Stained & Leaded Glass Design Manchester
During the design process a number of important issues need to be taken into account.
For example the position and size of the window can affect the available light within the room/property and security and safety are of prime concern especially in relation to building regulations regarding the use of safety glass within certain areas of the home.
Toughened & Laminated Safety Glass
Toughened glass is made by a process which makes it approximately 3 or 4 times more resistant to breaking.
This is just one of the many ways that are team can provide more security to your glass window.
Laminated is heavier than toughened glass and is made by sandwiching sheets of thinner glass around a plastic layer. When struck, laminated glass will crack but should remain in one piece, which will again help with the security of both commercial and domestic properties.
