It goes without saying that safety and security are the most critical aspect of any home interior set-up. A home truly feels like home when all of its residents feel secure and safe enough to live in peace. One way to ensure a theft-free environment inside the house without marring the beauty of the décor is by installing beefed-up glass doors and windows.
While glass has been conventionally thought of as a fragile material, with modern advancements in technology, it is one of the strongest materials today. There are various types of glasses available today with different kinds of functionalities. These glass solutions are aesthetically gratifying and customizable according to one’s personal choice. Here is a guide on how to use and apply different kinds of glasses in the house to enhance its beauty as well as security.
Toughened or tempered glass is known to be up to five times stronger than your regular glass, which means that it is able to bear considerable load without breaking. The safety and resilience that toughened glass offers make it a perfect fit for homes, especially those with young children.
Another useful attribute of toughened glass is that the glass does not break into shards or spikes in a situation of severe impact. Instead, it crumbles into small, blunt pebbles that significantly cut down the risk of injury.
What makes the AIS Stronglas even more formidable is the fact that it is processed and controlled by thermal treatment. This makes it much stronger than any ordinary glass. The process involves heating the glass to its melting point and cooling it rapidly that puts the outer surface into compression and the inner surface into tension. It can be installed in table tops, balustrades, shelves, facades, shower enclosures, etc.
- Laminated Glass
Laminated glass is produced by adhering two or more sheets of glass with PVB interlayer/s. It is the ‘laminated’ interlayer, processed with heat and pressure under factory conditions, which lends the glass its integrity and makes it sturdy. In case any damage occurs, the interlayer holds all the fragments together preventing them from scattering and reducing injury risk.
- Insulated Glazed Unit :
IGU consists of two or more panels of glass separated by an air spacer and an aluminium or other type of spacer, around the edges, sealed to the perimeter in a controlled condition. The space contains a drying agent which eliminates the moisture vapour in the cavity. This combination makes this glass type a superior energy-efficient method of glazing.
- Heat Strengthened Glass :
Heat- Strengthening is the process where the glass is first heated slowly and cooled gently. This makes the glass twice as strong as annealed glass . This glass type can withstand high temperature differentials.
Doors and windows made from AIS Securityglas are ideal as they are safe and strong. Breaking into a home secured by laminated uPVC doors & windows is not easy as it involves a lot of effort and noise. The AIS Securityglas is of superior quality and provides a good degree of sound proofing to shut out undesirable noise pollution.
Safety is the primary concern of the residents. With AIS Glass safety and security solutions, your home will become your serene sanctum.
