Zamil Glass Industries introduces new range of safety and security glass through latest laminated glass production technology

The fully automated lamination line is capable of producing a full range of laminated safety and security glass, providing architects, consultants and aluminum fabricators with an expanded choice in durable glazing materials.

At the same time, the 'LAM-LITE' offering satisfies a growing demand for enhancing industrial, business and residential security.

According to Mr Salah Al-Otaibi, General Manager of ZGI, the principle feature of ZGI LAM-LITE glass is its safety performance level under impact enabling typical applications to include locations where safety glazing is required, such as doors, windows, showers and bath door enclosures, fixed glazed panels, balconies, panoramic elevators as well as, sports stadiums, atriums and skylights.

"LAM-LITE is a composite glass comprising at least two glass lites and one or more interlayers of tough PVB (poly-vinyl-butyral). The glass lites can be annealed, heat strengthened, tempered, tinted, reflective or patterned," said Mr Al-Otaibi. "By using clear, coloured and patterned PVB in varying thickness, our manufacturing capabilities extend to bullet resistance glass "SECURA-LITE" and XIR-Laminated high performance glass in accordance with approved international institutes and laboratories."

"Should the LAM-LITE glass become impacted, any glass fragments will remain in place by adhering to the PVB interlayer minimizing the risk of serious cuts or injuries. The PVB interlayer also absorbs the energy impact reducing the risk of penetrating the glass unit. Even if the glass is broken, it will stay in place, remains weather tight, and can be replaced with ease," he added.

ZGI Laminated LAM-LITE has introduced the XIR-Laminated glazing system under license from South Wall's Technologies Inc. USA, whose products are used in a number of architectural aspects to enhance optical and thermal performance characteristics, improve user comfort and reduce energy costs.

The range of security glass "SECURA-LITE" available includes burglar-resistant LAM-LITE; bullet-resistant LAM-LITE; and blast-resistant Laminated Glass "LAM-LITE", which can substantially reduce injury from flying glass resulting from direct blast shock waves, thereby maintaining the integrity of a building and safeguarding against interior damage.

In addition LAM-LITE offers improved detention and security for mid-level security requirements while at the same time providing unobstructed vision by eliminating the confined look of bars and metal screens. Institutional glazing offers prolonged physical impact resistance and extends the time required for penetration.
