Everyone feels the need to protect their home, right from the entrance door. That is why an armoured door with shatterproof glass is considered the best solution.
But is it really? Let us start with an important consideration: armoured doors with glass also satisfy the need for brightly light interiors.
Certainly, features such as safety, thermal insulation and protection against the weather are all guaranteed by a door with shatterproof glass.
Another important characteristic of such doors is elegance, as they stand out from classic single-material doors.
This is certainly an interesting “detail” for those wishing to welcome their guests into a distinguished looking home.
Various types of shatterproof glass
Where should you start when choosing an armoured door with shatterproof glass? The first step would be to learn about the main types of shatterproof glass available. This is usually divided into 4 categories:
- Bulletproof glass
- Anti-burglary glass
- Vandal-proof glass
- Safety glass
Of course, any preference for one glass over another would depend on the features and performance required.
One consideration you should pay close attention to is the fracture toughness offered by the glass, which will determine its thickness.
Polycarbonate film for people's safety
Do you know what sets excellent shatterproof glass apart from the rest? Its reaction to fracture. This is as true for armoured doors with shatterproof glass as it is for the glass used in banks and luxury shops.
When a pane of Isoclima glass breaks, the splinters are “retained” by a polycarbonate film or by structural interlayers, preventing serious accidents for the persons involved.
Despite being shattered, the structure thus remains stable and held together, avoiding dangerous consequences.
Our signature product when it comes to shatterproof glass is OmniLite®, a multi-layer glass with a central polycarbonate layer.
The number of layers depends on the level of protection required, in the pursuit of utmost safety.
