Q: I need saftey glass - what is the best option? What is the difference between laminated and toughened glass?

A: Both toughened and laminated glass are forms of safety glass.

Toughened glass is upto five times as strong as ordinary glass which means that it has to be hit much harder in order to break, also when it does break it is into lots of small pieces which are much less dangerous.

Laminated glass has the same strength as ordinary glass but it consists of two pieces of glass with a sandwich of plastic interlayer. If the glass does get broken this interlayer holds the whole piece in place so there is no hole left in the window for an intruder to get in through for example or large free shards.
