Several reports have been recorded, of glasses from windows in high rise buildings breaking unexpectedly and falling from such heights. These reports have surfaced from different places and are extremely dangerous.
This has caused builders and glaziers to reconsider the type of glass to use to ensure safety. Due to this, the term "safety glazing" has been introduced. Safety glazing refers to any glass that has been engineered to minimise the potential for injury, and they are required for glass doors, skylights, shower doors or even car windshields.
There are a wide variety of glazing companies in London. These glazing companies employ the three different types of safety glazing, the most common being tempered glass. This is safest because when it breaks; it shatters into tiny pieces and cannot cause serious injury. This is because the glass is heated and cooled rapidly. Other types of safety glazing are laminating and heat-strengthening, with the latter not being technically safe because it produces long shards when broken, and this can cause serious injuries.

Heat-soaking has been considered a possible solution to spontaneous breakage. It involves heat soaking tempered glass in temperature of about 288°C to 316°C for about 2 -4 hours.
However, this is not a guaranteed solution as there are risks involved like the reduction of the glass surface compression. The safest solution has been discovered as use of laminated tempered glass or heat-strengthened glass.
