When glass is flawlessly clean it allows you to enjoy an unmatched clarity within your surrounds. These tips invite you to create a seamless integration between your humble abode and the beauty in nature that surrounds you.
11. Glass Storage
Do not store or place other materials in contact with glass. This can damage the glass or create a heat trap leading to thermal breakage.
12. Reflective Glass
Extra care is necessary where high performance reflective glass is installed. The coated surface can be susceptible to stains and scratches. Temporary screens should be installed if welding, sandblasting, floor sanding, cutting or other DIY or construction practices take place near the glass. Glass installations which are adjacent to concrete (e.g. concrete slab floors) also require extra care and cleaning due to the abrasive nature of concrete dust.
13. Toughened Glass
The cleaning of toughened glass requires special care. The glass surface opposite the standards compliance stamp may, as a consequence of the manufacturing process, have ‘pickup’ on the surface. ‘Pickup’ is a deposit of very small particles of glass which are fused to the glass surface. A cleaning method which does not dislodge these particles should be employed otherwise scratching of the glass surface may result. Blades or scrapers have been known to dislodge ‘pickup’ from the glass surface. A soft cloth, which will not dislodge ‘pickup’ should be used.
