The introduction of safety glass has been one of the biggest and most important developments in the glazing industry. Safety glass is directly responsible for the drop in injuries from glass to the public and tradesmen alike. Ordinary glass, known as annealed glass, can be a highly dangerous product, creating a hazardous environment if broken. To comply with current standards all glass installed in high traffic areas (such as doors, shopfront windows, bathrooms and low level glazing) must be made from laminated or toughened glass. It is still possible to use annealed glass in certain areas within the home or office but this is restricted to areas where breakages are less likely to cause harm.
