Full size Sailors Valentine Tables come with 1/4" thick tempered low-iron glass (Starphire Ultra Clear Glass* or equal) as a standard feature. Half size tables come with 1/8" thick window glass (contact us for glass upgrades). The differences in these two types of glass are described below.
(1) The high iron content of 1/8" thick window glass will give a greenish tint to your art work and will only transmit 83% of the light that strikes it. Low-iron glass has about 10% of the iron content of window glass and will transmit about 91% of the light that strikes it. The end result is more clarity without the greenish tint.
(2) 1/4" thick tempered glass is about 32 times stronger than 1/8" thick window glass, so it is much less likely to break.
(3) Window glass breaks into large shards with sharp edges. Tempered glass breaks into lots of small pieces with round edges.
You can safely use our full size tables as functional tables because of the glass we put in them.
