Glass safety standards had been set to protect the lives and well-being of people. Although glass has multitude of uses, one cannot rule out that it can bring its wake, hazards that may injure or even take lives. In response to this need, glass safety standards had laid out certain rules and guidelines to make sure this is prevented.
There are two types of glass that are commonly used as safety glass for homes and other structures. Toughened A-grade glass goes through a process where it is heat treated to increase strength. Laminated glass has a film that holds the glass.
What Kind Of Safety
Security films or laminate is added to the glass to ensure they would be held in place and won’t fall down. No sharp edges, therefore, no risk of being cut.
Ensuring that your family’s safety comes first should be a priority. Safety window films are used in the manufacture and insulation of glass. This type of glass is tried and tested by experts and manufacturers and are in turn given certifications. This test is called an impact test. These tests determine the breaking point and to an extent, the safety ability of the glass.
