Safety Glass

Safety glass is intended to prevent or minimize the risk of injury in case of human impact.

Safety glass is available as laminated and toughened glass both providing increased impact protection.

Toughened glass

Toughened glass is heated to very high temperatures creating compressive stress in the suface of the glass.  The treatment makes the glass able to withstand severe impacts such as kicking or people tripping and hitting the glass.

When toughened glass breaks, it shatters into many small blunt pieces which reduces the risk of serious injury.

Laminated glass

Laminated glass is a combination of two or more layers of glass with an interlayer of plastic film.  The glass is heated until the plastic film melts and bonds with the glass forming a transparent pane.

The plastic film in laminated glass holds the glass pieces together thus preventing serious injury.

Always choose personal safety glass if parts of the unit is placed less than 1.80 metres above the floor in doors and door side-lights and access points.  The same applies to other risk areas where the unit is placed less than 0.8 metres above a particular surface.
