Heat-strengthened glass: in a unique size
Good things now also come in large size: sedak heat-strengthened glass in pane sizes of up to 3.2m x 16m (10ft 6in x 52ft. 5.9in) Apart from sedak, no other manufacturer offers these maixformats in comparable quality.
Heat-strengthened glass has a higher flexural strength and better thermal shock resistance than normal float glass. Further processing into laminated safety glass results in a failure behavior that is optimized for safety. This is primarily important wherever heat-strengthened glass is used for overhead glazing. In the event of breakage, heat-strengthened glass forms large fragments that in most instances are held in place by the interlayer so they cannot drop onto persons or items below.
