How Laminated glass Works as a Security measure. It's no surprise that businesses and homes want to maintain an open and airy feel by using glass windows and doors. This allows natural light to permeate the room, as well as offering potential customers a peek at what lies within. Unfortunately, along with showing customers what's on display, glass gives an unbeatable view and easy access for thieves and other threats. This is one of the main reasons that owners and builders are turning to laminated glass for added security. While this glass isn't one hundred percent bullet proof, it does put a layer of protection between the owner's valuables and any potential danger. In fact, test results show that some thicker standards of laminate glass remain bullet resistant after an assault. Thinner makes and models still maintain their integrity when up against blunt force objects such as rocks, crow bars and hammers. As the percentage of inner polyvinyl butryal layer goes up so does its ability to resist an impact. In some cases, this glass has been shown to hold up against bomb blasts. With resistance glazing, laminated glass is designed to stand up against all kinds of pressure. The inner layer absorbs impacts and responds in an elastic fashion which then transfers the energy to the frame. In some cases the glass may crack or spiderweb but will never shatter. Whether it's in the home or for a commercial space, individuals prioritize their safety and that of their valuables. Using laminated glass is just one of the many ways that persons can protect themselves. It's also a stunning counter measure against non human assailants such as storms. The benefits of laminated glass are many. When it comes to security, the old saying remains true, it's better to be safe than sorry. Using this glass could be the counter measure that saves a home or business.
