   low iron glass (Starphire)

  • The basic flat glass product that tends to break into large, jagged shards and may pose a potential danger. 
  • When deciding between tempered and annealed glass you want to consider the application in which it will be used as well as requirements. 
  • If you are putting the glass in a very low traffic area that no one will ever touch, annealed glass might be sufficient. 
  • Pro's: Annealed glass can be cut to any shape and size and it could be polished down without a limit. ​

tempered Glass (Safety)

  • This acid-etched glass produces a smooth and sweet white hue, reflectively emitting a soft light. 
  • Perfect for designing patterns or privacy.  
  • The glass is applied in customized portions, designs and it will look great wherever it is applied. 

  • Tempered glass is one of two kinds of safety glass regularly used in applications in which 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.
  • Due to this property, along with its strength, tempered glass is often referred to as safety glass. 

  • Is the combination of two or more panes of glass sealed with air, or inert gas between the panes.  
  • The construction of an insulated unit is designed to help control energy transfer from outside to inside or vice versa.  
  • One of most common questions is if one of the glass pieces breaks, can just one piece be replaced to complete the unit?
    • The answer is no, the thermo unit needs to be replaced because the seal is broken.

Annealed Glass Chicago

  • Laminated glass is a kind of safety glass that is commonly used in places where safety or security is paramount. 
  • The interlayer in the glass is a film of a tough, yet pliable material known as polyvinyl butyral(PVB). In the event that the glass breaks, the two layers are held together by the PVB, allowing the sheet as a whole to bend and absorb the impact.  
  • The city of Chicago may require for certain areas to have this special type of glass for the safety of the general public.
