Safety Tempered glass is one of two kinds of safety glass regularly used in applications in which standard glass could pose a potential danger. Tempering Glass creates balanced internal stresses which cause the glass. Safety Tempered glass is 4-5 times stronger than regular glass and does not break into sharp shards when it fails. As a result of its safety and strength, safety tempered glass is being used in a variety of applications like: passenger vehicle windows, shower doors, architectural glass doors and tables, refrigerator trays…

The thermal process that cures tempered glass also makes it heat resistant. Due to this property, along with its strength, safety tempered glass is often referred to as safety glass. In the United States, since 1977 Federal law has required glass located within 18" of a floor or doorway to be made of Safety Tempered Glass.
