Safety glass is made to be durable and resilient. It has couple types: laminated and tempered. Laminated safety glass consists of a thin flexible plastic film sandwiched between two pieces of glass. Tempered safety glass is a single sheet of glass that has been specially treated with heat and rapidly cooled to improve its strength.

The quality of tempered glass mainly depends on the quality of equipment used and the quality control procedures adopted. In high-impact situations, the plastic core is likely to bend slightly, and the glass surrounding it will change with the center. This flexibility gives laminated safety glass the ability to withstand high impacts.

Flexibility and shatter-resistance are just a few of the benefits of laminated safety glass. Homeowners with this type of glass in their windows enjoy increased safety from UV rays, for example, while keeping their energy bills lower. Laminated safety glass can also prevent UV rays that cause furniture and flooring to fade, ensuring protection from the damaging rays of the sun. It reduces high-frequency sounds, which can be very useful in the big city.
