Secondary glazing from Selectaglaze ensures safety and security

  • 6 Nov 2017

Secondary glazing from Selectaglaze can deliver an unseen level of security to any property. By creating a second barrier of protection from the inside, it can be used to secure the contents of a building.

Whether it be of high value objects or extremely sensitive data or even the people within, Selectaglaze’s secondary glazing could provide the perfect solution for your security needs.

Ideal for the risk of physical attack, by the secondary glazing working as a second barrier to entry. Any would-be attacker would have to break through the primary window first before working through the breached opening to attack the secondary glazing, by which time any vibration alarms will have been activated. 

In terms of explosion threat, secondary glazing can protect occupants and contents by containing flying shards of glass from the breakup of the primary window under the blast load.

Fixings, frame, locks and glass are all designed to work together by deflecting and yielding, thus absorbing the blast wave. PVB interlayers used in the laminated glass composition stretch and contain the blast.

Any danger from a firearm attack can be eliminated, by the several layers of glass of various thicknesses being laminated together. The front layers of glass are designed to shatter, thereby absorbing the initial impact energy and the subsequent glass and interlayers absorb the lower level shock waves. 

The fire resistant quality of the glazing ensures it can deal with this danger as well, as it provides a protected escape route for occupants.

Selectaglaze secondary glazing units have been installed at Banqueting House in London.

This is vital; as the building contains a grandiose ceiling painting from artist Rubens, historic architectural features and, of courses, all the people who visit and work there.

This replaced the blast net curtains, as well as providing a significant level of noise insulation. Testing was undertaken for the biggest single casement to be blast tested in the UK.

You can find Selectaglaze at the UK Security Expo from the 29th – 30th November. Held at the London Olympia, they are on stand L66, where Selectaglaze Technical Advisors will be on hand to answer any secondary glazing queries you may have.
