Evesham Glass and Glazing loved working at this beautiful property in the Warwickshire countryside! The old soft timber windows and doors needed upgrading and due to its rural position, Dane suggested laminated glass on every item including doors and upgraded locking cylinders to Yale 3 Star Platinum for additional security.
 

The Difference Between Toughened Glass and Laminated Glass

Laminated Glass

Same strength as ordinary glass but it consists of two pieces of glass containing a sandwich of plastic interlayer

If the glass does get broken this interlayer holds the whole piece in place so there is no hole left in the window for an intruder to get in through.
 
The same glass you’ll find in car windscreens and shop fronts.

Toughened Glass

Toughened glass is up to five times as strong as ordinary glass which means that it has to be hit much harder to break.

When it does break it is into lots of small pieces which are much less dangerous and easier to gain access through
 
It’s the same glass that you will find in bus stops and phone boxes where you may have seen it smashed into small pieces on the floor.
