What is Tempered Glass?

Are you worried about a glass shower door being unsafe for children? 

You might have heard that tempered glass is the standard for shower glass doors, but what does that mean for safety? 

Shower glass is tempered, meaning that it has undergone a special heat treatment process to increase its safety. Tempering strengthens the glass and causes it to shatter into small pieces rather than cracking or breaking into large, dangerous shards. If the glass breaks, the severity of potential injuries is significantly reduced due to the size of the shards produced. 

Standard building codes require tempered glass to be used in shower doors and panels, which can be identified by a small etched logo in one of the corners.

Maintaining Tempered Shower Glass

Maintaining tempered glass requires simple regular cleaning and gentle care. To keep your tempered
glass looking its best, wipe away any dust or debris with a soft, lint-free cloth or microfiber cloth. For general cleaning, use a mild, non-abrasive glass cleaner or a mixture of warm water and a small amount of dish soap. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that can scratch or damage the glass surface.
