ASPIS-LAM® SAFETY PA
ASPIS-LAM® SAFETY PA: SAFETY GLAZING
Certified ASPIS-LAM® SAFETY PA increases protection against accidental injuries. An ASPIS-LAM® of 9 mm thickness is required, in order to have impact resistant glazing that provides resistance against a violent impact, such as a ball thrown on a window, which will bounce back, without causing any damage. This impact resistant glazing has a range of levels that professionals identify between classes P1A to P5A. These types of glass can withstand attacks by amateur burglary attempts as well.
Today, there are 2 European standards:
European standard EN 356 for testing and classifying security glazing, with resistance to burglary.
European standard EN 1627, for burglar resistance of windows, doors and shutters.
PURPOSE OF THE STANDARDS
The ASPIS-LAM® series is a family of laminated glasses using various types of foils and glass panes. All products meet the requirements of CE marking, but some family products are followed by additional standards that are needed in order to:
- Have a guide for the security levels required for the materials used.
- Have a guarantee that the materials used comply with these standards.
- Be able to compare products with equal security level.
For example, the first prerequisite for the bullet-resistant glazing has to comply with Factory Production Control (FPC) LEVEL 1.
- Minimize damage to the glass surface
- Ease of cleaning after the end of the work
- Saving money that would be spent on cleaning glasses
