When it comes to safety glass, architects and designers today typically specify two options: toughened glass and laminated glass.

toughened laminated clear glass safety for window facade

These glass products are all known for providing proven protection, and they all have their own safety advantages.


Toughened glass is usually designated before laminated glass as it is a more affordable product. However, in many applications, laminated glass should be preferred.


Shop Door Windows

All glass, either fully or partially below the 800 mm threshold (or below 1500 mm in or around the doorway), must be safety glass.


For commercial properties, such as stores or office, that are unoccupied at night, it is usually best to specify laminated glass for any exterior windows or doors with glass below these thresholds.


Specifying laminated glass will ensure that if the window is broken, the glass will remain fixed in the glazing system and your building will remain secure until the glass can be replaced.


Overhead Glass

All overhead glass must be of safety glass, including all overhead features, such as a clerestory, glass canopy and ceiling, glass railings, glass facades, and glass arches.


British standard BS5516 part 2 specifies that toughened or laminated glass may be used below 5m from the ground. Between 5 meters and 13 meters above the ground, the thickness of the toughened glass shall not exceed 6 mm and the area shall not exceed 3 square meters, otherwise the specified laminated glass must be used.


This is because, if the toughened glass above is broken for any reason, small debris falling from 13m or higher may cause significant harm to anyone who is unfortunately standing below.


Glass Floor

Glass floor is almost always built with a kind of laminated glass, or the use of laminated hollow composite glass products for glass floor, safe and beautiful.


Glass Partition Wall

All glass partition wall must be built with safety glass, whether it is toughened glass or laminated glass, using glass as a partition can achieve maximum lighting, with ordinary solid walls and partition wall space dark, leading to the need to install artificial lighting, which may cost more electricity to illuminate. If a privacy partition is required, building glass factory can also provide customized printing glass and frosted glass and other glass products as your partition.


Building glass factory produces its own laminated glass, which means we can provide high quality products and fast lead times.
