4mm clear glass is the most common glazing found everywhere in steel systems – all iSteel products are offered as standard with 4mm Safety Toughened Glass. It’s used because it’s cost effective, it’s not too bad for heat and sound insulation, and it’s light enough that the steel system hinges can carry its weight with ease allowing a light and easy travel of the steel doors. In terms of heat/sound insulation it offers value for money on a budget.
4mm toughened glass is one of the best glazing options for single glazed steel systems, it offers an acceptable level of security and safety within your home. The cost is low and the glass is strong enough to withstand a face on impact typical to the domestic environment.
