VELFAC SAFETY - Personal safety

VELFAC SAFETY glass should be used in areas where glazing is at risk from human impact (safe breakage) or where glazing is required to form a physical barrier between levels (containment).

It is typically used in casement doors, sliding casement doors, entrance doors and low positionned windows.

VELFAC SAFETY glass meets a number of National and European standards.

Approved document N of the Building Regulations and BS 6262: Part 4 identify the critical areas and requirements for safety glass. Approved document K of the Building Regulations identifies the requirements for containment. BS 6206 identifies the impact test procedure and classification for safety glass.


The strength and stability of the fittings is an additional safety feature.

Please find more information about Safety and Functionality with the VELFAC 200 DGU window system under Performance.
