The commonly used annealed glass is easy to break. Tempered glass, though stronger, can also be shattered by applying great force. Laminated glass is much stronger, and if broken at all, behaves very differently. It has a vinyl interlayer which stays in the frame, allowing the fragments of glass to adhere to it. With this adherence, a stronger barrier against forced entry is provided, since now the glass cannot be cut from just one side. Glasscutters are hence rendered useless.
Laminated glass from Cardinal LG complies with very demanding industry regulations, among them the ASTM FI 233, which is the standard regulating prevention of forced entry as outlined by the American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM). In addition, it complies with UL 972, Underwriters Laboratories guidelines for burglary resistance. Our laminated glass has been customized according to the requirements for all security applications, with the best options available to select from.
