Windows, doors and shopfronts are common entry points for thieves and intruders. Standard float or annealed glass panes are an easy target for vandals to gain access to a property as they fall apart upon impact. Security glass products can be up to 20 times stronger against impact compared to ordinary annealed glass. This makes security glass products a valuable addition to any exposed window, shopfront or glass door. Roy’s Glass specialists are able to replace your existing glass with security glass products or add security film to your existing glass to strengthen it. Making your home, shop or office a secure fortress without destroying the view.
Laminated glass is not technically considered a security glass type however, if entry is being gained via ordinary float or annealed glass; laminated glass could be a cheaper alternative to installing security glass. Laminated safety glass is made by laminating two panels of ordinary annealed glass together using a plastic interlayer. This holds the glass together upon impact rather than it falling apart like ordinary glass.
Toughened laminated glass
Toughened laminated glass is made exactly how it sounds and much in the same way as laminated glass. The main difference with toughened laminated glass is that the two panels laminated together using the plastic inter-layer are put into a toughening furnace first. This makes the surface area of the glass much stronger than ordinary glass. Toughened laminated safety glass is also the same type of glass used in the majority of roof awnings, balustrades and traffic-able glass.
