Stratified glass for general safety Evo.Safe
SAV2000 Armour-plated glass installations make our homes a highly protected environment in cases of shattering glass: The plastic sheet inserted within the glass “captures”all flying glass created during breakage avoiding in this way any type of injury which may occur.
The European norm UNI EN 12600 E establishes the impact performance to be calculated by following an efficiency test called pendulum test. It consists in launching a semi-rigid object against the sheet simulating in this way a human body impact.
The classification estabilish for the distinction between fall height and breakage type.
1) 1200 mm
2) 450 mm
3) 190 mm
A) Breaking with separate fragments (float glass. thermally hardened and chemically tempered:
B) Breakage with compact fragments (laminated glass, armored, clear float with adhesive film);
C) Disintegration into small particles (thermally tempered glass).
A laminated glass is classified as 1B1 if it resists to impact from a falling height of 1200 mm without allowing penetration.
A laminated glass is classified 2B2 if it resists to impact from a fall height of 450 mm without allowing penetration.
A thermally tempered glass is classified as 1C1 if it resists to impact from a fall of 1200 mm without breaking.
Advantages of laminated glass simple safety
- integration of thermal insulation and anti-lesion characteristics;
- useful in high-risk applications (shower enclosures, doors and windows), especially in the presence of children and wherever there is a risk of falling into the void.
