"Safety glass" is a term given to specific types of glass that when broken will break in such a way as to minimize potential injury to people. This is in contrast to standard "plate glass" which can be dangerous due to the large sharp spear-like pieces that are created when broken.
Glass that has been heated to softening point then rapidly cooled. Toughened glass is five times stronger than float glass and offers the highest resistance to impact. It is ideal for application in doors etc. If broken, the whole pane of glass shatters into small pieces that are relatively safe.
Health and safety restrictions increasingly require glass to be toughened according to its size and use. We will advise you when this is necessary.
Laminated glass is a form of Safety Glass that is manufactured by sandwiching a layer of Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB) between two pieces of glass.
laminated glass is mostly used for safety / security applications as a result of building codes that require higher levels of protection against breakage compared to standard glass e.g shopfronts.
