Common Questions Answered About Shop Front Windows

The best glass for a shop front is toughened or tempered glass. It is highly durable and shatter-resistant, providing enhanced safety and security for the premises. Additionally, it offers excellent transparency, allowing potential customers to see the products on display clearly. Moreover, toughened glass is more resistant to environmental factors and is less prone to damage, making it a practical and cost-effective choice for a shop front

The recommended thickness for shopfront glazing is typically between 6mm to 10mm. However, the specific thickness will depend on various factors such as the size of the glass panels, the level of security required, and the location of the shopfront (e.g., high-crime areas may necessitate thicker glazing). It is essential to consult with a professional glazing provider who can assess your specific needs and local regulations to determine the most appropriate thickness for your shopfront glazing.

Difficult to cut or modify: Toughened glass is designed to be stronger and safer, but this also makes it more challenging to cut or alter to specific shapes or sizes, requiring specialised equipment and expertise.

Limited post-production alterations: Once toughened, the glass cannot be drilled, cut, or modified further. Any required alterations must be made before the toughening process.

High initial cost: Toughened glass is generally more expensive than standard glass due to the additional manufacturing process involved.

No repair options: Unlike regular glass, toughened glass cannot be repaired if it gets chipped or scratched. Replacement is the only viable solution.

Despite these disadvantages, toughened glass remains a popular choice for various applications where safety, durability, and resistance to breakage are crucial considerations.

In summary, tempered glass and toughened glass are two different names for the same type of safety glass that undergoes a
special manufacturing process to increase its strength and safety properties.

Burglars can break toughened glass, but it is significantly more challenging for them to do so compared to standard glass. Toughened glass is designed to be much stronger and more resistant to impact, making it a deterrent for potential intruders

  • Can you tell if glass is toughened?
    Identifying toughened glass typically requires visual inspection by a professional glazier or glass expert or looking for specific labels or markings indicating that the glass is toughened.
  • Can you cut toughened glass with a glass cutter?
    No, you cannot cut toughened glass with a glass cutter. Toughened glass is specially treated to increase its strength, making it harder and more resistant to cutting compared to regular glass. If you try to cut toughened glass with a glass cutter, it will likely shatter due to the internal stresses caused by the tempering process.
  • Does toughened glass crack?
    Toughened glass is designed to be stronger and more resistant to impacts compared to standard glass, but it is not indestructible. If subjected to extreme force or localised pressure beyond its capacity, toughened glass can crack or shatter. When it does break, it will fracture into small, granular pieces with dulled edges, which is a safety feature intended to reduce the risk of injury from sharp shards.
