Repairing Glass Furniture
What happens if glass furniture gets damaged?
The tempering process used to produce safety glass for Futureglass contemporary glass furniture causes the microscopic cracks in the glass to close, making safety glass four to five times stronger than annealed glass. This gives the glass a compression value greater than concrete. If this toughened glass were ever to break, the stored energy is released and the increased bond between the molecules makes the safety glass shatter, forming small particles with dulled edges. This toughening process ensures that glass in Futureglass contemporary glass furniture offer the reassurance of conformance to British Standard BS6206A for maximum safety.
However, if tempered glass is accidentally chipped, it can become unstable so part of BS6206A is a requirement to replace chipped glass as standard. We are the manufacturer of the glass furniture so we can either repair or replace glass tops or other parts that are accidentally damaged in use. This also gives us the opportunity to learn about customers’ experience with our glass furniture so that we can continue to improve our design, manufacturing and quality processes. We can also repair glass furniture made by other manufacturers using the same type of safety glass to get the closest possible match to the original. ****Please contact us for examples if they become relevant****
