Are you confused about the multitude of options available for Windows and doors? As any other industry trends come and go in the fenestration industry too. A recent hit in windows and doors is glassworks and glass partitions. People who look for sleek, classy, elegant designs and a better view of your yard can definitely go for it. One of the reasons why people had stayed away from this trend all these years is because of safety concerns and the fragile nature of glassworks. Here comes a solution for it – toughened glass windows!!
The science behind toughened glass is simple. It is made by heating annealed glass under certain chemical conditions. This changes the nature of glass and brings about varied compression and tension in annealed glass. The outer layer is subjected to rapid cooling for compression and the inner layer to high temperature to bring in tension. The compressive stress on the glass can range from 60 to 100 mega Pascal. This compressive stress is what makes it strong to withstand external impact in the future. Even if in any circumstance it breaks, it will break down into fine pieces rather than large shards avoiding major injuries and piercing through your skin. On the other hand in the annealed glass, there is no balance between inner compression and outer tension. Thus even a small breakage would grow deep and eventually it would break into large shards of irregular sizes. This has proved to be a huge advance from earlier phases and toughened glass has replaced mobile phone screens, laptop screens, window glass panes, and car windscreens.

3) Heat Resistant Windows

Employing regular glasses in bathrooms or kitchens that may have varying temperature conditions would be a blunder. A splash of boiled hot water or a spill of hot curry might crack those glasses. On the other hand, toughened glassworks stand unaffected in these cases.

Toughened glassworks are available in many colors, patterns, and designs to meet all your desires.
