With frameless assemblies made from toughened glass architects, interior decorators, designers and builders can now use innovative designs to escape the visual intrusion of conventional framed glazing. For the innovative architects who are in constant search for light and space, clean classic lines and contemporary functionally, this is the answer. For more decorative effect and safety, toughened glass in a wide range of tints is available to suite every architectural need. Tempered reflective glasses are available on various shades like bronze, grey, blue, green, clear, pink, gold etc. These are a perfect mix of security, aesthetics and due to their heat reflective property they save a lot of money by way of cutting the power charges for air conditioning a building.

Toughened glass is used primarily because of its safety features. A fully tempered glass is used in most modern glass facade, where glass strength is required. A fully tempered glass is recommended for windows that are on high floors or skylights where people are required to stand on top for cleaning. Also areas where risk of thermal breakage or impact breakage is high, fully tempered glass should be used so as to avoid risk of injury. Glass strength is also required in point fixed glazing, bolted and patch fittings.

Toughened glass is used wherever strength is required and regular annealed glass will not be sufficient, like in high traffic uses like entrances, in conditions where high wind loads by the surface, etc. Glass facades, sliding doors, building entrances and bath and shower enclosures are the most common uses. Fire knock-out panels, fireplace enclosure and kitchen objects like vegetable chopping board and cooking pot lids are other uses.

Insulated glass is commonly used in offices and institutions. Often, insulating glass is used on the surfaces that take the maximum direct sunlight. Insulated glass is mandated in many countries for residential buildings in order to save on heating costs in the cold weather.
