How a glass table top is used?
Glass tabletops are used in a number of ways, but the most accepted one is where they use the glass to protect the surface of a desk, table or a coffee table. When used as a shield on a wood surface, normally a slim glass such as 1/5″ is used. The edges of the glass would normally be refined to smooth them out and avoid the likelihood of injury from the sharp edges. When glass is used on a wooden surface housing there is no need for toughening the glass.
Why glass table top?
- It protects one’s furniture from scratches, nicks and other possible damages
- It refreshes older pieces with a temporary option, as compared to paint or stains
- Glass is beautiful and is an excellent way to add luster to an otherwise dull item.
- It upraises the impact of dressers or wood tables while protecting these investments from sun damage, scratches, glass rings and scuffs.
- It completes a nightstand, table or even a plant stand.
- Restart used glass table inserts with a glass table replacement, outdoor tables are especially vulnerable to weathering and damage.
Glass table tops can also be used in scenarios where the entire body is made out of glass. The legs can also be made of glass, metal, wood or any other material. In these cases, the glass has to be toughened for safety reasons. Thickness should be at least 5/8” and edges have to be refined and possibly angled depending on preference.
