Cardinal Laminated Glass – GLASS FOR SECURITY AND SAFETY

Safety, security and serenity
Ordinary annealed glass breaks easily. Tempered glass, while stronger, shatters under a greater impact. But laminated glass is different. If laminated glass is broken, the vinyl interlayer remains in the frame, with glass fragments adhering to the interlayer. This provides a strong barrier against forced entry and cannot be cut from one side only, which renders glasscutters useless. Cardinal’s laminated glass meets rigorous industry codes, including the American Society of Testing Materials standard for preventing forced entry (ASTM F1233) and the burglary resistant guidelines issued by Underwriters Laboratories (UL972). Our laminated glass is customized to meet the requirements of any security application, providing the best options available.
