Toughened glass is a proven solution with added strength and safety, offering unrivalled protection from damage due to impacts and the elements. This type of glass is required in virtually every building project in the UK, and is also used to create common domestic appliances, such as car side windows or oven doors. Cameo Glass supplies high quality toughened glass you can trust for a wide variety of applications, including doors, windows, roof glazing, barriers and other structural applications.
Toughened glass is up to five times stronger than regular glass of the same thickness. It provides excellent heat and cold resistance and is designed to meet the highest safety standards. Much like security glass, toughened glass is capable of withstanding severe impacts and damage without shattering. This makes toughened glass ideal for architects and builders, allowing them to enhance how glass can be used in the design and construction of homes, offices, factories, and other structures.
Throughout the process of making toughened glass, strict emphasis is put on maintaining structural integrity. The glass is subject to a toughening process at the end of the making procedure, including edgework and polishing. Toughened glass is also subjected to a heating and cooling treatment that establishes high surface compressive stresses while balancing tensile stresses at the centre.
The process is monitored closely to ensure that the glass meets industry standards. If the glass breaks, the contained stress is released and the glass breaks safely into small and relatively harmless particles which can be contained easily and subsequently disposed of without causing injury.
