Given the specific technics used for getting a tempered glass, every manufacture changes needed (holes, edges, etc) should be applied before the tempering process. The tempered glass could be laminated or being included in double glazing windows. Due to the mix of improved attributes such as safety and resistance, the tempered glasses is being recognized as a powerful material to be used as a structural element in construction.

The colorless, extra-clear or frosted tempered glasses are the most used. However, the tempering process could be applied to any other type glass, namely the float or patterned glass.
