Are glass doors safe?
There was a time when glass doors used to strike fear into the hearts of every parent (and large dog owners) across the country.
Traditionally glass has been a brittle material with a tendency to shatter into large, jagged and sharp shards often with the ability to seriously injure. Accidents with glass could be life changing.
These days, double glazing is a far cry from the dangerous glazing of old. Thanks to huge advances in both home security and glass technology you now have glass doors that are highly toughened and, in the rare case of a break, will shatter into a safer format thanks to the various films and coatings that are applied during manufacture.
Within the door casing there are a series of high security measures to prevent easy access at any one point. Even the hinges are carefully engineered to prevent any weak spots.
