RANGE VIT PROTECT | OURS attack-resistant laminated glazing

STOP CHOC PLUS

The primary function of attack-resistant glass is to, insofar as possible, prevent or delay entry by an intruder.

Attack-resistant laminated glazing is made up of one or more sheets of glass. These sheets are bonded together using plastic (PVB) interlayers, the purpose of which is to keep the glazing in place once it has been broken and make it difficult for an intruder to enter. Bonding a large number of PVB films to thick sheets of glass achieves good performance.

Technical specifications

As such, the primary function of attack-resistant glass is to prevent, or at least, delay entry by an intruder. It may be assembled as insulating glazing with a low-emission or solar control counter face, in order to achieve good thermal and/or solar performance. It may be required for premises such as:

  • Retail
  • Jewellers
  • Premises housing high-value items
  • Shop windows
  • Museums
  • Banks
  • Tobacconists
  • Premises without shutters

With up to class P7B available in stock, and others to order, we can offer you a whole range of attack-resistant glazing. Class P5A is the one most frequently used in the residential sector. Level 4A is the minimal protection required by the APSAD (Plenary Assembly of Property Insurance Companies). The main factor determining the class of resistance to attack of laminated glazing is the value of goods housed in the building. As such, it is generally the insurer who determines the class of the glazing to be fitted.
