Architects are incorporating more glass in buildings for better aesthetics,
improved daylighting, and occupancy comfort. Despite these benefits,
glass is also the most vulnerable component of the building envelope when
it comes to attacks by intruders. The use of laminated glass not only offers
improved safety, but also can help to prevent intrusion. Laminated glass
can be designed for enhanced performance beyond basic safety to provide burglary and forced entry resistance, as well as bullet resistance.
