What is Robax?
There is a specialised type of glass for situations in which glass is exposed to heat, such as fire place doors. The glass is called Robax, and this glass is a ceramic glass combination which has been heat treated to be able to withstand temperatures between 100degrees and 400degrees Celsius.
Why does the glass suddenly crack?
As with all glass, Robax weathers and can become brittle over time, especially while withstanding the temperatures of fire for example, even though you may not be able to physically see any damage until it actually cracks.
