Terms and applications for using laminated glass in furniture
Glass is often used to enhance the beauty and style of furniture. It allows lighting to penetrate into the opening, provide an enhanced view of displayed objects or as a protective layer on continuously backed surfaces such as tables or as the primary loading surface in horizontal applications. Typical applications include table tops and table bases, cabinetry, and shelving. Glass can break, even if it is rated as a safety glazing and care should be taken to minimize glass- related injuries.
