Tempered Glass - Safety Glass

Modular Villages showing the Tempered Glass used in our accommodation units.

Tempered glass is a safety glass regularly used where standard glass could pose a potential danger. Tempered glass is four to five times stronger than standard glass and does not break into sharp shards when it fails.

The brittle nature of tempered glass causes it to shatter into small oval-shaped pebbles when broken. This eliminates the danger of sharp edges.

BCA requires the windows of mining accommodation to be made of tempered glass.
