There is indeed no place like home – it is that haven wherein one retires for much-needed peace and relaxation. And where the love and laughter shared between the four walls is what makes a home a haven, it is the robust build of the structure that makes the haven a safe one.
One of the ways of ensuring that your home is the safest place for you and your family is by opting for safety window solutions. After all, glass as a construction material has come a long way from its humble nature of fragility. Modern-day safety window solutions incorporate innovative glass solutions, exclusively designed to enhance the safety factor and multi-point locking systems that intrude a massive challenge. And what’s more, the plethora of design choices ensure that your home stays protected in style.
The Apt Safety Window Solutions
Resolving issues of safety are critical for the set-up of your homes. And the best way to enhance the safety quotient of your living space is to opt for safety glass for your windows. Laminated glass and toughened glass are two of the most popular types of safety glass available in the market. Safety glass is processed through chemical or thermal treatments to make it highly impact-resistant and durable, hence, the resulting glass is superior to standard glass.
Both toughened glass and laminated glass provide safety and defend properties in their unique ways, yet they are different in how they react to an overwhelming impact. Where toughened safety glass breaks into granular chunks, laminated safety glass pieces remain stuck to the special PVB (Poly Vinyl Butyral) layer that holds the two glass panes together.
Given below are the reasons why you should opt for safety window solutions for your home.
The obvious yet the most important reason to opt for safety window solutions would be the safety factor. The ordinary glass in your window is prone to breakage. When regular glass breaks, the result is jagged shards that can easily cause severe and sometimes even fatal injuries. Ordinary glass windows are a considerable safety risk, especially if there are young children in your home. By opting for safety glass for your windows, you can eliminate some of these risks. In the rare occasions of breakage, safety glass either shatters into blunt, pebble-like pieces as in case of toughened safety glass or the pieces stick to the glass without shattering as is the case with laminated safety glass.
Mostly, windows are the openings through which many intruders and burglars enter a home. By incorporating safety window solutions in your homes in the form of safety glass and multi-point locking mechanisms, you can help prevent their intrusion. Where safety glass is highly impact-resistant (almost 4 to 5 times stronger than ordinary glass), multi-point locking systems offer greater security than a standard door lock.
Your home is meant to provide you with comfort and peace, away from the hustle and bustle of the world outside. This is why its interiors must be calm and relaxing. The good news is safety window solutions can even keep you safe from harmful noise pollution. Safety glass is thicker than traditional glass which allows it to block out unwanted noise. Moreover, such windows are often sealed air-tight using high-grade silicone sealants. This further blocks out the most common medium through which sound may travel into your home (air).
One of the most remarkable qualities of safety glass is its unparalleled durability. If your home is located in an area that is usually subjected to bad and erratic weather phenomena like strong winds and heavy rains, opting for safety window solutions is a must. Even in the most volatile weather, safety glass in your windows will remain in the frame. In the occasion of breakage, it will not break into injurious shards, thereby proving to be a benign and robust choice.
Protection against UV Rays
Ultraviolet (UV) rays can have harmful effects on your skin as well as on the interiors of your home. By incorporating safety glass in the windows of your home, you will be able to protect your family from the ill-effects of UV rays. Moreover, safety glass will also prevent your furniture and carpets from fading due to exposure to UV rays.
