Many of our windows feature toughened glass that is specially created with safety in mind. If a break occurs the glass is designed to shatter into tiny pieces, avoiding dangerous heavy shards that may cause injury.
When we perform window and glass repairs we consider the location of the new window and determine if toughened glass is recommended in that location. Typically this is for windows located next to doors or below 850mm height (windows that are near the floor).
Above 850mm height and away from doors we would typically use float glass – standard in our industry.
