Safety/Toughen Glass Dog Doors
Safety glass is very common among sliding doors or windows. This glass is a lot stronger compared to other glass and should be able to take a few hits, but if the impact is great, this glass will shatter into little pieces just like your car windows. Most of the safety glass is 4mm/5mm, anything below that will need an upgrade to a thicker glass for safety reasons for your pet door.
This glass will not be able to be cut. It will shatter into many pieces, the only way to do it is to replace the original panel to a panel that already has the hole cut in it.
When it comes to Replacement, we will always ensure our glass is top quality and meets the Australia safety standard. To find out if it’s safety glass or not, all you need to look for is a stamp or writing on the glass.
By Australian law, all safety glass requires a stamp on the bottom corner of the glass, either left or right. Make sure you look carefully as sometimes the stamps could be faded away, Also by Australian law, all sliding doors must either be safety glass or laminated glass.
If you do find a stamp on the glass, please speak to one of our experts for more. There are pros and cons of safety glass and laminate. Safety glass is very strong compared to laminate but upon impact, it will shatter and this would not be very good if you have someone determined to break that, it can be done in seconds.
Even though a piece of laminate will have a higher chance of cracks, but upon impact, the glass will stick together just like your car windshield. It will definitely take someone longer to break in. So it is entirely up to you if you still want to upgrade to a piece of safety glass or not.
Our glass dog door installation services are backed with warranty, which means you can rest assured knowing the jobs are done right.
Laminated Glass Dog Doors
If you do not find any stamps on the glass, most likely it would be a piece of laminated glass. Chances of you having either laminate or safety are 50/50. Laminated glass generally is 6.38mm thick with an interlayer of PVB in between. We are able to cut up to 10mm laminate. Some glaziers like to use safety and some like to use lami.
We can cut laminated glass on the spot and we will have 100% guarantee it will be a perfect cut, if not we will replace the glass free of charge. Our experienced experts have been in this industry for a long time, and we are proud to offer this service for our customers, a lot of other companies would not be able to do that and most of the time they will ask you to replace the glass without giving you any option.
