Types of Glass Table Tops
Two main types of glass table tops are found on the Cape Town South Africa: Annealed and Tempered. Annealed or regular glass table tops are the type associated with the cons listed above. This type of table top is made from a thinner type sheet of glass and will create splinters and sharp edges when broken. This may cause serious injury.
Tempered glass table tops are the preferred choice. This type of glass has gone through a process, which provides a stronger choice with more durability. When a tempered glass top breaks, it breaks into millions of small pieces reducing the risk of injury. There won't be any large, jagged shards as with an annealed glass table top. A tempered table top will also withstand more abuse in a high traffic area.
