Solidor Glazing Part 2 – Security features and Certifications

April 6th 2017

When it comes to glass it’s important to take into account the security features and certifications that are on offer as well.  So to help you we’ve listed them below:

1.Low E Glass 

Low E glass works by reflecting the summer heat our and the winter heat in.  It does this by using a thin metallic coating on or in the glass.  Ultimately low E glass is great at increasing the thermal efficiency of your door.  All units available from Solidor are Low E.

2. Argon Filled 

What is Argon I we hear you say?  Put simply…… it’s a non-toxic, odourless gas used on windows.  It works to prevent frost from forming at the bottom of the unit and will also increase the sound insulation of your new Solidor.

All units available from Solidor are Argon filled.

3.  Laminated Glass

You can select to have laminated glass as an additional extra. It’s important to know that laminated glass is a requirement for the Police preferred specification of ‘Secure by Design’.

Laminated glass has two main benefits:-

  • It adds an extra level of security as it holds together when shattered to create a spider web cracking pattern.
  • It increases sound insulation compared to that of an unlaminated glass panel of the same thickness.

4. Kitemarks 

This Kitemark is a UK Product & Service quality certification mark, and although it isn’t a legal requirement, it is universally recognised and is a very highly regarded certification to carry.

The Kitemark indicates that the British Standards Institution have performed independent tests on the product. All of the glass designs available from Solidor carry a BSI Kitemark

So there you have it, not only are the glass designs from Solidor beautiful but they also carry additional security features and certifications.  To see the full range of glass available why not download our brand new glass catalogue here
