Tempered Glass | Coeur d'Alene-Hayden Glass Company

Tempered glass is not glass with a pleasant attitude. Tempered glass is a glass that has been heat treated. The tempering process makes tempered glass harder and stronger than regular glass.

Tempered Glass Safety

Tempered glass becomes a safety material used in specific applications where regular glass cannot legally be used. If tempered glass breaks, it will break into small pebbles that are less likely to cause severe injury than the large shards of regular glass.

Tempered Glass Uses

Samples of where tempered glass must be used are all doors (including shower doors), any window next to a door, or any window within 24 inches of the ground.

If you have any questions about where tempered glass needs to be installed, please Contact us today.
