Security Glass as the name suggests is a prelude to a relatively secure glass environment that may hinder potential burglur or impact situations. Security Glass may be manufactured using poly vinyl butryl PVB or at times using toughned glass annealing with poly acrylic laminate.

Toughened Glass is manufactured using extreme heating and afterwards rapid cooling . It is normally used in architectural situtaions like balcony glass or staircases or whenever you may need a sturdier alternative to normall easy-to-brake glass.

Security Glass comes in many forms for example:-
  a) Normal window or door impact-resistent glass
  b) Bullet-resistant glass.
  This article is limited to normal impact-resistant security glass

Security Glass is useful for:-

1) Impact-resitant – can withstand direct hand tool impacts from axes, hammers, bricks etc for a few minutes

6) When broken it tends to not shatter and stays in place. Note that’s when it is broken from one side and when normal impact -resistant security glass is broken from both sides, then one may need a stronger security glass to hold it together.

Security Glass Vs Toughened:- Security Glass is stronger than Toughened Glass but it’s usage is quite selective and under normal day to day circumstances wherever a liklihood of glass being broken is there, toughened glass should be enough protection.
