Tempering for High Resistance to Breakage
In commercial projects that require exterior window, doors or storefronts, tempered glass is the only practical choice. If your high rise is in a windy area or you have frequent storms or high heat, cheaper glass can break and create damage to your store and injury to your customers and employees. That is why this type of glass is also referred to as tempered safety glass. Everyone is familiar with the sharp edges and corners that result from regular glass breakage, and no homeowner or business owner wants to deal with that.
The International Residential Code sets certain building codes that specify where tempered glass should be installed in a home to prevent injury or death.
