South Gate, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
In an ongoing effort to provide stylish and safe glass solutions, Glasswerks Inc. -- a leader in commercial and architectural glass fabrication -- offers DuPont’s ballistics-resistant glazing compositions for laminated glass interlayers.
DuPont™ SentryGlas® interlayers help builders and architects meet building codes and bring new levels of performance to facades, curtain walls, canopies, rails and wind-resistant glazing. DuPont™ SentryGlas® ionoplast interlayers, Butacite® PVBinterlayers and Spallshield® composites are used in a variety of architectural and automotive applications.
Glasswerks Inc. is an official laminator of DuPont™ SentryGlas® glass, and Glasswerks’ laminated glass products with DuPont™ interlayers can be used for bullet-proof glass, hurricane glass, automotive windshields, and in just about any situation where windows or other decorative glass need to adhere to the strictest safety standards.
“Safety glass is on everyone’s mind after a glass enclosure stayed in tact when a polar bear at a Netherlands zoo tried to shatter it with a rock in early June,” says Ed Rosengrant, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Glasswerks. “We want our current and potential customers to know that we take glass safety very seriously.”
Tests have been performed showing that DuPont™ interlayer products can be used in well-constructed laminates to help achieve the desired level of ballistics resistance for the most frequently referenced test standards, including the NIJ Standard threat levels, specified Indoor UL Standard threat levels, and two of the EN 1063 Standard threat levels.
