The design of the elements, as well as the resulting thickness, depend on the safety requirements of the application. However, the design of the penetration resistant glass can be individually configured in terms of number of glass layers and foil thicknesses in order to meet the exact requirements. More glass layers and thicker PVB-foil layers result in higher attack resistance.
Increasing the number of glass layers with different thicknesses increases the resistance against bullets.
DIFFERENCE OF LAMINATED GLAS AND TEMPERED GLASS
Tempered glass dissolves into tiny crumbs when subject to an impact. Laminated glass remains in one piece and still provides a certain protection after an impact. When an object strikes a laminated glass assembly both glass panels most likely break and a pattern similar to a spider web will appear in the glass.
Remaining laminated to the PVB-foil, the danger of injury due to the resulting smaller pieces of glass is drastically reduced.
Buildings used for sportive activities
- gyms, indoor tennis centers and multiple purpose gyms
Schools and kindergartens
- room dividing glazings and fall protections to prevent injuries through splinters of glass
- higher resistance against impacts
- safe from hail impacts and falling objects
Overhead and roof glazing
- Overhead glazings in private and public spaces as the protective features such as protection against falling objects are maintained due to the lamination foil.
- as simple protection in windows and doors which can be combined with insulated glass designs and is also suitable for balconies, room dividers and bannisters
