Safety glass is the industry standard, and one we take very seriously.
What Is Safety Glass for Shelves?
There are two types of safety glass: tempered and laminated. We use tempered glass for our shelves.
Tempered glass comes in a range of thicknesses that are four to five times stronger than untreated glass with the same thickness. If it were to break - say, a ceiling or light fixture fell in or something extreme like that - it will break into small pieces easy to sweep up instead of large, dangerous shards.
Laminated glass is layered with vinyl and typically used in windshields and windows. It adds UV protection against sun damage as well.
Safety Glass is as Attractive as Untreated Glass
Don't think "safety goggles" when you think of safety glass. That's because safety glass is as attractive as untreated glass - just a lot stronger.
Take a look at our glass and brass shelves and you'll see what we mean. In addition to our very pretty floating glass shelves, you'll see double and triple shelves.

Shelves That Fit In Corners
"That's me in the corner."
We've maintained for some time that corners are overlooked and underused. Let's put them in the spotlight. (Apologies to R.E.M.)
Our two and three-tiered corner glass shelves maximize these spaces and create valuable bathroom "real estate."
