The VIT group offers a wide range of innovative and secure glazing solutions for professionals in the building and industrial sectors.
The security and protection of goods has become an important issue for retailers. Security glazing is an essential solution for shop windows and shop fronts, particularly in town centres. The VIT Group puts its expertise in innovative, high-performance glazing at your service, offering you enhanced protection.
What is safety glazing ?
Security glazing is an advanced technology incorporating resistant materials such as toughened or laminated glass, designed to delay breakage of the glazing in the event of violent impact or attempted break-in. In the event of breakage, the glazing remains in place, preventing any intrusion or injury.
What security glazing products does the VIT group offer ?
In its VIT Protect range, the VIT group offers you 3 burglar-proof products:
This bullet-proof laminated glass mainly ensures personal safety by retaining bullets when they are fired at the window. VIT STOP BULLET is available in the NS range (does not generate damaging splinters) and the S range (can generate damaging splinters) to suit all your projects and needs.
This security glazing is perfect for use in police stations, gendarmerie stations, banks, courthouses and other places vulnerable to break-ins or attacks by firearms.
This laminated glass resists impact thanks to the plastic interlayers (PVB or EVA) that hold it in place after it has been broken. This glass is perfect for use in shop windows and shop fronts.
This laminated glass is a derivative of our VIT STOP CHOC glass, offering greater resistance to burglary and greater safety in the event of impact or breakage thanks to the greater number of PVB interlayers. This glass can be combined with insulating glass where necessary. It is perfect for use in jewellery stores, premises housing valuables, banks and other sensitive locations.
What is a PVB interlayer ?
PVB stands for Poly Vinyl Butyral, a material derived from plastic. In technical and professional glazing, PVB is used to join two or more layers of glazing. Like an extra-strong glue, PVB holds together the different pieces of glass despite splinters, impacts or attempted break-ins. Combining a large number of PVB films with thicker panes of glass gives better performance.
