How does it work?
Customers ask Double Glazing Portsmouth (https://doubleglazing-portsmouth.uk) are all double glazing windows the same and the reply no because double glazing made with security glass is usually laminated glass made up of a couple or more glass sheets with one or more interlayers of PVB. The entire construction is bound together through the use of pressure and heat, causing a total sticking of glass and interlayer. 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. You can choose where to insert the laminated security glass. It can be placed both on the inner pane or outer pane of a double glazing window, but you have to be meticulous about the framing system.
Laminated glasses with various degrees of security and safety can be gained by changing the number and thickness of each of the fire glass and interlayer elements. Security glass that can be produced that can guard against several kinds of dangers by using it own set of BS standard regulations.
What is the Protection Advantage of Utilising Security Laminated Glass Rather Than Toughened Glass with Industry Standard in Doors and Windows Wherein Security Glazing is Obliged?
Let’s examine the difference between these two glass types.
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. The difference is that there is no gap left for burglars to enter or cause dangerous pieces of glass to fall out when it is damaged, since the plastic interlayers keep the glass together. Similar glass type is used in car window screens and shops front.
Toughened 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. Standard annealed glass is the type of glass that does not require safety glazing and when it gets broken, the glass does not break into tiny pieces, but it gets shattered into rough medium sized pieces. There is no need to replace this kind of glass, since burglars would be afraid to break and enter because of the deep cut this type of glass can inflict when broken.
