Saint Gobain also offers SGG Vetrotech, a range of attack and intrusion prevention glass for residences. This special interlayered glass complies with P6B - P8B attack resistance and BR1 - BR7 / SG1 - SG2 bullet resistance [standards] for windows. “The use of SGG Vetrotech Vetrogard is catching up in residential applications as homeowners increasingly prioritise safety,” says Sisodia.
Thicker, layered glass is in vogue. “We usually prefer double-glazed glass unless better noise control is needed, in which case triple-glazed glass works well,” opines Pooja Bihani, Founder of Spaces and Design. “We use 8-12 mm toughened glass for exteriors for better strength and durability,” adds Eshwar N, EVP Marketing, Casagrand Builder.
