Safety & security

A component should be reliable if it‘s going to be safe to use. Glass manufacturers recognised this fact more than 100 years ago and apply this principle to automotive glass manufactured today.  A wide range of safety glass is available that is used either individually or in combination with other types of glass in building construction. 

In each application, whether they involve fully glazed doors, showers, parts of furniture or large- scale glazing in public areas, glass should not be applied in such a way that it results in sharp-edged shards, which could cause serious injuries in the case of glass breakage or shattering. This is why heat treated or laminated safety types of glass are supplied in very different assemblies, depending on their intended use.
