Tempered Glass Strength

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I want to put a Monitor with a flat wide stand on top of my View 71 Tempered glass. It weights about 5.5kg. I cant find any info on how much weight those 5mm glass can take. The glass is supported by 4 screw points. Are all tempered glass equal? Does anyone know?

Do you know what the make of the stand is? That will most likely have the weight limits on it, or at least on a spec sheet somewhere. 

 

However, bearing in mind that the glass is only 5mm thick, I would say that it won't be able to hold it safely. 

 

Edit: Never mind. I've just put the rough size of the glass into a tempered glass weight calculator and it recommends that 2kg is the maximum amount that it can handle.

i have varois small stuff on it before, i think they added up to 2kg

i have this ikea vittsjo laptop stand with tempered glass on top, its rated at 15kg

 

2kg just seems to weak, a very slight midhandling would break the glass? it would be on the PC new.... 

 

where you get that number?
