Because of the way it is manufactured, single pane toughened safety glass from Arnold Glas has better flexural strength and is more shock, impact and temperature-resistant than float glass. In the event of breakage, it shatters into small blunt-edged pieces and therefore is less of an injury risk. It is therefore particularly suitable when a higher degree of safety is needed, e.g. glass doors, shower cabinets, chiller counters, all-glass enclosures, sports facilities and facade glazing.
