Safer homes for families
Children love games and mischief, hiding, jumping, running and throwing. As a result, they’re at a higher risk of having accidents which can sometimes be prevented. So, anything you can do to provide extra peace of mind in the home is welcome.
New build and renovation projects today take this into consideration and put wellbeing at the top of the priority list. Glass not only makes homes bright and comfortable, but also keeps them safe – protecting against falls, vandalism, theft and even fire or explosions.
Contemporary glazing ensures those beautiful glass partitions, balustrades and staircases will be tough and accident-proof. And that exposed windows, doors and glass facades are secure enough for you to sleep in peace in a high-rise apartment or isolated house.
How does safety glass work?
Toughened glass is created with a thermal treatment to make it up to five times stronger than ordinary glass. If broken, it will disintegrate into small, blunt pieces. Laminated glass like Stratobel is made of two panes with a transparent film (PVB) sandwiched inside. Varnished glass options have a safety backing film to hold shards in place in the unlikely event of break. Plus, the Cradle-to-Cradle (C2C) Bronze environmental certification of those products means you can choose a material that is kind to the planet, as well as safeguarding your loved ones.
