As the tempered glass will break into small particles, can reduce the damage of glass fragments on the human body. But the toughened glass can not be broken after the original shape, this feature also limits the tempered glass in the building of many applications.
(1)Roof, ceiling, skylight; These areas are usually not appropriate to use tempered glass. Due to take into account the snow and other loads, maintenance personnel may be walking and the safety of the person under the  glass. when the roof glass from the ground more than 5m above the ground, these parts can not use toughened glass.

Need to explain, these parts are not suitable to use laminated glass. Because the laminated glass after the broken, due to the role of self-weight and / or other load will fall down.
(2)the floor can not maintain the original shape of the tempered glass broken, there is no strength, so the tempered glass is not suitable for floor glass, especially the floating floor. Floor glass should be laminated glass, floor glass for the surface of the people should do anti-skid treatment.

(3) high-rise building railings, frameless balcony Under normal circumstances, do not bear the level of the load of the railings used in the thickness of the tempered glass shall not be less than 5mm, to withstand horizontal load of the railings used in the thickness of glass shall not be less than 12mm. But used in high-rise buildings on the outside of the railings, frameless balcony are not appropriate to use tempered glass. This is because sometimes after the broken glass, a part of the debris does not separate, but to maintain the original shape, especially thick glass, the occurrence of such a situation will form a relatively heavy pieces of broken glass. When such broken pieces of glass falling from a height, the pedestrian on the ground will cause great harm, and even casualties.
(4) other parts of the other need to break glass still need to keep the shape of the site of the glass, or the need to minimize the damage to the glass fragments of the occasion.
