How to Remove Tempered Glass

Don’t settle for a broken view. Whether it’s a shower door or any other type of tempered glass, cracks must be dealt with safely and soon.

Tempered glass is commonly used for shower doors, glass tabletops, glass shelves, car side windows, back glasses, and more. It is a type of safety glass that is made by quickly heating and cooling a piece of annealed glass, or standard glass, uniformly.

Tempered glass is designed to protect you from injury in that when it breaks, it shatters into dull cubes as opposed to shards. But if it gets cracked, such as in an accident, it’s important to safely remove tempered glass to prevent harm.

How to Remove Tempered Glass Around Your Home

Tempered glass is designed to shatter. For that safety reason, tempered glass is often used in swinging glass doors, panes of glass near stairs, and in wet areas like bathroom showers, saunas, and hot tubs.

Follow these instructions to safely remove broken tempered glass from around your home.

  1. Put on work gloves and protective goggles.
  2. Keep children and pets away from the area.
  3. Using caution, unscrew the flashing or plates that attach the tempered glass panel.
  4. Sweep tempered glass into a dust pan or vacuum it up
