About This Program

This presentation will focus on a growing need for security glazing to protect people and property from both man-made and natural threats. Laminated glass can provide intrusion resistance, as well as protection from flying glass that occurs after a bomb blast or wind-borne debris impact. Industry standards for testing and specifying security glazing will be reviewed, including the new ASTM F3561 standard for forced-entry-resistance. The physical and performance characteristics of PVB and ionoplast interlayers will be presented, including interlayer stiffness, strength, and thickness and color options.

Session Takeaways

  • Recognize the growing concern for terrorist attacks, including shootings in schools.
  • Understand how laminated glass provides intrusion, blast, ballistics, and wind-borne debris protection.
  • Identify test standards and requirements for security applications, including the new ASTM F3561 forced-entry-standard
  • Identify architectural applications where security glazing is required, including courthouses and embassies
