Glass Information

Glass information

Sheet glass is commonly supplied in a number different glass types. The different glass types do require different methods of mounting. However, all types of glass can be mounted with MFH Hinges.

Single layer or laminated toughened/tempered glass can be mounted with countersunk fittings, clamping plates as well as bonded fittings. Toughened/tempered glass is up to five times stronger than float/ annealed glass of the same thickness. Toughened/tempered glass can be laminated, whereby two sheets are bonded by a plastic or resin interlayer.

Laminated float/annealed glass cannot be mounted with screw fixings of any type such as countersunk fittings or clamping plates. Laminated float annealed glass uses two sheets that are bonded by a plastic or resin interlayer. The only mounting method permissible for laminated float glass is by bonding the panel to a special attachment plate (See Door Mounting Options). Another mounting option is to bond the panel into a channel extrusion or profile and attach the relevant mechanism to the metal profile.
