Toughened glass is 5 times stronger than annealed glass. If attacked it will disintegrate into small pieces with dulled edges, thus reducing the risk of injury. Toughened glass is cut to size before the heat treatment process.
Laminated Safety Glass consists of 2 or more sheets of ordinary glass, sandwiched together by a PVB (polyvinyl butyral) interlayer. Should the glass be broken, the shards will remain adhered to the interlayer, reducing damage to both property and people.
Integrity glasses provide a specific resistance to the passage of smoke and fumes, though they will permit the transmission of heat radiation from a fire, this provides inherent fire-resistant properties.
Our ‘etch’ type glass are produced using a process originally patented by John Davenport in 1806, where ground glass is fired onto the surface of the glass at high temperature to form an integral part of it and create a frosted appearance.
