A type of glass called security glass is treated in such a way as to make it much safer than ordinary glass. Safety glass is necessary to ensure the safety and security of people in their homes and workplaces.

Types of safety glass

Both tempered and laminated glass are available, each with its advantages.

To understand the differences between the two kinds, we will first explore the two types.

Tempered glass

Strengthening of Tempered glass and more resistance to fracture by being heated to approximately 1200°F then quickly cooled.  Unlike glass often used in plates, tempered glass does not break into sharp shards when it breaks. In contrast, instead of breaking, it will fall apart into small fragments. Typical uses of tempered glass include computers: computer displays in the refrigerator, and shelves. When it comes to oven and microwave doors, they’re an excellent choice. Passenger-side vehicle windows

Laminated glass

Bonded glass is a kind of safety glass where two layers of glass are laminated together using plastic glue to prevent glass shards from flying.

Broken glass creates the spiderweb-like “safety windshield” pattern seen on broken car windshields. Two layers of glass are sandwiched between two film layers, making laminated glass. Shower doors and enclosures, as well as other glass items, are frequently made of laminated glass.

Storefronts have doors and windows

An excellent illustration of this is greenhouse windows. We will be discussing the manufacturing process for security glass, which is relevant if you have a working knowledge of the security glass production process.

How security glass can prevent break-ins

A window in your house is one of your home’s most susceptible points of entry. Even if you ensure that your windows are locked while you’re not at home, an assailant can break a plate glass window. If you had safety glass placed on your windows, it would be impossible for an assailant to get into your home. In this comparison, the tempered glass on the left has 5–10 times the strength of regular plate glass, demonstrating the importance of tempering in increasing the strength of tempered glass.

Another reason why laminated glass is better protected from repeated hits is that it is more resistant to impacts. It suggests that someone trying to break into a house would have to put in much more time and effort breaking a window made of safety glass than trying to break one made of plate glass. Even if the thief smashes the window, the glass break sensors may trigger your security alarm, making it difficult for the burglar to go undetected.
