Toughened glass panels – The benefits:

Glass is one of the most versatile building materials and a great choice for architecture and interior design applications.

There are several advantages to using toughened glass, one key benefit is its safety features.

It is up to five times as strong as ordinary glass and can withstand surface compression of at least 10,000lbs per square inch (10,000psi). This means that it would need to be hit much harder in order to break and if it does break it will crumble into small fragments, rather than into possibly dangerous sharp jagged shards. It is easier and safer to clean up if it breaks and also more resistant to thermal breakage.

Architecture and interior design applications:

Mykon’s toughened glass panels are all manufactured with our signature aluminium honeycomb core bonded in between two toughened glass skins. Our striking panels are suitable for a variety of architecture and interior design applications including:

1. Partitions

Mykon’s toughened glass panels are perfect for office partitions. The panels are not only visually and aesthetically pleasing but also a great alternative to comparable glass products, ensuring privacy while producing an area full of natural daylight. All panels manufactured by Mykon are bespoke and made-to-order and are easily integrated to create an environment filled with light.

2. Doors

Individual panels can be tailor made to fit existing door systems or produced as a standard hinged door complete with fixtures. Our panels can also help boost the green credentials of a property or building when used as a ‘draught door’ or inner door by retaining heat when the front door is open, without blocking light.

3. Flooring

Mykon architectural flooring panels are scratch resistant, easy to clean and highly resistant to deflection. Surfaces can be either sandblasted or made non-slip for safety. Additional underlighting or backlighting can also be applied.

4. Walkways & Staircases

When toughened glass panels are used for applications such as landings, mezzanines or staircases, they can open up previously dark spaces beneath them and reduce the need for electric lighting. Our panels can be manufactured to fit into any floor framework or staircase system resulting in a truly flexible design.
