Security Laminated glass
Security Laminated glass with a PVB or ionomer thickness of 0.060” (1.52mm) and greater is often used to deter forced entry and “smash and grab” attacks. Laminated glass is an excellent choice in all types of buildings that may be targets of bomb blasts. The proper interlayer can hold the glass together after an impact and retain the glazing in the opening. Typically annealed or heat strengthened glass is used, with an interlayer of at least 0.060” (1.52mm). It is important that the glass and framing be tested together to assure performance. Your framing manufacturer can provide information on what glass assemblies have been tested with their specific framing system.
