Heat Soak Oven

Vestibulum sagittis, dui nec euismod tincidunt, ex turpis imperdiet lorem

We have recently installed and commissioned a heat soak test oven to further extend our range of in-house products.

We will be heat soaking glass to BS EN 14179 which involves heating the glass up to 290 degrees Celcius at which it is soaked in heat for 2 hours.

The purpose of this is to encourage any glass containing impurities called Nickel Sulphide inclusions to fail whilst in the oven. This controlled failure is obviously far less catastrophic than such an event happening with overhead or barrier glazing in a busy public place.

If you are interested in this added value and added peace of mind contact us for further information.
