AUSTRALIAN STANDARD SAFETY GLASS

The following standards apply for the use of safety glass in shower screens

AS1288

AS2208

 

TOUGHENED GLASS

·         Traditionally used in semi frameless and frameless shower screens.

·         Produced by passing cut-to-size float glass through a heat furnace, this process strengthens the glass, producing glass 4-5 times stronger than ordinary float glass.

·         Toughened glass can still be broken, however if it does break, it shatters into small fragments which in effect minimises the risk of injury caused by glass splinters.

 

 

LAMINATED GLASS

·         Traditionally used in fully framed shower screens.

·         Usually made from two pieces of 3mm float glass with a 0.38 poly vinyl butryal (PVB) interlayer.

·         The interlayer does not alter the transparency of the glass.

·         The interlayer prevents the glass from disintegrating when broken.
