The Barcelona Table and the Tempered Glass
When it comes to glass tables, like the Barcelona Table, one recurrent worry has to do with security ad safety. The risk of breaking is a sign of warning, to consider tables of other materials and models. So, what is the best use we can do of our Barcelona Table? Is it safe for the family?
The Barcelona Table’s tempered glass
The Barcelona Table features a visual manifestation of Mies’ signature stylized cross form base made from hand-polished #304 stainless steel flat stock that is .6 inches (15mm) thick by 1.25 inches wide, taken from a single piece for additional durability. The glass top is a solid piece of tempered glass 3/4″ thick with a polished 1/8″ beveled edge that is easy to clean, wipe only. The glass is held in place on the frame by 4 clear rubber bumpers that support it.
As we can see the Barcelona Table has a top of Tempered Glass. The Tempered glass, differently than standard glass cools very slowly in its process of manufacturing. This makes the tempered glass four times stronger than regular or standard glass. That makes the Barcelona Table a great alternative not only in beauty and design but in safety and relax for you and your family.
