Can toughened glass break?

Breakages typically occur as a result of damage or stress to the glass edge or surface, usually during handling or installation. Damage or stress can weaken the glass that could then manifest as a breakage at a later point in time.

In the unlikely event of a breakage, toughened glass is engineered and designed to break completely and into small fragments, which are less likely to cause injury. It does not break into sharp shards like standard window glass.

Everything you need to know about toughened glass can be found on this article via our DIY Hub.
