55 Glass Los Angeles - Tempered Safety Glass
Depending on the application for your glass, you may need to have it tempered. Tempering is a process that heats and cools the glass. After glass has been tempered, it is about 4 times stronger than annealed (not tempered) glass. It is also more scratch resistant.
It is up to you to know if the glass you need must be tempered for a specific application (it is required by law for certain applications), but generally glass used in a hazardous location must be tempered, and glass used as a glass protector top or a glass table top does not.
Do you want your glass tempered? We leave this decision up to you. The downside of getting glass tempered is if it breaks. It will break into many very small pieces which is difficult to clean up. Also, if the glass is used as a table top and it breaks, then everything on the table can also fall and potentially break. The upside is that tempered glass is much stronger, more scratch resistant, and safer than annealed glass. It must be used in hazardous locations.
