WHY CHOOSE TEMPERED GLASS FOR YOUR TABLE TOP
Tempered glass is a type of glass that has been strengthened through either a chemical or thermal treatment. The treatment “tempers” the glass by putting the outer surface under compression while putting the interior under tension. When broken, this process causes the glass to crumble into small pieces which are less likely to cause injury compared to dangerously large shards of glass that result from broken plate glass.
Additionally, tempered glass is more heat and scratch resistant than annealed glass, making it the safest choice for a table. Tempered glass is used in many applications from car windows to frameless shower doors and has made vehicles and homes much safer over the years.
You should choose tempered glass for most projects in your home. Any table that gets a lot of use will suffer from general wear and tear. Tempered glass holds up well under household use. If you are using glass to cover a solid table for protection or preservation, you don’t necessarily need to use tempered glass because the wood will support the glass and provide strength. However, tempered glass offers extra protection if something is dropped onto the surface.
