Design & Glazing Notes
Thermal Breakage – the thicker the tinted glass, the darker the appearance and colour becomes. As the thickness increases, the glass absorbs more heat and as a result can be prone to thermal breakage if glazed in annealed float. Toughening or heat strengthening will prevent these breakages.
Glass edges – before glazing, annealed float glass edges must be ’good’ straight and clean cut with minimal defects. Under no circumstances should glass be glazed with damaged edges.
