What is safety glass?

Having safety glass installed, particularly in high-risk areas, is a great way of making your home safer when accidents occur. The main benefit of safety glass is that it doesn’t shatter and splinter when it breaks, reducing the potential for nasty cuts or stepping on glass shards.

How is safety glass used?

Safety glass is use for a wide range of applications around the home and office. It is the recommended choice for high-traffic areas, and should also be used in interior doors, windows, showerscreens and even for car windscreens. Safety glass is also a must in areas that are often subject to cyclones and other natural disasters.

Can you provide custom safety glass?

Koala Glass specialises in the installation of custom safety glass. Whether your project is large or small, we can satisfy your needs with custom safety glass made to measure for just about any application around your home or office.

What types of safety glass are available?

There are a range of methods used to make safety glass. Tempered glass is heated and rapidly cooled to improve its strength; laminated glass uses a vinyl inner layer to hold the glass together under impact; and wired glass uses wire mesh fused between two sheets of glass to create heat-resistant glass that is often used in fire doors or in areas that are under high bushfire risk.
