The key to having a broken glass panel replaced is to have it done safely and complying to current Australian Standards. In general this is not a DIY job for a home handy man. Glass is much like electrical work, where one small mistake can lead to a serious injury.
What should I do with my broken glass?
There are three main types of glass, float glass, laminated glass and toughened glass.
Have this type of glass replaced as soon as possible.
Toughened glass will break into hundreds of small pieces. Sometimes the glass will lock into place and hold but in a majority of cases the glass will crumble to the ground. An open area will remain requiring immediate glass replacement.

In most cases next day installation is appropriate but care must be taken as ordinary glass can be mistaken for laminated glass. Sometimes ordinary glass will break in the same manner, appearing to hold together only to fall out in dangerous shards.

Ordinary Float Glass
Trying to handle broken ordinary glass is dangerous and should be left to a professional. Same day replacement is recommended.
Ordinary float glass is commonly found in homes and commercial properties throughout Sydney. In many situations the glass must be cut out by a qualified glazier.
