MULTI-GLASS * Safety Glass:
Consider the Following:
A one half-ounce bullet from a 30-06 rifle has a tremendous impact. A 20-pound steel scrap exploding out of a furnace can also provide a lethal strike. However, the steel scrap has 640 times the mass of a one half-ounce slug. Therefore, the impact momentum (inertia) in the scrap can be over 36 times higher than the most powerful gun. Proper protection can only be achieved by using a penetration resistant product, such as, MULTI-GLASS*, that is designed to stop heavier objects.
Dispelling a Myth:
Some people believe that by tempering laminated glass, it is able to withstand a greater impact. In reality, adding tempered plate to a composite glass reduces penetration protection, and when fractured, it becomes a safety issue due to the lack of visibility.
MULTI-GLASS* Safety Glass provides protection from breakthrough or penetration of flying objects, even after the glass fractures. Unlike laminated tempered glass, visibility is maintained even after fracture of the glass. Therefore, replacement of the window can be scheduled on the "down turn" of the mill, when a spare is available, or at the first opportunity.
