Tempered glass (otherwise called toughened glass) is one type of safety glass used for different applications, especially in cases when standard, untreated glass can pose potential danger to users. It is commonly used in automobiles, coffee maker carafes, oven windows, and many other applications, including skylights, computer screens, tub enclosures, door windows, and especially in display and showcases. Tempered glass showcases are ideal for retail settings, because of its impact resistance. Tecno Display produces quality display cases using different kinds of materials, including tempered glass. All of our designs go through careful planning and are manufactured with top notch craftsmanship. Clients have a wide range of product lines to choose from, ranging from tower cases to wall cases, countertop, and museum displays, jewelry cases, cash wraps, and many more.
Tempered glass is subjected to a chemical or controlled thermal treatment to increase the strength several times than normal glass. The tempering process balances out the internal stress of the glass, which causes it to break, in fact crumble into granular chunks, instead of jagged shards. Crumbled granular chunks cause fewer injuries than sharp shards. This type of glass is more stress and impact resistant, and can handle heat better, which is why it is often found in cook ware and display units in restaurants, bakeries, and eateries.
One disadvantage of tempered glass is that it must be cut to size and shaped prior to toughening and is impossible to rework once tempered. Drilling holes and polishing the edges should be done before the glass is processed. This makes it hard to make adjustments, should the glass not meet the desired or required shape and size. The concentrated impact of drilling holes into the already tempered glass may cause it to shatter.
Youâ€™ll find a wide array of tempered glass showcases in the market because of their resistance to stress and breakage as well as their safety features.
