How does it work?
Double Glazing Swansea https://doubleglazing-swansea.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. In case of impairment, the fragments of the glass stay connected to the plastic interlayer and the window holds an enduring force whilst waiting for substitution. Coated security glass is attached on the inside or outside of a double glazing window pane provided it is secured in position in the frame system.
Laminated glass having various degrees of defense and security could be acquired through changing the thickness and / or number of every fire glass as well as interlayer. There are BS standard requirements for security glass capable of giving protection against different types of possible hazards.
What are the benefits associated with the use of security bonded glasses in place of standard reinforced windows and doors glass in security glazing?
Let’s examine the difference between these two glass types.
Laminated Glass. Although laminated glass contains two glasses with a plastic interlayer, it has the same level of sturdiness as regular glass, as previously stated. When the glass breaks this interlayer keeps the entire piece intact so there would be no gap in the window for the trespasser to enter through for instance or huge free fragments which could injure. The glass is something that you may see during your everyday life. It is actually the same glass with the glass that you see in car windscreens and the glass that is used as shop entrance or windows.
Hardened Glass. Toughened glass is 5 times stronger compared to the common glass. This strength makes it very hard for intruder to break in. When it gets broken, the glass will be shattered into small pieces so it will not be dangerous. It’s the same glass that you will find in the phone boxes and bus stops where you may have seen it broken into small pieces 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.
