Shower Room Glass Thickness Standard
1. Glass thickness of shower room
Regarding shower room glass, the most common thicknesses are 6mm, 8mm and 10mm. When choosing a shower room, in order to ensure the safety of consumers, complete tempered glass must be strictly used, and the specific thickness of the glass can be detected using Linshang glass thickness gauge. Compared with ordinary glass of the same thickness, tempered glass has 3 to 5 times higher impact resistance.
In fact, the tempered glass used in the shower room is usually between 6-8mm. In general, approximately 4mm of tempered glass is sufficient to withstand damage under normal conditions. Thick glass is not necessary. On the contrary, if the glass is too thick, it will cause some inconvenience to transportation and installation due to its own weight. At present, the tempered glass thickness in most markets is between 6mm and 8mm. On the contrary, in order to attract customers, some inferior glass is thicker. At present, the popular shower rooms on the market are divided into two types: half-pack and frameless. The semi-package type refers to the overall frame of the shower room is made of aluminum alloy or plastic steel and the main body is composed of tempered glass; while the frameless shower room means that only the base and internal motherboard are made of acrylic or other, the main part of the shower room is made of tempered glass, the tempered glass thicknes can be measured quickly and accurately with Linshang glass thickness gauge LS201.
The products on the market are semi-arc and linear. The glass thickness is related to the shape of the shower room. For example, the arc has modeling requirements for glass, usually 6mm is suitable, too thick is not suitable for making shapes. Similarly, if you choose a linear shower screen, you can choose 8mm or 10mm, but it needs to be reminded that as the glass thickness increases, the overall weight will increase accordingly, which will make the quality requirements of related hardware higher. But if you buy 8 ~ 10mm thick glass, we need better pulleys. When choosing shower room glass, in order to ensure the safety of consumers, all tempered glass must be strictly selected. Compared with ordinary glass of the same thickness, tempered glass has 3 to 5 times higher impact resistance. The proportion of self-detonation is very small, but it is not directly related to the glass thickness and the thicker the better.
2. Shower room glass thickness detection
As mentioned above, most of the shower room glass will use tempered glass, which can be detected by Linshang glass thickness gauge LS201. This digital glass thickness gauge LS201 uses the optical reflection principle on one side of the glass. The thickness of the glass and air layer can be measured on the surface and the thickness of double glazing, triple glazing can all be tested. Using liquid crystal display, the operation is very simple, the measurement accuracy is up to ± 0.1mm. Whether it is the quality control of glass products, or the acceptance of the installed curtain wall glass project, it can easily deal with the problem. It has been widely used in major glass manufacturers in the industry (such as CSG and Fuyao Glass), engineering testing units, provincial architectural science design and research institutes and building material testing units.
The shower room is safe, but if the shower room uses an unqualified glass screen, it may burst and cause a safety hazard for personal injury. Therefore, when buying shower glass, consumers should choose a shower room with a steel explosion-proof membrane. But at the same time, it is recommended to use Linshang glass thickness gauge LS201 to detect the quality and glass thickness.
