EnduraStorm is the perfect glass option for regions that are subject to heavy storms and cyclones. It is manufactured to resist heavy projectiles being thrown by extreme weather.
Woods Glass have installed this product in locations such as Apia in Samoa.
Laminated glass can be made to resist extreme wind and airborne flying debris that occurs during a cyclone. In such situations the glass must withstand penetration from a 4kg, 100x50mm timber plank travelling at 15m/s or more. To do this the interlayer must be strong and thick.
The glass is usually made up of two glass sheets bonded together with a thick interlayer. Sometimes the glass is extra thick as the wind pressures are very high in cyclone conditions.
The glass is usually made up of two glass sheets bonded together with a thick PVB interlayer. Sometimes the glass is extra thick as the wind pressures are very high in cyclone conditions. The frame design is critical in order to equally resist the force imposed. All glass must be engineered to specific code and design, please contact Woods Glass to find out more information.
Normally when cleaning glass, a vinegar-based glass cleaner or mild dish soap and water with a soft, lint-free cloth or paper products is recommended. A squeegee or soft cloth may be carefully used to dry the glass and help avoid water spots.
It is not recommended to use petroleum-based cleaners or solvents as they can streak the glass and weaken the seal between the glass and frame. Avoid washing in direct sunlight to reduce streaking on the glass.
Never use razor blades, steel wool, putty knives or abrasive pads as they may damage the glass, particularly on toughened glass.
Different coloured tints are available in EnduraStorm such as grey, green, blue, red and white. Woods are able to supply many more colours so please contact us to discuss special requirements.
