Here’s How Safety Glass Could Save Your Life!

The Importance Of Investing In Safety Glass:

Safety glass is explicitly designed to both withstand more punishment than its regular counterpart, as well as break much more safely. Safety glass must be used to adhere to Australian national standards for shower screens, shopfronts and more.

The two most common forms of safety glass, especially for households, are toughened glass and laminated glass. Jim’s Glass extends to our customers a complimentary inspection service to assess your home or business, which will provide a report detailing cases of non-compliant glass.

Standards in Australia are continually changing, so it’s imperative that you keep up to date with all regulations. Our team can then recommend and install upgraded and much sturdier safety glass.

Children’s Safety

If you have kids, you’d want to raise your family in a safe and worry-free environment and work to prevent all possible dangers. Unfortunately, broken glass is part and parcel of raising children, whether its a cricket ball through a window or a slammed glass door.

With these inevitabilities in mind, it’s in your best interest to invest in safety glass for the protection of your young family. Safety glass, as mentioned above, commonly appears in either laminated or toughened form.

Toughened glass is perfect for low windows that children might bump into because instead of splintering into extremely dangerous and sharp shards, it crumbles into granules with much less skin piercing power.

Safety glass is manufactured by heat treating which increases the strength of the glass without affecting its chemical composition. The stronger safety glass is built to take more substantial blows, which can prove life-saving in the right situation.

Laminated safety glass is ideal for tall windows and vertical glass that would have the potential to fall dangerously and shatter after human impact. The laminated safety glass contains a thin layer of durable plastic which prevents the two glass panes adhered on each side to break off and fall out, should the event of a break occur.

Security

As unpleasant as it is to allow it to cross your mind, burglaries and home break-ins do occur in Adelaide. One of the most effective ways to provide some peace of mind regarding the safety of your belongings and your family is to purchase safety glass.

Jim’s Glass has qualified glaziers who can provide a free inspection of your home for glass areas that do not meet the Australian safety requirements. It’s crucial to keep up with these requirements, especially if you are interested in selling your home.

Making sure that you’re safe in your own home is of utmost importance to the team at Jim’s Glass, and we are happy to speak with you about any of your safety glass related concerns.
