For a safe constructive use of curved glass in a smooth interior design
Tempered or toughened safety glass has undergone a special heat treatment process. This treatment provides a significantly increased resistance to mechanical and thermal stress than conventional annealed glass.
|If the glass breaks, it fragments safely into small pieces with dulled edges.|

Restrictions may apply in case of strongly structured cast glass.
Due to the multitude of possible geometries and the different structural changes resulting from it, there are no generally approved superstructures with regard to sound insulation and safety as there are for planar glass.
As a rule the approved features of planar glass which was manufactured with the same process and consists of the same components are taken as basis.
The manufacturer points out that the curved unit has not been subject to inspection. In practice this is sufficient for constructors and approval agencies.
- Elevator construction – fall safe glazing in the traffic area
- Overhead glazing
In general it has to be expected that the resistance and safety features of curved glass are better than those of comparable planar glass. The resistance increases as the radius is smaller.

1Notice: limits of size, dimensions, possible glass thickness and bending angles are determined according to individual arrangement and thorough technical examination. Restrictions in the form of shape must be expected. Tolerances according guidelines for thermally-curved glass in the building industry from Bundesverband Flachglas.
