Safty Glass

The two main Safety Glass types Ark Glass Glazing Contractors Supply Only and Supply and Install are:

1) Toughened Safety Glass - Toughened or tempered glass is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering creates balanced internal stresses which cause the glass, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards. The granular chunks are less likely to cause injury. Toughened Safety Glass is 5 times stronger than Annealed Glass. Toughened Safety Glass can be used for Window panes, Door Panels, Balustrades, Table tops shelving etc and comes in thickness 4mm up to 19mm. This product takes 5 working days from point of order.

2) Laminated Safety Glass
- Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), between its two or more layers of glass. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. This produces a characteristic "spider web" cracking pattern when the impact is not enough to completely pierce the glass. Laminated glass is normally used when there is a possibility of human impact or where the glass could fall if shattered. Skylight glazing and automobile windshields typically use laminated glass. In geographical areas requiring hurricane-resistant construction, laminated glass is often used in exterior storefronts, curtain walls and windows. The PVB interlayer also gives the glass a much higher sound isolation rating, due to the damping effect, and also blocks 99% of incoming UV radiation. Laminated Safety Glass can be used in all applications as Toughened Safety Glass and is a stock item and can be cut while you wait. Laminated Safety Glass comes in thickness 4.4mm up to 45mm and beyond.

Splashbacks

One of the main purposes of splashbacks, is to replace tiles, mainly in Kitchens and bathrooms, due to the fact that no grout is needed, creating a much more hygienic and easy to clean finish.

Glass splashbacks also have the benefit of the made to measure aspect, meaning that awkward areas can be filled precisely and cost effectively. Glass splashbacks and glass worktops are made from a specifically toughened glass, which is heat treated to withstand enormous pressure and will be durable enough to feature in a prominent place and could easily be used next to an oven without the danger of breaking. All glass splashbacks and worktops are manufactured to order.

The colour is spray painted onto the back of the glass, with a paint specially made to bond to the glass, which won't peel or flake. We use a low-iron glass, either Pilkington Optiwhite or Diamant from Saint-Gobain, as this is more optically clear than normal glass.

It provides a clearer definition of the colour chosen; as normal clear glass has an inherent green characteristic which becomes more pronounced the thicker the glass. This is particularly important if splashbacks need to match the thicker work surfaces in a kitchen for example.

Both thicknesses of glass have different iron content if using normal clear glass, so the 19mm will appear greener, in turn affecting the paint colour.

This issue is drastically reduced when using low-iron glass, rendering both thicknesses almost the same colour when painted. The choice is huge with over 200 standard RALcolours and if you want the wow factor we now offer a range of sparkle finishes including Silver, Gold, Rainbow, Red, Blue, Green and many more!

Sparkle splashbacks are priced at 25% more than standard RAL colours
