Buildings That Use Custom Glass
Many common buildings, both commercial and residential, require security with regards to their custom glass elements. Airports have large windows for passengers to see incoming flights, but there may also be security checkpoints. Government buildings and large medical facilities have security checkpoints as well as service windows for employees to see their customers. Movie theaters have large glass structures for employees to take money, while banks use custom glass at drive-throughs.
Improved Visibility for Customers and Employees
Glass walls and doors made of custom glass not only look great, but they also offer security benefits for the building’s owners. These interior design elements improve visibility for customers and employees, thereby enhancing customer interactions while keeping employees safe. For example, a bank drive-through needs secure custom glass structures so employees can see incoming vehicles, but they also need protection because of the cash transactions they work with on a daily basis.
Enhanced Visibility for Security Personnel
No one wants to have a tense security issue on their property. Custom glass improves visibility for security personnel to observe what’s going on and take action when a safety issue presents itself. Safety glass and tempered glass create easy sightlines, a 360-degree view if necessary, and a barrier between security personnel and any perpetrators who may present a danger to staff behind the glass.
Better Sightlines for Security Cameras
Custom glass design elements improve sightlines for security cameras. Better visuals on cameras may only work for glass that isn’t tinted unless security cameras have special filters to see infrared light. Tempered glass on windows, doors, and security kiosks lets in just as much light and infrared as standard glass, making it an excellent choice for custom glass when it comes to added security for your property.
Harder to Break
Custom glass features are difficult to break without using an extraordinary amount of force. Tempered glass is extremely durable, up to four times stronger than standard glass. Plus, tempered glass shatters into small pieces, thereby reducing the risks of anyone getting a major injury if someone breaks the custom glass. If the tempered glass is thick enough, it may prevent burglaries and intrusions.
