Tempered glass is manufactured through a process of heating and rapid cooling, making it four to five times stronger than normal glass. Tempering eliminates the danger of sharp edges because the glass will shatter into small particles when broken.
Tempered glass is used when strength, thermal resistance and safety are important considerations. It can be found in shower doors, patio doors, store fixtures and other applications that could be dangerous in the case of human impact.
