How is safety glass made?
RAVAK manufactures shower enclosures, shower doors, and bathtub screens from tempered safety glass. The glass is first heated to a temperature of 600°C and then cooled with compressed air. The cooling varies according to the thickness, because the thinner the glass, the more intensively it must be cooled.
The tempering technology increases the resistance and such glass is subsequently up to 5 times more flexible in bending, which also increases the resistance to impacts. Sudden changes in temperature do not affect this.
Safety even in extreme situations
We monitor and test the production to ensure that the factory does not release insufficiently tempered or overly hardened glass. Such a product might not even withstand transport, let alone installation.
Quality glass will not endanger you even in an unpredictable situation. It can withstand enormous loads and if it were to break, it would break into small pieces that are not health-threatening. It would cause at most minor abrasions.
Why choose a glass shower enclosure?
You will recognize the main advantage every time you enter the bathroom. A transparent glass shower visually enlarges the space. Both from the outside and from the inside. So you won't feel cramped in the bathroom or in the shower.
Glass shower enclosures are beautiful to look at and feel luxurious - even to the touch. Unlike cheap fillings made of artificial material, they are more solid. The quality of the glass is crucial here. It ensures that the shower enclosure will last for the next decades.
Is transparent filling demanding to maintain?
Every water has a different hardness. Its composition contains various amounts of minerals, which cause deposits and limescale. Here comes another RAVAK technology to the rescue.
We treat all glasses with the patented RAVAK AntiCalc® technology. It creates a water-repellent layer on the surface and protects against limescale and deposits. However, it is important to regularly renew this layer. Read the article on how to care for RAVAK glass.
