Why is safety glass required for sliding doors?
Depending on when your door was manufactured the glass could be ordinary annealed or safety glass. All new and replacement glass must be some type of safety glass to comply with the current Australian Standards.
Laminated glass for sliding doors
Laminated safety glass is the best alternative for most glass installations in sliding doors. It consists of two sheets of float glass laminated together with a plastic interlayer to provide a safe product when broken.
In most circumstances the glass only cracks and remains in position, which not only prevents injuries but also offers improved security in break and enter situations.

The dangers of broken glass
Unfortunately glass breakage is probably one of the most common things that can go wrong with sliding glass doors. Usually caused by some type of impact broken glass in doors can present a very dangerous situation.
Upgrade to safety glass
Annealed glass is very dangerous and presents a real danger when sliding glass doors are mistaken for an open pathway. Many children and adults have made this mistake and walked or even ran through the glass with devastating results.
Unfortunately our staff are regularly exposed to these disturbing scenes and we can not emphasise enough the danger of this type of glass.
Valiant provide an upgrade service where we replace these old types of glass to comply with the new standards.
