Have you ever heard of tempered glass? If not, don’t worry: it’s an easy concept to understand.
Tempered glass is a type of safety glass that has been processed to make it stronger than regular shower glass doors. It’s used in windows and other applications where safety is important because it is more resistant to breakage than regular glass.
The process for making tempered glass involves heating the glass to around 1,100 degrees Celsius (about 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit) and then rapidly cooling it by putting it into water or oil. This rapid cooling may cause the edges of the glass pieces to be brittle, but this isn’t usually a problem because tempered glass is usually used in areas where there aren’t any sharp corners like corners where two pieces meet or corners where one piece meets a wall or ceiling.
