What is Safety Glass?
Safety glass is glass with extra features which make it stronger and less likely to break. Toughened glass and laminated glass are common designs and to be classified as safety glass, the material must have passed an impact test and meet BS 6206:1981.
Safety glass is a common feature of homes, businesses and commercial properties and you can find it everywhere, from double glazing to glass balustrades.
Uses of Safety Glass
The added security of safety glass makes it ideal for a range of domestic and commercial applications in Epsom. Our glaziers cut safety glass to any specification and regularly supply it for:
Glass Splashbacks – Splashbacks are often subject to heat, temperature changes, water and impact, so they need to stand up to a lot. That’s why we supply toughened splashbacks which are highly resistant and durable.
Shower Screens – Your shower screen needs to be strong and reliable because screens often get bashed. In addition, if you fall or lean on the glass, it needs to take the weight and not break. Low quality or unsuitable glass poses a high risk, which is why we use safety glass for shower screens and enclosures in Epsom.
Glass Balustrades – The main reason for installing balustrades is to provide a safety barrier, so they must be strong and durable. As experienced glaziers, we supply balustrades in toughened glass to your specifications, while ensuring they meet the highest safety standards and building regulations.
Windows – To ensure maximum security at your home or business, it is important to have resilient windows. Lister Glass supplies double glazing in toughened glass which gives you peace of mind as well as improving energy efficiency. Furthermore, to comply with building regulations certain windows and doors must use safety glass.
Why Use Safety Glass?
Safety glass offers numerous benefits which make it popular with customers in the Epsom area.
Safety – When laminated glass breaks, an interlayer holds it in place, making it much safer than traditional glass. As such, it is popular for everything from skylights to shower screens.
Security – Safety glass is significantly harder to penetrate, providing extra security for homes and businesses, especially those with a high risk of burglary.
Versatility – Safety glass is available in a broad range of styles, such as flat, curved and tinted, and our glaziers cut glass to any size. This makes it ideal for all kinds of applications, including glass splashbacks and balustrades.
