How does it work?
Double Glazing Devon https://devon-doubleglazing.uk are often asked why doulble glazing works and it is because security glass is laminated glass in which two or more sheets of glass are comprised with one or more PVB interlayers. Heat and pressure are used to bond the whole assembly together, resulting in the complete adherence of interlayers and glass. Even if the windows get broken someday, the pieces of the glass will still stick to the plastic interlayer and the window will endure using the last pieces of it until it gets repaired.

Laminated Glass. As mentioned before, laminated glass has the similar resilience as common glass, however, it is made up of a couple of pieces of glass covering a sandwich of plastic interlayer. Inner layer in between the two sheets of the layered glass keeps the broken glass particles in place leaving no hole for easy access in case of breakage for intruders and no dangerous pieces posing potential threats to occupants. It’s the same glass you find in shop fronts and car windscreens.
Hardened Glass. Toughened glass is up to five times as powerful as conventional glass which indicates that it has to be hammered much harder to break; also when it does break it is into lots of small pieces which are much less dangerous. It is the same glass you see within bus stops as well as telephone boxes wherein you must have watched it shattered to tiny fragments on the floor.
