Tempered glass is a special type of safety glass that has been treated to make it stronger than regular glass. Tempered glass is typically used in buildings, vehicles and construction equipment. The treatment process involves heating the glass to a high temperature and then rapidly cooling it. This process causes the surface of the glass to compress, making it much stronger than ordinary window glass. Tempered glass is sometimes referred to as safety or shatterproof glass.
Tempered glass has many advantages over regular shower glass doors:
It’s safer for people who come into contact with it because it breaks into small pieces rather than sharp shards when broken.
It can be used in places where people are likely to be injured by broken glass.
It can withstand more force than other types of windows before breaking.
