Safety and Security covers a range of types and uses of glass. Safety glasses have properties intended to reduce or eliminate injury in the event of an accident or fire while security glasses are primarily aimed at preventing unwelcome access to your property.
These products generally fall into the categories of toughened, laminated and wired glass as detailed below:
Toughened Glass. Although specialist fire resistant products are available the toughened glass we supply is a simple impact safety glass. It is manufactured to BS6206 class A and is available in clear as well as a wide range of textured or patterned styles.
Toughened glass is produced by heating ordinary annealed glass to a high temperature and then cooling it rapidly. This gives the glass approximately 4 to 5 times the impact resistance of ordinary glass and alters the structure such that if it does break it disintegrates into small, mostly harmless, pieces. This quality makes it unsuitable in areas where security is necessary but highly desirable in locations where safety is paramount such as internal glass doors.
Laminated Glass. The 6.4mm clear laminated glass that we supply meets BS6206 class B for impact resistance and is a good choice when security is a high priority. This is made by bonding 2 sheets of 3mm thick glass together with a transparent plastic layer called polyvinyl butyral (pvb). This pvb interlayer also absorbs most of the UV radiation in the sunlight helping to prevent bleaching and fading of your furnishings.
We can also supply fire rated Pyroguard C (BS476 part 22 providing 30 minutes integrity in a suitable glazing system)
Safety Wired Glass. Available in clear and a textured finish, this glass is both a safety glass (BS6206 class C) and a fire rated glass (BS476 part 22 offering 120 minutes integrity in a suitable glazing system). The wires also act as a visual and physical deterrent for would be intruders.
