Tempered glass tops in clear, frosted and black or white lacquered finishes. Thickness from 3mm to 15mm Available in different shapes and sizes.
Glass tabletops are used in a number of different ways, but the most popular is to use the glass to protect the surface of a table, desk, coffee table or other furniture. When used as a cover on a wood surface, you can use a thinner glass such as 1/4″. The edges of the glass are normally polished to smooth them out and avoid the possibility of injury from the sharp edges. When glass is used as a wood surface cover there is no need for tempering the glass.
Checklist for when glass sits directly on the surface of furniture:
Glass table tops can also be used in situations where the entire surface is made out of glass and the glass sets on a pedestal. The support can be made of glass, wood, metal, or any other material. In these instances, the glass has to be tempered for safety reasons. Thickness should be at least 3/8” and edges have to be flat polished and possibly beveled, depending on preference.
