The correct selection of glass can help increase safety and security in your home.

Security Glass

Laminated glass is just not a safety glass, but when broken will tend to remain intact, so it is an ideal glass for preventing the forced entry into your home.

Statistics show that if a potential intruder is not successful within 45 seconds of attempting entry, they will most often move onto another target.

Laminated bandit resistant glass, which has a heavier interlayer than normal laminate, can withstand up to 20 blows from a blunt instrument before failing.

A number of security options are available in combinations of tinted and Low "E" products. G.James can discuss your requirements and recommend the most suitable product.

Safety Glass

Safety glass is glass that minimises the risk of injury when broken. There are three main types as recognised by Australian Standards:

Laminated Glass
Laminated glass is usually two plies of ordinary glass sandwiched around an interlayer of a plastic like material (poly vinyl butyral). When impacted the glass may break, but the interlayer holds the glass together and also prevents a person passing through the broken panel. G.James offers a number of types of laminated glass including ultra-clear Opti-safe laminated glass.
Toughened
Toughened glass is created by putting ordinary glass through a heating / cooling process. This not only produces a much stronger material, but if broken it is reduced to small blunt edged particles that are relatively harmless.
Safety mirror
Safety mirror is where ordinary mirror glass has a vinyl or polypropylene film glued to the backing, so that if broken the risk of injury is reduced.
G.James range of glass products provide the ideal safety & security solutions for your projects.
