Childproof Your Home for Summer

Keeping your home safe and healthy for your kids should be one of your top priorities - especially since school is out for the summer and your kids are going to be around the house all day long. If you are looking for ways to improve your home's child safety, then we recommend using one of our many safety glass products. At Glass Doctor® of Newmarket, we offer our customers the option of applying Clear Choice™ protectant in addition to using tempered glass replacements for your glass windows, doors, furniture and decor.

Create a Healthy Environment With Clear Choice

Maintaining a healthy environment will help keep your children healthy and happy. Our Clear Choice™ glass treatment can be applied to every surface of your bathroom and kitchen, including countertops, toilets, sinks, windows, glass shower enclosures and more. By applying Clear Choice, you'll make your bathroom and kitchen surfaces more resistant to water and oils, which makes them easier to keep clean.

A single application of Clear Choice glass treatment will last upwards of five years and will help to protect against hard water, mineral deposits, weathering and environmental pollutants. Environmental pollutants such as mold and mildew can be have a particularly negative impact on the health of your children, especially if they suffer from allergies or respiratory issues.

Create a Safer Environment With Tempered Glass

If you need replacement glass for your windows, doors or glass decor, we recommend using tempered glass. Tempered glass will create a safer environment for your children. Tempered glass is produced using a very unique process. It is heated to roughly 1100 degrees in a tempering furnace before being quickly cooled immediately afterwards using room temperature air. This causes the outer layer of glass to strengthen so that it can better withstand impact without breaking.

When tempered glass does break, it will break into small chunks instead of sharp pieces. If any of the glass in your home breaks - whether it's due to the fault of your children or not - it won't pose the same risk of injury as traditional glass would. In fact, according to the Consumers Union, non-tempered glass decor is responsible for 20,000 injuries every year. This could be significantly reduced with the use of tempered glass.

Our glass specialists can custom cut tempered glass for a variety of different purposes, including:

  • Glass coffee tables
  • Glass dining tables
  • Glass shelving
  • Glass cabinets
  • Glass doors
