safety glazing, high performance glass

Safety glazing

Similar to security glazing, safety glazing mostly refers to the window and door units with glass that has been reinforced to resist or mitigate damage. Tempered glass is the most basic form of safety glazing, but within the industry, the phrase usually refers to more involved methods that help retain broken glass and protect building occupants. Both safety and security glazing options employ similar solutions, including but not limited to combinations of laminated glass and other systems, but safety glazing is designed to withstand sustained high winds and objects that have become projectiles via those winds.
