Beware of Standard Plate Glass
These are pictures of the standard plate glass that comes with most showcases. Damage like this can be caused by just one blow. By using tempered glass the chance of breakage is less, and if breakage does occur - the size of the broken pieces is reduced to 1/4". The smaller pieces are somewhat less dangerous.   Removing this glass can be a hazardous job. These long pieces are sharp, and should never be handled without proper safety equipment. Smaller pieces are more easily handled by a broom and dust pan.
Tempered is Stronger & Safer


Tempered glass is tough to break
- but if it does -
the pieces are smaller and safer!

To avoid these large shards, order a case that is made with tempered glass. The glass used in our display cases is tempered. These pieces are certified and marked right on the glass.
