Safety glass ESG, LSG or VSG

The term security includes a variety of requirements. Thus, the properties of safety glasses range from splinter bonding over high strength against mechanical stress to burglary and bullet resistance.

Toughened safety glass (ESG)

Zersprungene ESG Zersprungene ESG im Detail
Tempered safety glass is manufactured from float or cast glass, which has increased thermal shock resistance, increased shock and impact resistance and increased bending strength. For this reason it can be used as a construction element. When the disc breaks, the entire disc dissolves into a network of fragments, which are predominantly blunt edged and loosely connected together. This largely avoids serious injury. These properties of tempered safety glass (ESG) are based on its bias.

Verbundsicherheitsglas, VSGLaminated safety glass (LSG)
Laminated safety glass (LSG) consists of two or more float glass panes firmly joined together by tough-elastic, highly tear-resistant polyvinyl butyral (PVB) sheets. The safety effect of VSG is based on the high tear resistance of the PVB interlayer and its high adhesion to glass. In the event of mechanical overload caused by impact or impact, the glass breaks but the fragments stick to the undamaged PVB layer. As a result, the risk of injury is reduced, and the glazed opening remains closed. The combination of glass and film layers of different thicknesses can provide security against breakthrough, bombardment and explosion. Basically, VSG can also use functional glasses such as sun protection and privacy glasses instead of single panes. Basically, all laminated safety glass units can be equipped as insulating glass with the function for solar and thermal, sound and fire protection.
