How it usually works

Visit Double Glazing Essex know that security glass looks just like any other laminated glass, applying two or more sheets of glass with one or more additions of PVB interlayer which is why double glazing windows are used. To achieve full adhesion between the glass and the sandwiched layers, the whole unit is bounded using pressure and high temperatures. As you wait for a new window to be installed in the event that your current one has incurred damage, the window maintains its residual sturdiness because the glass shards are stuck to the plastic interlayer. Laminated security glass could placed on either the interior or exterior pane of a double glazing window, however, it should be employed with a proper framing system.

The several kinds of security glass will be explained first.
Laminated Glass. As already stated layered glass has the same strength as conventional glass, but it consists of two pieces of glass including a sandwich of the 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.
Standard Annealed Glass. This type of window glass is used in places that don’t require safety glazing and it breaks into sharp pieces.
