Wahoo Rail Glass Panel Railing made its debut at The 2014 International Builder Show and one of the frequently asked questions Wahoo Decks received about the glass panels was, “Will it break easily?”Wahoo Rail Glass Panel Railing
Not only will the glass panels not break easily but they’re actually a safer option when it comes to putting glass panels on your railing. To begin with, the glass panels are made using tempered glass. Tempered glass, or toughened glass as some people call it, is a type of safety glass. Processing by controlled thermal or chemical treatments increases its strength compared to normal glass.
That means the tempered glass will not break easily and in the unlikely case that it does break, it breaks into tiny pieces. Therefore, tempered glass’ safety qualities make it perfect for use in car windows, shower windows, and quite often in architectural glass doors and tables. Because of these safety qualities, tempered glass was the perfect solution for Wahoo Rail Glass Panel Railing.
