The concept of window shopping is possibly as old as the commercialization of the retail sector. Large windows and clear facades not only offer retailers a chance to attract customers through their displays, but also add to the architecture and the aesthetics of the shop. Apart from its obvious use in exterior, glass can also be used for table tops, counters, displays, shelves, and doors inside the commercial space in order to impart it a very luxurious and inviting look.
That being said, retailers are often apprehensive of using glass in architecture, mostly because it is falsely believed that glass is brittle and doesn’t offer enough protection. While this could have been true decades ago, modern methods of glass manufacturing have seen the invention of glass types such as toughened glass which is durable, impact resistant and 4 to 5 times stronger than ordinary glass. It can also be modified to keep the external noise away and keep the interiors cool.
Toughened or tempered glass is made by heating regular glass to 600 degree C and cooling it quickly thereafter. This process of tempering toughens the glass by several times. If this glass is broken, it disintegrates into tiny pebble-shaped granules that are not injurious to bystanders.
