Hammerglass UK Professionals
If you’re looking for a way to fortify your property, then installing Hammerglass is a must. Hammerglass has a number of benefits over using traditional glass. Not only is it around 300 times stronger, but it’s around half as heavy. This lightweight material has the ability to strengthen your domestic or commercial premises and remove the vulnerability of your existing windows.
Our Hammerglass UK range has been accredited with the Secured By Design certification. This is a police-backed initiative which was developed to ‘design out crime’. Our Hammerglass products have also achieved BS EN 356, Security Class P8B – this is the highest safety rating possible for anti-burglary products such as grilles or shutters. How does our Hammerglass achieve this superior standard of protection? Well, the testing methods are incredibly rigorous and are designed by provide customers with maximum peace of mind that they’ve invested in the most advanced security technology in the market.
Standard types of glass must typically withstand 70 blows with an axe before being awarded the BS EN 356 accreditation. However, as premier Hammerglass suppliers, we are delighted to confirm that with our particular Hammerglass, 72 blows were used during testing at the Swedish National Testing and Research Institute. At this point, testing officials were forced to give up and use a forklift truck to remove the axe which was lodged in the Hammerglass.

What is Hammerglass?
Hammerglass is developed using nano technology which coats a polycarbonate sheet to produce a material that is almost unbreakable even when using incredible brute force. The surface area of Hammerglass is treated with silicon oxide so that it can withstand chemical attacks, but is easy to clean whilst being scratch-resistant too. If graffiti is a problem in your area, then Hammerglass is the perfect solution as detergents will easily remove paint, tags or other debris which has soiled the surface of your exterior. You can also benefit from 99.96% UV protection ensuring that your Hammerglass doesn’t discolour or cloud even when exposed to the strongest of sunlight. In terms of fire protection, you’ll also consider this to be an excellent feature of your health and safety strategies as Hammerglass doesn’t accelerate the spread of flames.
