Safety Glass Types

1. Toughened Safety Glass

Toughened Glass also known as tempered glass is up to five times stronger than standard float glass / annealed Glass, offering the highest impact resistance.  

Toughened glass is a type of Safety Glass, as it can withstand strong direct impacts and if it does break, instead of breaking into sharp jagged pieces, it does so into small blunt granules.  These granules are less likely to cause injury.

2. Laminated Safety Glass

Laminated Glass is made from two sheets of glass bound together with a plastic or resin interlayer.  The standard and minimum interlayer is 0.38mm thick, however other interlayers are also available in 0.76, 1.14 or 1.52mm.

Laminated Glass has a similar impact strength resistance to annealed float glass. However, it does not shatter and spread when broken, instead remains intact on its plastic or resin interlayer, protecting people from injury. This is why many building codes worldwide require laminated glass.

Stake Glass has its own in-house laminating facility to manufacture laminated glass here in Christchurch. We can provide laminated glass in a variety of glass types, glass combinations, thicknesses and sizes.

The strength of laminated toughened glass makes it ideal for use as balustrades, balconies, pool fencing, overhead canopies, internal partitions, glass stairways and glass floors.
