Laminated Or Tempered Glass?


When deciding to change glass in a door or in a stair railing for example, someone may ask you: Laminated or tempered? What's the difference? In short, both of these type of glasses are considered safety glass types. 


  • Tempered glass is 'toughened' glass
  • Laminated glass is 'a glass sandwich'


Tempered glass is 'toughened' glass. A regular piece of glass is cut and polished first, then placed into a furnace and heated to 1200 ferenceits before beign rapidly cooled down. 


Tempered glass is about 5 times stronger than regular glass

Tempered glass shatters into very small pieces, reducing injury risks


Laminated glass is 'sandwiched glass'. Basically to panes of glass are seperated by a thin layer of vinyl and then sandwiched together. This process allows for many advantages that make it very safe glass.


When broken, laminated glass stays in one piece

Laminated glass is UV resistent
