Clear Toughened

Clear Toughened

Glasslines has recently acquired our very own toughening machine!We are now able to complete all process in house, from CNC milling to toughening, to double glazing.Toughened glass, also known as tempered glass, is an A Grade safety glass that has been heat strengthened in a furnace heating the glass to 700 degrees Celsius.


The glass is cut to size on our automatic cutting tables, the is moved to the Furnace where it is heated to high temperatures, then moved into the quench, a cooling chamber where the glass is cooled by a series of air nozzles.the combination of the heating then the cooling creates high compression stress in the glass, increasing its thermal and mechanical properties. 
during this process, the visual look of the glass remains unchanged, however the thermal and mechanical properties are increased to make it New Zealand A Grade Safety Glass.
