows first. Our process requires us to cut the glass before doing the tempering. Once the job is complete, you cannot modify the glass, or it will shatter. We at Exp Pro Glass and Design Inc specialize in all things glass, from partitions for your office to tempered glass for your windows at home. Call our team in Alexandria, VA for more details. We will be happy to help you! (571) 207-9639
