Tempered glass unless intentionally abused won't break easily.
And if it does break, tempered glass breaks into thousands of tiny pieces that are unlikely to cause serious injury. Unlike non-tempered glass which can break into large razor-sharp piece.
Correct. They also laminate some glass so that if damaged, minimizes the pieces. But I do understand being on the cautious side.--
