SAFETY GLASS



1 Laminated Glasses

Laminated glass is a kind of safety glass that is commonly used for automobile windshields. It consists of two layers of glass with a layer of film, called the interlayer, in between them. The glass is designed this way in order to prevent it from shattering into sharp pieces when struck by an object or when the car is in an crash.

The interlayer in laminated glass is a film of a tough yet pliable material known as polyvinyl butyral (PVB). In the event that the glass breaks, the two layers are held together by the PVB, allowing the glass as a whole to bend and absorb the impact. This characteristic is especially important for car windshields. Ideally, the PVB layer will keep objects from penetrating through the glass and possibly injuring the car’s occupants. Laminated glass is also used in prisons, jewelry stores, hospitals, and other places where safety or security are paramount

2 Toughened Glass

Toughened glass is float glass that has been through a rigorous heating & cooling procedure, this procedure makes toughened glass 5x stronger than float glass. It is commonly used for glazed doors, low level windows (below 800mm) tabletops and glass shelving etc. If broken, toughened glass will shatter into hundreds of tiny pieces that do not have the jagged sharp edges associated with broken float glass. It is important to remember that once glass has been through the toughening process, it is impossible to cut or alter again as the glass will shatter if broken or cut in anyway.

3 Fire Resistant glass


A range of Fire Resistant Glass types are available offering increasing levels of protection, which is measured in defined time periods (30, 60, 90, 120 and 180 minutes). It should be noted that Fire Resistant Glass must always be specified as part of a tested and approved glazing system and installation should be carried out by specialists in order to ensure that the expected fire performance is achieved should it be called upon.

4 Multi Laminated Glass ("Anti Bandit Glass")

Multi Laminated Glass is a specialist security product. The multi-layered laminate resists penetration, the glass may break but the interlayer’s retain overall integrity and continues to act as an effective barrier. Protects against break-ins by preventing or slowing down burglary attempts and withstands repeated blows from heavy objects such as bricks, hammers, crowbars and similar hand held heavy objects. Typical applications include buildings, houses or shops displaying valuable goods, banks, building societies, post offices, security glazing in hospitals and prisons, museum display cases etc.
