Why Commercial Tempered Glass is Necessary

Why Commercial TemperedHave you ever wondered what the difference is between residential glass and commercial glass? Commercial glass is about four to six times stronger than flat glass because it is tempered. Tempering involves treating the glass to be stronger by either rapidly heating and cooling the glass or by using chemicals to cause an ion exchange process. This helps make the glass heavy duty and more durable than the glass you’ll find in your home.

At Action Glass, we offer tempered glass repair and replacement for a wide range of commercial applications. Our team has decades of experience providing outstanding service and competitive pricing for commercial glass in Houston.

You may be wondering why you need tempered glass for your business. Most building codes require commercial buildings to have tempered glass windows for added safety. Tempered commercial glass is designed to withstand most impacts without breaking. However, when the glass does break, it breaks into small, rounded pieces to help reduce the risk of injury from sharp glass shards.

There are several reasons why your tempered commercial glass might break. For example, significant impact from things storms, attempted break ins, and vandalism. Repeated stresses on aging tempered glass may also lead to breakage. If you find yourself with broken glass, our team is available 24/7 for emergency board up and tempered glass repair.
