Glass issues

The most common glass issue in our practice is the s.c. Nickel Sulphide inclusion . It is a “mysterious” phenomenon, caused by the concentration of some (residue) components of the glass, what can cause extra, hidden internal tension inside the glass, generated by the heat treatment process. It is a rare, hidden factory error, but it is an existing issue unfortunately. In these cases the toughened glass is shattering spontaneously, without any external impact or previous sign. When toughened safety glass is shattering, it is shattering for a million small pieces which small fragments cannot hurt anyone (seriously). However the better solution for this glass safety requirement is the lamination of the toughened glass, named laminated toughened glass. This lamination layer between the glasses hold the shattered glass fragments together. This type of “toughened laminated” glass can be used for any glazing works, frameless structural glazing and balustrade glazing mainly, but it is a basic requirement for other glazing systems as well.
