How to Cut Laminated Glass

This webisode introduces you to the Tempered Glass product type. BJ, one of the owners here at A Cutting Edge Glass & Mirror and Byron (employee) demonstrate the unique characteristics that Tempered Glass is known for. Tempered Glass is considered a type of safety glass and is defined by its overall reinforced strength and constitution. Tempered glass is treated by heat and chemicals which increase its strength. This treatment allows it to endure force unlike traditional glass products. It can still break, but it’s much stronger than other man-made glass types. Another unique quality of Tempered glass is the way it breaks. Upon breaking it will fracture into small pebble sized pieces compared to normal glass, which breaks into large and dangerous shards. These qualities make Tempered Glass very popular in both residential and commercial applications. Especially when safety is a concern and/or priority.
