Occasionally, production machinery requires a safety shield to protect the operator from aspects of the production process that may include flying pieces of raw material. The operator still needs to see the production process and glass shields provide clear visibility and protection.

Different types of glass, in conjunction with ceramics, can provide strength and heat resistance during the production process.
