Tempered glass is used in many things that are essential for every household, be it your car, computer, microwave, cell phone, or the windows of your house. Tempered glass is much stronger than regular glass, and does not break into sharp fragments when struck, but breaks into small pebble-like pieces without sharp edges.
This reduces the risk of injury due to its nature of breaking into small, circular pieces instead of sharp, jagged shards. Another benefit of tempered glass windows is ease of clean-up if they ever do break.
Safety: The basic advantage of having a tempered glass panel as a window is that it is safer than regular glass. If you have small kids at home, it is suggested to have tempered glass, which can reduce the intensity of the accidents that may take place in the house, apart from preventing small-to-moderate accidents in the first place.
Strength and Durability: As said before, tempered glass is stronger and hence can survive strong weather changes easily, be it strong wind pressure, tornado, or heavy rains. Almost all tall buildings (i.e. skyscrapers) use tempered glass, as they are most likely to experience heavy wind pressures. Apart from this, its durability and strength also allows consumers to go for frame-less windows. Frame-less doors and windows are in demand these days, as they are a part of modern home decor.
Quality: The tempering process does not affect the transparency of the glass, which provides you with a clear view that is necessary for the window, while maintaining structural rigidity. Another advantage is that they help you maintain the temperature of the room. Being heat-resistant, they can resist temperature up to 200-300 degree Fahrenheit.
Designs and Varieties: This glass is available in various attractive designs and patterns that allow you to experiment with myriad designs. You can choose from clear or obscure varieties that are standard and widely used. If you wish to go for colorful glass, stained or insulated glass windows are great for you.
