Common Emergency Break Glass Materials
Safeglass® is the only material that was specifically designed for this use. It is designed to mimic real glass but breaks safely, making it ideal for safety equipment.
• Toughened / Tempered Glass
This is real glass but a lot tougher – nearly impossible to break without help. When it breaks it forms small cubes which are much safer to handle than glass.
A range of plastics with different qualities can be used. These are flexible, durable and often quite cheap. They don’t break very easily but there are ways of getting around this.
• Real, Float Glass
Sometimes real glass is still used.
