Do you have problems with broken glass, burglary or vandalism? Hammerglass is a durable abrasion-resistant polycarbonate sheet, 300 times stronger than glass - and virtually unbreakable. With their unique coating, Hammerglass sheets are resistant to most chemicals and acids. The coating also provides a UV protection of 99.96% so that the glass will not become cloudy, bleached or otherwise age over time, while also filtering out the harmful rays of the sun.
Hammerglass-IR, while maintaining all the incredible properties of Hammerglass, is also designed with special coating to reduce the sun ir-radiation by between 48%-55%. This in effect cuts the heat from the sun penetrating your room through the windows by about half. This drastically reduces your cooling cost in electricity bills through airconditioning.

The Axe Blows Test
The Swedish National Testing and Research Institute tested Hammerglass, subjecting it to over 72 blows from a pneumatic powered axe to qualify it for a Security Class P8B certification.

The highly scratch resistant sacrificial safecoat film provides added resistance to Hammerglass. This film can be replaced as needed and protect the glass from strong abrassions.
