That's what I was thinking. Tempered or not......... fast flying projectiles can do damage to your face & eyes. Or what about a small child!

I am a glass artist and work with kiln fired glass all the time...glass from different sources will have different coefficients of expansion...not to get technical with you but simply put if the firing schedule for the glass is not carefully monitored especially on the way down stress will be built into the glass. Weeks or even months after cooling the stresses will cause the glass to fracture along the stress lines. This sounds like what happened to you...a poor mix of glass and improper firing.

As mentioned, if process is not controlled properly a large amount of stress is built up and stored in the glass. That stress is released randomly in the form of an explosion of the glass.

Happened to our 2014 378 XL last year, went with Ceramic rectangular above counter sink from Lowes for a little over $100 and Forest River reimbursed and said that there was a bad batch of Glass as others have explained.

Internally stressed tempered glass does not fly, it simply cracks into million pieces and drops.

Similar to a car window.
