Here at Apex Glass we have a great range of patterned glass or frosted glass to add character and privacy to your property. Many in the range can be toughened, allowing them to used in doors where A-grade safety is needed.
Apex Glass and Glazing supply and install Laminated glass. In the majority of cases we can cut and install within the same day. Laminated glass comes in many different thicknesses depending on the level of safety that you require. The thinnest is 6.4mm and ranges all the way up to 12.8mm. If thick enough laminated glass can even stop bullets! The glass is made up from gluing two pieces of glass together with a clear resin. The safety aspect of this glass is proven if it were to break in situ. The glass will remain together leaving no shards protruding from the window frame. This is a fantastic product to install in your home if you have young children.
Toughened glass or "tempered glass" has been baked at a very high temperature then cooled back down very quickly. This makes it 3-4 times stronger than float glass of the same thickness. Toughened glass complies with 'British Standards Safety Glazing Materials' and can be used for shower screens, balustrades and glass table tops. When hit with sufficient force toughened glass will break into tiny little pieces that will cause minimal harm.
