What is Heat Soaked Safety Glass?     
It's a quality testing process that is aimed at detecting any impurities within the glass such as Nickle Sulphide Inclusions (NiS). The glass is reheated and then slowly cooled. Doing this accelerates the expansion of any inclusions, and generally causes the glass to fail immediately. This reduces the possibility of spontaneous breakage after installation.

Because this process is additional, Heat Soaked Safety Glass is more expensive to purchase. But then the  extra cost can be justified when you consider replacement costs and all the other additional charges if spontaneous breakage does occur.  We recommend Heat Soaked Safety Glass on all projects as we believe the benefits of it far outweigh the costs.
