Security Glass Laminates

Security Glass Laminates

Glass has long since been used to convey transparency and openness. As we utilize glass in buildings, we are presented with significant security vulnerability. Today, we live in a world of uncertainty with increasing environmental and criminal threats.

Security Glass Laminates can be used to protect the occupants of a building. When applied to ordinary glass, Security Glass Laminates will render windows smash-resistant.

When under attack, whether it is intentional or accidental, our laminates resist penetration. When a window breaks, the laminate will hold the glass fragments together. Since the laminate holds the glass in place, individuals will be protected from shattering glass fragments.

While it cannot stop intruders from entering school buildings, it does act as a deterrent, providing precious response time by slowing the intruder down or stopping them altogether.

How does it work?

Security Glass Laminates are thin but incredibly strong layers of polyester laminate. Microscopic layers are sandwiched together with a super strong adhesive.

The adhesive adheres the polyester layers to the windows. The adhesive also helps to absorb the shock of a blunt object and disperses the energy from the impact. For example, when a window or glass door is struck by a Louisville Slugger, the laminate disperses the energy from the bat, causing the glass to stay intact, even though it is broken. The more the laminated glass is struck the stronger the laminate becomes.

Benefits:

  • Ordinary windows and doors become smash-resistant when Security Glass Laminates are applied.
  • More cost efficient than replacing windows with shatter proof glass.
  • Increases building security quickly and discretely.
  • Reduced risk of damage from flying debris caused by severe weather.
  • Security Glass Laminates can withstand high levels of use and wear due to its scratch resistant layer.
  • They can be cleaned using most glass cleaning solutions.
