Shatterproof glass and glass for thermal insulation: the differences between two exceptional products

For those who are not in the sector, shatterproof glass and thermal insulation glass may appear to be almost the same thing. Since to recognize a quality product you need to know something about it, in this article we would like to talk about the differences and characteristics that qualify these two surfaces, which are as different from each other as they are important in certain contexts.

First of all, shatterproof glass is named as such because of its impact resistance compared to ordinary glass.

This is glass that is sometimes of strategic importance when placed in certain contexts, because it ensures significant protection of people and objects within a given place.

 

The context is of foremost importance

 

To talk about the differences between shatterproof glass and glass for thermal insulation we can start from the different situations of use.

Shatterproof glass panels are mainly used in architecture, and placed within the context of a building that requires high safety standards. Insulating glass panels are mainly used in the yachting sector, to improve thermal and acoustic insulation performance. They are two different products, but both essential if placed in the right place.

One factor to emphasize, for us who care about environmental sustainability, is that thermally insulated window panels allow for greater energy savings and indoor well-being that is good for both the planet and for people. These two products are different from each other, but they have a common element. Let's find out which one.

 

Different processes, same commitment

Whether it is shatterproof glass or thermal insulation, the commitment that Isoclima directs towards these two productions is always very high.

We produce insulating glass panels coupled with armoured glass panels that are slightly different from the shatterproof ones, but have a "double" function, that is, to isolate and protect at the same time. The lowest common denominator is precisely the development of materials that until a few years ago were pure fantasy.

Projects that represent the maximum expression of the Isoclima technology and history, because, on the one hand, they allow for obtaining remarkable thermal and acoustic insulation and, on the other, they offer maximum security in critical and dangerous situations.
What do we owe all this to? To the careful research of our R&D department and to the technical office, which makes our most visionary projects real.
