Toughened Glass

Glass tempering or toughening is a thermal process of heating the glass up to 700-740°C followed by fast and uniform cooling – through which the glass becomes up to 5 times harder, without losing its elasticity.

An essential element for decreasing the probability of breaking during the tempering process is the careful processing of the glass edges. It is well known that the faulty processing of the glass edge equally affects the quality and the mechanical properties of the final product.

The tempered glass is a type of safety glazing material used for glass walls and doors, windows or curtain walls, laminated panels for railings, bathroom elements or glass furniture applications – especially for applications needing the following:

  • A better resistance to the mechanical shocks (glass doors, point-fix glass panels, as well as glass banisters, etc.).
  • A better resistance at the thermal shock (the glass that is subject to intensive sun rays or are mounted close to some heating sources such as the wallsplashbacks with colored glass, etc.).
  • A better protection against the risk of breaking or decreased risk of injury.

Our equipments

In order to obtain quality products, Transparent Design has continously invested in the latest technology manufactured by reputable professionals in the field.

Now, we extended our capacity, using 2 lines of glass tempering, benefit from uniform and controlled heating technology, including full convection system, with great productivity in both flat and low-e glass (low- emissivity 0.01 and over) .

  • LANDGLASS ULTRAJET A326OU – 6000 X 3300 MM & 5-19 MM (2021)
  • LANDGLASS ULTRAJET PLUS BOTTOM SUPERAIR – 5000 X 2400 MM & 3.2 - 19 MM, MIN. DIM. 150X300MM (may 2022).

Starting with FEBRUARY 2024 we will have the third tempering line operational – LANDGLASS ULTRAJET LD-A3050U – 5000 X 3000 MM & 5-19 MM, that will enable us to raise the production from 1100 sqm up to 1600 sqm tempered glass during 8 hour shift.

Glass tempering technology complies with the European standards EN 12150 and EN 1863.

In May 2020, Transparent Design received the certification BSI Kitemark™ BS EN 12150 for thermal tempered glass:
