Toughened Glass

We produce our own branded Chough Tough™ toughened glass at our sister company, toughening locations, situated in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset.

Toughened glass is a safety glass with increased strength both physically and thermally. Glass that has been toughened is 4 to 5 times stronger than non-toughened float or annealed glass.

Toughened glass is produced by heating it in specialist toughening ovens before it is cooled in a control environment. It can withstand greater temperatures, impact and stress than untreated float glass.

All of our standard toughened glass is stamped EN 12150 and our toughened glass sealed units EN1279 compliant. We can toughen glass from 4mm up to 19mm thickness and have the capability to produce toughened glass up to 2800 mm x 4200 mm.

Toughened glass is used in a variety of installations  such as doors, lower level windows glass, stairs or balcony balustrading, table tops or anywhere there is a risk of serious injury. Our state-of-the-art processing plants ensures all of our products are produced with maximum strength.
