Safety & Burglary

What is Safety & Burglary Resistant Glass?
Laminated safety glass is a multifunctional glazing material that when impacted, typically breaks safely and remains an integral part of the opening. Impulse burglaries are resisted by the tough plastic interlayer.

Where should I use it?
Applications such as doors, sidelites, patio doors, etc. that must meet the requirements of the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) 16 CFR 1201 Safety Standard for Architectural Glazing Materials.

Safety & Burglary Applications

Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® regularly supplies laminated glass for special applications such as swimming pools and aquariums, zoo enclosures, glass floors and stairs, balustrades and handrails. These applications all have structural loading conditions very different from those for conventional architectural glass and therefore require careful consideration. To date, there are no national consensus standards for these applications.

Capabilities [+][-]

Safety & Burglary Capabilities

Laminated safety glass is manufactured by permanently bonding two or more lites of clear, tinted, Low-E, patterned, wired or reflective glass with one more or more layers of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) sheets. Assembly takes place in the carefully controlled environment of a clean room, ensuring no contaminants are trapped in the product. Final bonding is achieved in an air autoclave under heat and pressure, which creates a single solid construction. See Symmetrical Lay-ups Data Chart below.

Performance [+][-]

Safety & Burglary Performance

Laminated safety glass is tested using a taped, leather bag filled with lead shot weighing 100 lbs. A standard size piece of glass is clamped vertically in a frame. The impactor is supported from a wire cable so that it will impact the glass in the center. The ball is lifted to the required height and allowed to swing freely into the glass. Numerous cracks and fissures may occur, but no shearing or opening, through which a 3-inch diameter sphere may pass freely, will develop.
