The art of treating glass is part of the long history of the company in Brianza.

 

This reality began in 1907 thanks to Giuseppe Vismara's work as a glass and mirror representative and continued with Elia Vismara who, in 1947, became a producer, laying the foundations of a reality as solid and brilliant as its glasses.

 

THE QUALITIES OF TEMPERED GLASS

Vismaravetro's ability to process this incredible raw material is due to this great tradition and very long experience: it is in fact one of the few companies in its sector that has been able to internalize some very delicate processes of its shower enclosures.

 

Specifically, we are talking about glass tempering, a technique that requires sophisticated machinery and highly trained personnel.

Tempered glass is much more resistant and extremely safer; to obtain this, the slab is subjected to a thermal shock: a first heating cycle brings it to a temperature of almost 700 degrees centigrade and a subsequent cooling cycle with jets of air drastically lowers the temperature. This notable overhang strengthens it and elevates its technical qualities.


THE SAFETY OF TEMPERED GLASS

Once tempered, the sheet acquires great structural resistance which in itself represents a guarantee of solidity, but this is not the reason why tempered glass has earned the nickname of safety sheet. It is so defined because, if it were to break, it would not produce sharp and dangerous splinters of glass, but would be reduced to small and harmless fragments. A certainty that Vismaravetro has been able to certify according to current regulations.
