How Much Weight Can a Tempered Glass Coffee Table Hold?
Tempered glass coffee tables offer a sophisticated and modern style for your home. But, these beautiful tables don’t just look good, they are also very durable. Here we look at how much weight a tempered glass coffee table can hold.
Strength of Tempered Glass
Tempered glass is made by heating regular glass to a very high temperature. The heat causes the outer layers of glass to soften and then suddenly cool, or “quench”. This process makes the glass much stronger and less likely to shatter than regular glass.
How Much Weight Can a Tempered Glass Coffee Table Support?
Typically, a tempered glass coffee table can safely support an evenly distributed weight of up to 60 lbs (27 kg). That is quite a lot of weight and should be enough to support even the heaviest of items.
What Can You Put On a Tempered Glass Coffee Table?
You can safely put items of any weight on a tempered glass coffee table, as long as the total weight added on the table does not exceed the maximum weight limit. Here are some ideas of items you can safely place on a tempered glass coffee table:
- Books and Magazines
- Remote Controls
- Lamp Shades
- Fresh Flowers
- Photo Frames
- Ornaments and Vases
- Food and Drink Trays
- TV Guide
Remember, if the total combined weight of the items on the table exceeds 60 lbs (27 kg), then it is not safe to place them on the tempered glass table. In some cases, the maximum weight limit may be different depending on the manufacturer.
Tempered glass coffee tables are an excellent choice for any home, offering stylish modern looks, a sleek design and high durability. They are able to support an even weight of up to 60 lbs (27 kg) without any problem. So, whether you want to place books and magazines, food and drink trays, lamp shades or ornaments, a tempered glass coffee table has you covered.
