National Glass Program

National Glass Program

Our top-of-the-line Italian made specialty glass provides a gorgeous look while providing the safety and durability of tempered glass, which in the event it is broken will crumble into small fragments instead of sharp, hazardous pieces. Tempered glass is normal glass that has been through a process of extreme heat and rapid cooling which changes the break pattern, making it stronger than normal glass. This property can reduce the risk of injury and damage if the glass happens to break during or after installation and is why tempered glass is often called safety glass.

Glass Inserts offered through this program are used in our Aluminum Frame Doors but can also be ordered for use in Wood, MDF, and Deco-form glass and french lite doors.

We offer 8 glass insert options that due to the tempering process are more durable than standard glass.

Safety Glass

Our top-of-the-line specialty glass provides a gorgeous look while providing the safety and durability of tempered glass, which in the event it is broken will crumble into small fragments instead of large hazardous pieces. Tempered glass is normal glass that has been through a process of extreme heat and rapid cooling which makes it stronger than normal glass. Through this process the break pattern of the glass changes from large sharp pieces to finger sized pieces. This property is often why tempered glass is called safety glass.
