Safety and Security glass
Security glass is used in cases when we want to protect a given building, while also preserving the aesthetic of the elewation or partition walls by eliminating window bars, shutters or roller blinds.
Safety glass protects against injury at breakage, making it less possible to break the glass when lamming a door or window.
Types of safety glass:
- wire mesh reinforced patterned,
- wire mesh reinforced polished

Temporary protection against break-in attempts
It would appear that glass in windows are the weakest element of a house with regard to prevention of burglaries. Modern solutions however, allow for the successful temporary prevention of burglary. This is realized by the application of laminated glass composed of 2 glass panes and several layers of PVB foil between the panes depending on the level of danger. All glass units on offer fulfil the requirements of EN 356 standard.
Protection against injury from breaking glass
The threat of injury during glass breakage exists in any place where the users of a building are in direct contact with glass partitions, especially in areas of communication.
In order to prevent such danger Press Glass proposes 2 types of solutions:
- laminated safety glass, which thanks to its construction remains in its frame or bolted elements after the impact of a blow or smashing
- tempered glass ESG, which after being hit breaks into small particles of blunt edges.
All glass units on offer fulfil the norms of EN 12600 specifications.
Reduction of risk regarding cracks
If, due to the conditions of use, there is a threat of breakage in the glass units it is necessary to use laminated glass. Thanks to the properties of laminated glass, the glass panes stay safely in the window frame or bolted elements even after a blow or smashing.
We constantly modify our manufacturing processes and change habits to limit the negative effect on the environment.
In order to facilitate the changes, we have adopted ISO 14001, the worldwide management system for environmental protection.
