Safeguard your property with safety and security glass

One of the major benefits of safety and security glass is that in most cases it’s not easily breakable, and still provides several safety features if it is broken, accidentally or deliberately.

If you are building a new house, office or planning a renovation, then talk with an O’Brien Glass expert to seek advice on what to consider when it comes to safety and security glass products for your project.

Bandit Resistant glass

Whether it’s a house window, a shopfront or a security facility, O’Brien Glass has a security glass that provides the benefits of daylight and transparency with the peace of mind of security – all day, every day.

Our Bandit Resistant glass is typically used in commercial applications such as vulnerable shopfronts, windows, and doors susceptible to break-in. This type of glass is also used in various other ‘at risk’ applications such as pay booths, jewellery counters, and display counters, providing resistance against ‘smash and grab’ theft attempts.

The importance of safety glass in your home

Did you know that the glass used in many older properties still doesn’t meet Australian Standard (AS1288-2021)?

For safety reasons this important standard specifies that safety glass should be used in areas such as certain windows, bathrooms, shower screens and certain doors – any glass where there is a high risk of human impact.

If you’re unsure about what type of glass you have on your property, and want to check, get in contact with the O’Brien Glass team for expert help and advice.

Types of safety glass

Laminate glass, also known as safety glass, has a polyvinyl interlayer for increased strength and safety, which will hold the panel in one piece if broken. Australian Standard AS1288-2021 advises when safety glass needs to be used, for example in high traffic areas such as shopfronts.

Toughened glass can be another type of safety glass, which is heat-strengthened glass. When broken, toughened glass shatters into small pieces to reduce the risk of injury.

For more information on types of glass and how it breaks, read our article here.

Installing safety glass

Safety glass plays an essential role in ensuring homes and businesses are safe and secure.

It’s important to ensure safety and security glass is installed correctly by qualified professionals like our glaziers. We stand behind our workmanship, with our lifetime guarantee. To arrange expert help, get in touch with our team on 1800 018 886.

How much does safety and security glass cost?

The cost of safety or security glass depends on several factors, including the size, type and location of the glass. O’Brien Glass always glaze to the Australian Safety Standard (AS1288:2021), and the standard will denote what thickness or style of glass they need to use for your property, for the safety of you and your family, or your business.

Also, we understand that paying for accidents and emergencies is a frustrating inconvenience. That’s why we aim to make our glass replacement pricing as fair as possible.

We work closely with most major insurance providers, so we know what they need for an accurate and smooth claim.  As we cannot lodge your claim on your behalf, please ensure you contact your broker or insurance company directly to assist with lodging your claim.
