Toughened Glass

Toughened glass is produced by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Toughened or tempered glass is physically and thermally stronger than normal glass. Tempered glass is often referred to as safety glass. It is more resistant to breakage than normal float glass. When it breaks it stays in small pieces which is much safer. This glass is approximately five times stronger than annealed glass of equal thickness. It is suitable where safety glazing is required by building codes or design specifications and for all glass entrances and shop fronts. At Kit-Fab supplies we have decades of experience in producing toughened glass and are one of Ireland’s leading manufactures.
