Safety glass is an innovative material that is made to resist breakage. If safety glass does break, it will break in a manner that limits your chances of being injured or cut as a result. Did you know that your car windows are probably constructed of safety glass? This is to prevent a window from shattering and causing greater injury if you are in a car crash. While it is common in cars, it is finally becoming more common in homes. Safety glass is a very effective way to protect your home around the clock.
The Amazing Benefits of Safety Glass
Safety glass can be used with or without window tinting to increase your home’s security. Safety glass is most commonly installed in areas of the home where the glass breaking could cause major injuries. When safety glass is broken, it will break in a manner that is safe and will not leave sharp shards on the floor. Instead, it breaks into many small little pieces. Since it is harder than normal glass, many homeowners install safety glass in the windows on the front of their home and the windows on the lower-level of their home that are susceptible to breakage. If a burglar encounters a window made with safety glass, they will have a much harder time getting in. If they do manage to break the window, it will break in a manner that will not injure you or your pets when you inspect the damage.
How is Safety Glass Different?
Safety glass is produced using a unique manufacturing process. An abrasive is used to remove any sharp portions of the glass, which is cut to size and then washed. Safety glass is then put through a high-pressure cooling procedure called quenching. Quenching uses high pressure air to quickly blast the safety glass and cool the surface rapidly.
