Safety

Glass is a very resistant material. And contrary to common belief, it will resist to very hard hits. Glass will withstand the test of time like no other material.

Thickness
When glass thickness exceeds 3/4", it becomes extremely solid. Anything above 1.5" can be consider as any stone!

Tempering
Most of our textures can be tempered if they do not exceed 3/4" (19mm) in thickness. Tempering adds even more resistance to glass' natural characteristics.

Lamination/Film
Lamination is another important safety device that can be applied to most of our products.

Testing
We can provide testing for a wide range of applications (stress / antiskid / strength) on demand.

Word of caution
We highly recommend that you have your countertop installed by a glass-competent professional. These people are trained and have specific experience manipulating heavy glass products.

Care & Maintenance

Durability
1 1/2-inch thick glass is very strong and durable. Glass is pure and is non-porous so it will not be affected by any chemicals.

Heat resistant
It is not recommended to put hot pots on glass counters. Use a trivet whenever possible.

Although glass can resist very high temperatures, breakage could still occur under certain circumstances (near edges or sharp corners, for example). We do not offer a guarantee against breakage due to thermal shock. Hence, we recommend not putting extremely hot pots directly on your glass countertop.

Cleaning

Any window cleaning or water/vinegar solution will ensure that your countertop stays new for years to come!
