Safety Glass

Protection against injuries, vandalism and burglary

Thermoglass offers a wide range of safety glasses to meet your every need.

The two main categories of safety glasses are:

Tempered Glass [Securit] – Thermally Hardened

 

Ένας Tempered υαλοπίνακας έχει υποβληθεί σε μια διαδικασία θέρμανσης και ταχείας ψύξης που έχει ως αποτέλεσμα να βρεθεί σε μια μόνιμη κατάσταση όπου δρουν δυνάμεις θλίψης στην επιφάνειά του και εφελκυσμού στο εσωτερικό του.

Στην κατάσταση αυτή ο υαλοπίνακας παρουσιάζει αυξημένη αντοχή τόσο σε θερμοκρασίες όσο και σε κάμψη (3-4 φορές παραπάνω από έναν αντίστοιχο απλό υαλοπίνακα) και κρούση. Όταν σπάσει θα σπάσει σε πολύ μικρά κομμάτια οπότε ελαχιστοποιείται ο κίνδυνος τραυματισμού.

They are used:

  • Where perforation and/or cutting of the glass is required for it to accept components [hinges, knobs, locks, support systems]
  • When the glass will have to withstand some load, heat shock or some elevated temperatures [exposure to sunlight]
  • To minimize the severity of the injury in a possible fracture

Disadvantage:

  • Tempered glass will not stay in place in the event of a break. If this is required, it should also undergo Laminated process.

Laminated Glass [Triplex] – Multilayer

 

A Laminated glazing consists in its simplest form of two glazing glued together with an elastic PVB film. This permanent and strong welding is done by heating and vacuuming. 

In case of breakage, the membrane holds the fragments. It is easy to understand that by changing combinations in type and number of both glass and intermediate membranes, we have a wide range of products that cover every special requirement.

They are used:

  • When glass is required to remain in place in case of breakage [shop windows, windows, doors, balconies, stairs, canopies]
  • To make it harder to invade after vandalism [banks, jewelry stores]
  • To reduce noise levels
  • For protection against weapons and explosive mechanisms

Disadvantage:

  • Laminated glass can not be used in
    applications where glass drilling or cutting is required
    to add hardware. If this is required, it must be preceded by a Tempered treatment.
