However, in the case of the tempered glass table, the glass does not break in dangerous sharp jagged pieces. Instead, it breaks into thousands of smaller pieces that cause no more than a small cut or a scratch. All this can be attributed to its manufacturing process.
Compared to normal glass, it is heat treated to increase its strength. As a result it is able to withstand more force and stronger impacts. In addition to this, the microstructure of the glass is changed such that the glass shatters into smaller pieces rather than into few sharp and dangerous pieces when it breaks.
In fact, if you really want to lower your expenses, you might want to ask your furniture store to give you a glass table top, because chances are they do have some in stock. Usually these are sold for cheap, because the store wants to get rid of them. The only thing you need to do is to find some legs and put the pieces together.
In addition to this, the tempered glass table is environmentally friendly and promotes sustainability. All this comes from the fact that the materials used in its production are recyclable. Traditionally, tables were made of wood. After a while, the wood would suffer wear and tear and eventually are discarded. While some wood are recycled, most of them are sent to landfills to be burnt and wasted causing a never ending demand for wood and thus environmental damage.
