Glass top tables, shower doors, glass entertainment centers, patio furniture and low un-filmed windows all pose serious threats to young children. Injuries are typically caused when children jump, sit or fall onto or into annealed or ordinary glass. This type of glass will break into jagged shards of glass that can cause severe lacerations, leaving disfiguring scars and damaging tendons and nerves. "Huge shards of glass are basically like knives. If they sever an artery, they can cause uncontrolled bleeding, and the injury can be fatal," says Amir Kimia, MD, of the Division of Emergency Medicine at Children's Hospital in Boston.
Glass Top Tables Pose Serious Dangers
To date, with the exception of certain newer constructed doors and sliders, there are no standards for safety (tempered) glass in the home. With so many houses built prior to existing glass safety codes, a vast amount of homeowners assume they have tempered doors when in fact they do not. An accident waiting to happen?

We are trained to identify glass that needs to be made safe and glass that meets the required standard.
