What is Toughened (tempered) glass?
Toughened glass is a safety glass designed to implode on impact. The panel disintegrates into small fragments (approx. 4mm pieces) and drops to the floor, causing little or no damage to any persons in the area. It also makes little or no sound upon breaking. It is ideal to use inside premises where safety is paramount.

What is Laminated Safety (Anti-Bandit) glass?
This glass increases security in all instances. It is composed of a three layers: two layers of glass bonded together with a PVU inter-layer. This allows the shatterproof glass to survive impact and support itself despite attempts to break it. Highly recommended and will keep intruders out! Highly recommended for shop fronts, bank cashier security screens, valuable display boxes and kiosks. Available up to a bulletproof resistance grade!

What is Polycarbonate?
We can supply and fit polycarbonate sheet , where there are continual break-ins. However, this material is easily scratched if not cleaned properly.

What are double-glazed units?
A double glazed unit is composed of two panes of glass sealed together with spacers in between. These spacers contain desiccant beads, which remove moisture from the unit, thereby preventing a build up of condensation with temperature fluctuations.
