A Current Affair article tonight on exploding glass... view here...

It certainly is an issue for both industry and consumers. As a producer of toughened safety glass we know very well the stringent testing and standards that we have to adhere are not the same in overseas countries. This market is certainly being driven by consumer demand for low cost glass products which is now affecting the quality of product coming into the country. I find it unbelievable that DIY frameless products are allowed to be installed by the general public with no experience. Our product is extremely volatile until it is permanently installed using the correct methods to Australia Standards by acreditted companies and qualified glaziers. Just stay safe when you consider installing glass off your own back. It can be extremely dangerous if handled incorrectly.
