Safety Glass

It may seem like an oxymoron to put safety and glass together as if glass can be safe, but in reality, there are forms of glass that are “safer” than others. In the glass world, two types of glass can be considered “safe,” and they are tempered glass and laminated glass. Do you know the difference between the two? No, well, let’s examine the difference.

Tempered Glass
Tempered glass is about four times stronger than regular glass or annealed glass. The tempering process makes the glass better able to resist the forces caused by heat, wind, and impact. When tempered glass breaks, it shatters into small cubes, reducing the likelihood of serious injury on impact, thus it qualifies as a safety glass material. Tempered glass is used in automotive glass, monitor screens, constructions—frameless glass doors, sliding glass doors, glass enclosures, stair rails, and home appliances.

Laminated Glass
Sometimes referred to as “lami,” is made by placing a layer of PVB (polyvinyl butyral) between two or more layers of glass and then fusing them together under heat and pressure. The thickness of lami qualifies it as safety glass, and when it breaks, the pieces adhere to the PVB and do not fly or fall. Laminated glass is used for glass doors, table tops, cabinet glass, storefronts, shelving, mirrors, and more.

Both of these glass types are versatile and because they are “safe,” you can rest assured that people won’t get hurt or injured if the glass is     broken or damaged. If you need tempered or laminated glass, for your next build, we have it in stock at AGI, so just give us a call.

Making a Connection

AGI conducted an information session with the management team of MEDCO Construction in Dallas, Texas.  This informal “get-to-know” us meeting is always a favorite for the AGI team. We love introducing our products and services to companies such as MEDCO Construction, and in return, we get to learn more about their company and what we can do to help them grow their business. In this meeting, our Dallas sales team, which included Kerry Pollard, Duayne Price, and Jeff Host, shared information about AGI and provided breakfast for the MEDCO Construction team. As you know, everything is better with food.

Meetings such as this are where strong business relationships are forged because you just can’t beat the connections that can be made in a face-to-face meeting. This type of open and honest discussion, helps each party involved come to a “meeting of the minds” so to speak so that a relationship between the two businesses will not only develop, and grow but thrive.

Arrow Glass Industries, a.k.a. AGI lives by its motto of being “the fastest custom glass in the industry…period”. Our top three goals are to be fast, cost-effective, and provide our customers with quality products and services.

If your company is looking for a glass fabrication company, with a long and reputable history, look no further than AGI. With six locations in Texas, we can service just about any place in Texas, just give the office nearest you a call so we can “make a connection” with you and your team.
