Glass is not just a transparent material that ensures brightness and a sense of space in interiors. Thanks to special finishing and processing, it can also perform a variety of safety functions. Categories of safety glass include single-pane (toughened) safety glass, heat-strengthened glass, laminated safety glass and special insulating glass.
Certain types of glass are better suited to specific applications: To protect people or property we recommend our ISOLAR MULTIPACT® safety glass, an insulating glass with penetration-resistant and impact-resistant properties. Laminated safety glass and heat-strengthened glass from Arnold Glas reliably protect from injury and ensure greater resistance to technical stresses. As a result they are often used for overhead glazing, glass doors and shop fronts.
Single-pane toughened safety glass
As a result of heat treatment (tempering), single pane toughened safety glass is much more heat-resistant and offers higher flexural strength and shock and impact resistance.
Specifically used in the building industry, heat-strengthened glass is used mainly in laminated glass combinations, especially when flexural strength or temperature resistance are required.
Laminated safety glass
Laminated safety glass consists of two or more panes of glass firmly bonded with one another using PVB (polyvinyl butyral) films. The result is a transparent glass combination with high safety characteristics.
