Toughened Glass

Burglars can 'Pop' standard toughened glass (BS EN 12150) by puncturing a hole usually in one of the four corners of the panel by using a tool such as a screwdriver.

The weakened glass is pressed so it falls into small blunt pieces. Burglars who use the window popping burglary method always wear protective gloves to prevent cuts to their hands.

It is well known that if a burglar is successful in entering a property the likelyhood of a return is probable. The reason for this is that insurance companies will pay for a like-for-like glass panel or lock that is neither police or insurance approved but just does the job.

To prevent this from happening again requires a product upgrade and that is where laminated glass come in.

Large Glass Panels

Toughened glass is designed for safety in the home and not designed to withstand a significant manual attack.

A Burglar will target large glass panels like french doors or patio doors as they provide a large, easy entry and exit.

What is Laminated Glass?

Laminated Glass is made from two or more annealed sheets or heat treated and bonded together using layers. In essence laminated glass when struck does not break away. It sticks to the plastic type coating which ensures it stays safely in place and secure. This makes it an extremely effective defence against glass smashing attempts.

How can I tell what Standard of Glass I have?

Laminated glass should be marked so that it can be clearly seen once fitted.

  • BS EN 12150 for toughened glass
  • BS EN 14449 for laminated glass
  • BS EN 14179 for heat soaked, thermally toughened glass.

Check both glass panels on double glazing as the glass panels could be different.
