Tempered safety glass

The brittle nature of tempered glass causes it to shatter into small oval-shaped pebbles when broken. This eliminates the danger of sharp edges. Due to this property — along with its strength — tempered glass is often referred to as ‘safety glass.
How do you calculate the weight of a glass panel?

Answer:
multiply 1.7 pounds for every 1/8" of a square foot of glass.
For instance a 3/8" panel of glass that is 3' x 6' would be 1.7 x 3 (from 3/8") x 3 x 6 = 91.8 pounds. polished plate glass 1/4" is 3.28 lbs per sq ft and polished plate glass 1/2" is 6.56 lbs per square foot. "Double strength 1/8" glass is 1.6 lbs per sq ft.


WEIGHTS:
Glass Weight per Square Foot
1/8"=1.64 lbs.sq.ft.
3/16"=2.45 lbs.sq.ft.
1/4"=3.27 lbs.sq.ft.
3/8"=4.91 lbs.sq.ft.
1/2"=6.54 lbs.sq.ft.
3/4"=9.84 lbs.sq.ft.
1"=13.11 lbs.sq.ft.

Laminating two pieces of glass with a thermoplastic interlayer began as a safety measure. Adding interesting decorative layers to the lamination turns laminated glass into a true art form.
Giovani Glass & Mirror offers a variety of different decorative layers. Each offers a unique texture and translucence to transform a space. In addition to our standard interlayers below, we can use a variety of custom-printed or organic materials. Contact us to get creative!



Glass Types

You can laminate nearly any type of glass we carry, including clear float glass, Low-Iron float glass which eliminates the green tint of standard glass, mirrored glass, pattern glass, cast glass, sandblasted, etch design or carved glass, back-painted or silkscreened glass.
We've laminated glass that’s been treated to resemble stone or marble, or to be magnetic.
Recommended glass thickness:

1/4" is the preferred thickness. 3/8" or 1/2"can be used for effect but make sure that the furniture can carry the weight.

Recommended edge: flat polish is the preferred edge work. However, pencil polish or beveled polish can be used to give accent or a dramatic effect.

Glass Strength: Annealed glass is sufficient to protect the table but glass can always be tempered for added safety, especially if there are younger kids in the house.
