GLAZING OPTIONS SERIES - Glass For Security
In this second instalment of our Glazing Options Series, we look at choosing glass types that can improve the security of your home.
With the security and protection of the family being of the utmost importance to any homeowner, your selection of windows and doors, together with your choice of performance glass, can contribute to the overall security of your home and the safety of your loved ones.
Performance glasses such as Viridian IntruderGuard looks like normal glass yet provides a barrier to forced entry that is 20 times harder to break through than standard float glass and it achieves this without making a building look like a fortress. These types of performance glass are specifically developed to offer a resilient and enduring barrier for vulnerable entry points across a broad range of applications. For example, IntruderGuard is 7.52mm laminated glass and provides extra resistance to penetration because its interlayer is four times thicker than normal laminated glass.
The 300 Series and Architectural Ranges of Southern Star aluminium products, and all items in the Canterbury timber range, are suited to the use of performance glasses such as IntruderGuard. The 300 Series and Architectural range also offer the added security of stronger and sturdier frames, further enhancing its resilience to attack. Extra peace of mind for the security of your family can be achieved by adding lockable hardware as an option to any product in the Southern Star aluminium range.** Some products in both the aluminium and timber range also come with lockable hardware as standard. Speak to your builder or Sales Representative for more information.
