Tempered glass is the regular glass that is heat treated in order to increase its strength, increase thermal shock, as well as prevent any personal injury just by changing breakage pattern. The tempered glass can be used in the fireplace doors on the masonry or pre-fabricated fireplaces well equipped with the grate to hold the burning wood. This Glass is used in many other applications where the heat, safety and mechanical strength are the factors. Suppose you have the wood stove and insert doors, then this glass won’t work. Tempered glass is used in the gas inserts and direct vent, if breakage pattern is the small bits and not big shards.

All About Tempered Glass

Breakage pattern of the tempered glass is different from the regular glass. The regular glass breaks in long splinters. The tempered glass may fragment in small bits, and entire glass may fragment (most of time). Many regular fireplace doors make use of tempered material for the heat resistance. There must be 4 inches between front of grate and glass. The tempered glass has thermal shock rating 400 degrees and may break when exposed to the direct contact with the flame.
