Dear Glass Detective,

Which glass is the best? I want extreme security for a door. I am concerned of tempered glass because it shatters and I have dogs. What is the best security door glass? Thank you!



Dear Angelina,

Based on the information you provided, I would recommend a laminated glass for your security door glass. Depending on the size of the glass and how much abuse it might take from your dogs, you may want to go with a tempered laminated product. You could also use tempered glass and put a safety film over it, but the film may ultimately get scratched by the dogs. So again, based on the info provided, it sounds like laminated glass would be the way to go. Good luck with this project.
