What is LEXAN™ high-security glazing?
High-security glazing products are glazing products, like glass windows, that meet specific building codes. Safety glass is protective glass with additional safety features. The glass is reinforced to resist or mitigate damage and poses less danger when it breaks. This makes the protective glass a perfect candidate for safety glazing. SAIC has different sheets for safety and high-security glazing.
Safety glazing sheets don’t shatter or splinter, significantly reducing the risk of accidental injury in applications like internal partitions and doors. The security glazing is ideal for safety screening in sports stadiums and other outdoor applications, like acoustic screens for insulation from traffic noise in built-up areas.
Products for safety glazing
LEXAN™ Solid Sheet – Standard
Based on high-performance LEXAN™ resin, SABIC’s LEXAN™ Solid Standard Sheet products offer excellent clarity with attractive aesthetic properties and high impact strength. They are also easy to design and form. LEXAN™ standard sheet products combine excellent impact performance and stiffness with thermoforming or cold forming ease. They offer a consistent, high-quality surface and cost-effective part differentiation through wide colour availability.
LEXAN™ Solid Sheet - High Optical Quality
SABIC offers high optical quality LEXAN™ Sheet products provide high-impact strength, are lightweight, have spall protection and coating ability for safety glazing. High optical quality LEXAN™ sheets meet the toughest standards when it comes to specks, bubbles, lints and fibers, distortion and ripple. That’s why SABIC has been a key supplier of security glazing to the optical and lamination industries for many years.
LEXAN™ Solid Sheet - UV Protected
SABIC’s transparent LEXAN™ sheets come with UV, provide remarkable clarity, and have excellent weathering properties. This makes them an ideal candidate for security glazing. This polycarbonate safety glazing comes with UV protection on both sides and provides remarkable clarity - even after many years of intense sunlight and weather extremes.
LEXAN™ Solid Sheet - Solar Control Sheet
SABIC’s LEXAN™ Solar Control Sheet products are virtually unbreakable with UV protection on both sides. This impact-resistant glazing provides easy installation and forming. LEXAN™ Solar Control sheet for heat-management glazing blocks out heat but lets in high light levels. Proprietary resin additives manage the heat rather than expensive and fragile coatings. This makes the solar control properties virtually permanent and perfect for security glazing.
LEXAN™ MARGARD™ Coated Sheet
Virtually unbreakable LEXAN™ MARGARD™ sheet materials are an excellent choice in areas with vandalism risk. These anti-vandal glazing can help prevent burglars from breaking in, delaying where they give up or are detected. This high-security glazing protects premises and property and eliminates re-glazing costs. They also allow frequent cleaning or damage-free removal of graffiti.
