Tempered glass is one of the world’s newest architectural materials.
Invented In the early 20th Century by Rudolf Seiden, it`s far stronger than conventional glass. However, up until the 1980’s, frameless glass was used exclusively in commercial contexts. Thankfully, stainless steel railing systems today can be found in company headquarters, offices, and a wide variety of Toronto residences.
