The Price Center for Genetic and Translational Medicine and Block Research Pavilion at Albert Einstein College of Medicine is a great example of how a point-supported structural glass podium and vestibule makes a high-performance research laboratory stand out from the crowd. W&W Glass installed the Pilkington Planar™ structural glass systems and Sotawall® unitized curtain wall to meet Payette’s design intent.

Once toughened the glass cannot be cut, drilled, grinded etc. Therefore, the glass must be cut to size and any work must be carried out before toughening.

Toughened glass is mechanically up to 5 times stronger than annealed glass of the same substance. The glass is not any stiffer, therefore, while the glass may be strong enough to withstand the loads, its deflection may need to be considered. Would you like to see how toughened glass was tested for its bending strength? Watch this video showing the laboratory test of toughened glass. It was carried out by our colleague for his master’s degree thesis. Impressive, isn’t it?

Our toughened glass is made in a horizontal toughening process. Computer-controlled furnace allows the selection of appropriate toughening parameters for each type of glass, including the latest generation of low-e coated products. The new generation toughening furnaces allow to maintain the strict values of tolerance and produce high-quality toughened glass.

Pilkington Toughened Safety Glass is manufactured by subjecting final size, edge worked panes of glass to a heating and cooling treatment.

Citadella dello Sport is an outdoor and indoor swimming pool complex in Caldogno, Italy. The functionality, flexibility of use and economy were important aspects for the architect Sergio Novello. Pilkington Suncool™ Clear was chosen for facades to provide high light transmittance and to ensure maximum performance in terms of efficiency.

Toughened glass is also thermally stronger than annealed glass. It can withstand high temperature differences ca. 280°C. You don't have to worry about setting hot things on a toughened glass top.

Thermally toughened glass has a safer breakage behaviour when compared with annealed glass. The fracture characteristics of toughened glass is directly related to the amount of surface compression. In the event of breakage toughened glass fractures into numerous small, blunt-edged pieces. In order to classify a glass as a toughened safety glass, the particle count of test specimen shall not be less than the values given in the product standard.

After heat treatment high compressive stresses are set up at the surfaces with balancing tensile stresses in the centre of toughened glass. The high compressive surface stresses give the Pilkington Toughened Glass its increased strength.

This BBC TV clip featuring James May (Top Gear) is a memorable highlight showing the strength of toughened glass used in Pilkington Planar™ structural glazing system. A Mini Cooper – complete with engine – was dropped on the glass and the glass assembly remained intact. This successful demonstration left Top Gear presenter five pounds out of pocket.
