Rehab Addict Comes to Empirehouse

Empirehouse was pleased to host DIY Network’s Nicole Curtis on June 16. Nichole and her production crew came to film a segment about glass types on her popular cable network show “Rehab Addict.”

We demonstrated and explained the differences between annealed, laminated, and tempered glass, their specific uses, along with a live demonstration on the strength of each glass type. Of course the best way to demonstrate glass strength is by attempting to break the glass. While each glass type is breakable, how much work it takes to “destroy” each glass type requires a different level of effort. The results of our demonstration will be aired in winter 2012.

This was a great experience for all of us at Empirehouse. We enjoyed our brief brush with fame, plus we hope that sharing this will help others make the right glass choice when remodeling their projects.
