Safety/Security/Impact Glass

Crimsafe Security Screens

Crimsafe North America offers aesthetically appealing security and hurricane protection screens and doors fabricated with a 304-grade hi-tensile stainless steel woven mesh.  This mesh is secured within a structural grade aluminum frame using an internationally patented screw clamp design.  These products have increased in demand every year as crime continues to increase and homeowners become increasingly concerned with safety and storm protection.  Crimsafe is expanding and looking to add Dealers and Licensed Fabricators throughout North America.

 

Unlike traditional wrought iron security doors, burglar bars, or hurricane shutters, Crimsafe Security Screens are stylishly designed to complement any décor.  More importantly, Crimsafe security screens and doors are knife resistant, bash resistant, pry-resistant, corrosion-resistant, and nearly impenetrable.  Crimsafe offers the ultimate in design flexibility; offering a full line of hinged doors, sliding doors, sliding window screens, fixed window screens, Safe-S-Cape® (emergency exits), bi-fold doors, bi-fold windows, and patio enclosures.

Sudden Impact

High performance interlayer material POLYLAM resin is coated 0.09" in thickness on surface 3 of a completed IGU via a large gas filling hole, and cured with IR heat within 15 minutes for making instant Impact rated IGU passing and exceeding MIAMI-DADE testing protocols. SUDDEN IMPACT glazing and IGU can uniquely pass large missile and cycling tests with all types of glass including: annealed, heat-strengthened, or even fully tempered glass. Your expensive automated IG line can also work as your LG line on second shift or once the days' IG production is completed.

STRATO® RIGIDO

Satinal is proud to announce the launch of STRATO® RIGIDO, its first structural laminating interlayer.

STRATO® RIGIDO is compliant with EN 16613 certification so, thanks to its certified structural characteristics, it is suitable to withstand large loadings without losing its rigidity.

STRATO® RIGIDO provides maximum protection against strong impacts: the breakage of the glass component does not affect the whole laminated structure.

This interlayer, compatible with STRATO® CLEAR and COLOUR System, not only grants structural and rigidity characteristics to the glass, but also provides other properties, such as colour, transparency, UV protection, sound insulation, solar control and bird safety.

Other characteristics of STRATO® RIGIDO are: 

·        Structural post-breakage resistance across a wide range of low and high temperatures

·        Excellent open-edge stability, not subject to moisture infiltrations

·        Compatibility with STRATO® CLEAR and STRATO® COLOUR system

·        Possibility to use thinner glasses, reducing costs and carbon footprint

·        Developed for hurricane glazing, ballistic resistance, facades, balustrades, stairs and partitions

Guardian Bird1st™ Etch glass

Guardian Glass North America now offers Guardian Bird1st Etch glass in four distinct bird-friendly patterns for exterior building applications.

Guardian Bird1st Etch glass joins Guardian Glass’ family of bird-friendly products to give architects additional options to achieve their desired design aesthetic and glass performance while reducing the likelihood of bird collisions with windows.

By pairing a Bird1st Etch pattern on surface 1 and a Guardian SunGuard® low-E coating on surface 2 of an insulating glass unit, the project can achieve desired energy performance while meeting bird-friendly standards.

Available in four different patterns on translucent glass, Guardian Bird1st Etch glass products include Threat Factor scores1 to quantify collision-avoidance effectiveness.

These products are available on Guardian UltraClear® low-iron glass and standard clear glass and can be paired with Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral® 68, SNX 62/27 and SNX 51/23 coatings on the same lite of glass. The glass can be heat-treated and used with laminated glass for safety. Guardian Bird1st Etch glass is currently available in 96”x130” size on 6mm float glass through the Guardian Select® Fabricator network.
