Glass furniture: Focus more on safety
Glass materials are ubiquitously applied in housing furniture. They often match with metal, bamboo, wood. Various kinds of modern and up-dated furniture can be made from these materials. In our daily life, we can see a variety of dining and tea tables with table surface made from tempered glass. Since we often put wares on these tables, their quality is very important.
General Technical Specification for Glass being carried out on July 1st gives significant provisions on appearance index, chemical and physical index, safety factors, mechanical properties, hardness index and tempering mark of glass furniture. The new standard strengthens glass products’ corrosion resistance to food, drink and flavors. Also tempering marks are required to put on these products in case of fakes. This standard also gives requirements on property, size, appearance, structural hardness, harmful substance, wooden parts and metal parts.
Glass furniture: Purchasing tips-more than enough
Glass materials often appear as parts of furniture. We can firstly select glass products according to basic view and touch by checking their appearance, glue alignment, glass caulking groove, surface carving of glass accessories. We can see whether they are tightly and firmly aligned. The edge should be smooth without of any defects. Stringy should be clear and standard. Additionally, we can see whether there are marks of tempered glass, “CCC”, since most glass furniture has adopted tempered glass now.
