We offer high-quality annealed glass to help you complete your project.
Our team at First Class Glass and Overhead Doors has extensive experience in working with glass, and we are familiar with the glass manufacturing process as well. A major concern for glass manufacturers is making sure the glass contains as few internal stresses as possible, as these stresses can cause the glass to break more easily, and the main way to reduce these stresses is a process known as annealing. The annealing process involves cooling the hot glass very slowly, letting it return to room temperature over many hours or even days, as letting it cool down faster would lead to more stresses.
Of course, annealing isn’t the only method of treating glass to prevent it from breaking so easily, and annealed glass isn’t always the best option for every application. However, since annealing is the simplest treatment process, annealed glass is usually more affordable than other types of treated glass, and it is great for any application in which safety is not a concern. If you have questions about which type of glass is best for your needs, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team—we’ll be happy to provide the answers you are looking for, and we can offer informed recommendations as well.
We are proud to serve the Fredericksburg, Texas community, and we want to help you keep the glass structures in your home in excellent condition. If you need a team with the right experience to work with annealed glass, just give us a call.
