Toughening

​Uncoated glass
Minimum thickness: 4mm

(depending on coating)

Overall size of panel determines thickness able to be toughened. I.e. over a certain square meterage may require an upgrade to the next thickness.

Toughened holes & cut outs
Available across all glass thicknesses greater than 10mm requires a minimum Flat Grind finish

Distance between edge of glass and edge of cut-out must be at least four times the glass thickness

Toughened glass minimum charge = 0.3m2
