The main advantages of toughened glass are its high impact and temperature resistance, the flexibility of the material and safety in the event of breakage. All these characteristics make toughened glass an excellent material for creating both large glass structures and doors, as well as furniture elements such as shelves and tabletops.
The toughening of glass involves subjecting it to heat treatment at temperatures as high as 680°C, followed by air cooling. This allows it to be six times more resistant to impact and high temperatures. Such glass increases the safety of use as it breaks into small pieces if broken.
