The word "glass" evokes in our minds a connection with something fragile, fragile, something that can collapse at any moment, scatter into smallest pieces. But progress does not stand in one place and its achievements allow beautiful products to give also unprecedented strength and safety. New requirements in modern construction are being met by the emergence of new materials with unique qualities.

Tempered glass has become one of such beautiful, transparent, elegant and at the same time very reliable materials for construction. It is glass whose safety properties are acquired through a heating and cooling procedure called "hardening". Rapid cooling of the incredibly hot glass causes the outside of the glass to solidify faster than the center, leaving it in tension. This makes glass significantly stronger and more durable than regular glass.

Customer Reviews
  • Linda Steadman

    They know what they're doing and they are extremely professional. They came on time for both scheduled appointments, they quickly figured out what needed to be done, and when they returned to install the double paned glass, they were fast and clean. I would call them again in an instant.
  • Jean Reif

    Courteous and skilled workers who arrived soon after I received a text message that they were on their way. They determined that my two windows would not lock because the frames had warped. Since they could not repair them, I was not charged for the service call.
