Heat Treated Glass
Heat treatment is a process that involves subjecting glass to controlled heating and cooling to alter its physical properties, making it stronger and more resistant to breakage compared to regular annealed glass. There are two general categories of heat-treated glass: heat-strengthened glass and tempered glass, both of which All Weather produces exceeding industry standards.
Heat-strengthened glass is twice as strong as annealed glass. It is better suited to resisting thermal stresses and edge damage and features a breakage pattern that is more likely to be retained within a glazing frame in case breakage occurs.
Tempered glass is up to five times as strong as annealed glass. It too offers superior resistance against thermal stresses and edge damage, but its breakage pattern is more conducive to having glass fall out of a frame into small, relatively harmless pieces, Because of this, it is classified by building codes as a suitable option where “Safety Glass” is required.
