What is Tempered Glass?

Tempered glass is safety glass and by law, is the only type of glass permitted for bathroom shower installations.  It's called safety glass because tempered glass will never break into sharp, jagged edges.  Instead, when broken, tempered glass shatters into small oval pebbles.   It's important that our clients understand basic properties of tempered glass to protect your frameless shower investment.

- Never cut or drill tempered glass.  It will shatter.
- Extreme heat conditions such as fire will also cause tempered glass to shatter.
- Tempered glass does not protect glass clarity or prevent hard-water stains.
