Flat glass is extensively used for household appliances, office equipment, and similar applications
Oven doors are made of tempered glass. They are engineered to resist very high temperatures and to avoid cooks from being burnt.
Fridges are equipped with silk-screened, tempered, edged and clipped glass for their shelves, so as to be capable of resisting shocks as well as being spill proof.
Stove tops and control panels are made from drilled, silk-screen printed and tempered glass in order to provide high thermal and mechanical safety as well as to create an aesthetic look.
Glass is an incredible material to build displays and to connect people in a user-friendly and safe way.
Smartphones and tablets
In smartphones and tablets, Glass mainly covers the external casing. Of course, glass is best suited for this kind of products because of its transparency and resistance, but also because it doesn’t attenuate radio signals, which means that internal antennas can be used. It is a very specific type of flat glass that is used to enable touch-screen technologies. In fact, you are touching flat glass probably more often that you ever thought!
Computers and digital displays
Anti-reflective glass is used to reduce the glare that reflects off televisions, computer screens, glass cases and other electronic displays. In addition, self cleaning glass can be used for outdoor digital signage.
Photocopiers, scanners, and fax machines all use highly transparent glass sheets to support document imaging.
