Premier Security Consultants based in Ilford, Essex has agreed a deal to become an official supplier of Hammerglass products.
Hammerglass, which is made by specialists in Sweden, is 300 times stronger than glass and is half the weight. It is available in 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17 and 20 mm sheets, and is recognised and licensed by Secured by Design and certified according to BS EN 356, Security Class P8B, which is equivalent to the highest safety rating for anti-burglary grilles and rolling shutters.
To obtain this classification the glass must withstand 70 blows with an axe. In the case of Hammerglass, the Swedish National Testing and Research Institute gave up the test after 72 blows and then had to use a forklift truck twice to pull the axe out of the glass!
Glazed doors and windows are the most vulnerable part of any building design. However, in the retail market, they are crucial to displaying merchandise as well as contributing to the overall aesthetics of a shop front.
Smash and Grab burglaries are favoured by thieves due to the small amount of time it takes to carry out and the high-value reward that comes with it.
Latest Metropolitan Police figures show that moped-enabled crime has risen from1,053 in 2014 to 7,668 in 2017. So how can smash and grab robberies be prevented?
Carrying out attacks with an axe, sledgehammer, brick or other devices, thieves can break through a shopfront window in as little as 20 seconds.
This problem is completely eliminated with Hammerglass.
Hammerglass is 300 times stronger than normal glass and is tested to Security Class P8B (equivalent to the highest safety rating for grilles and roller shutters).
Featuring a unique coating of silicon oxide, Hammerglass is almost as resistant to scratches as normal glass, providing a high level of protection with all the aesthetic properties of normal glass.
