SAFETY GLASS

Due to current legislation and Australian standards most glass in common areas where a person can access should be Grade A safety glass.

Grade A safety glass can be either toughened or laminated glass, though depending on the glass application this will determine which glass type is best used.

Toughened Glass Options

TOUGHENED SAFETY GLASS can be used in most applications where glass does not have a frame around it and it has exposed edges.

Doors

In most applications where glass is used in a door, within 1 metre of a door OR anywhere where the glass is below 1 metre from where a person can stand the glass MUST be Grade A safety glass. ONLY toughened glass and laminated glass are classified as Grade A safety glass. Depending on the application one type may be better suited than the other.

Table Tops

When a glass table is free standing and only supported on points with legs or a surround frame, toughened glass is highly recommended.  If the glass is there purely to protect the table below and has full support the table can be manufactured by just using float glass without going through the toughening process.

Shower Screens, Balustrades and Pool Fences

All frameless glass products must be toughened, recommended at minimum 10mm.

Splashbacks

Due to the heat elements from cooktops and other kitchen appliances, splashbacks must be TOUGHENED Grade A safety glass.  Commonly 6mm in the following options: Clear Float, Clear Float Colourback, Starphire, Starphire Colourback and Mirastar.
