GEWE-dur® und GEWE-dur®- H
Toughened safety glass for the highest standards
The protected trademarks GEWE-dur® and GEWE-dur®-H are single panes of safety glass and meet all requirements which are made on modern thermally toughened glass: 4 – 5 x greater flex resistance compared to untreated flat glass (stable tension status), increased resistance to impact, shock and hail, thermal shock resistance, lower risk of injury, i. e. with excessive mechanical stress the pane breaks into blunt-edged, loosely connected fragments.
GEWE-dur®-H is a special, thermally toughened, hot-stored sodalime single pane safety glass produced in accordance with EN14179, for which spontaneous breakage can be largely excluded. Special application safety has to be guaranteed, especially in the construction sector. Therefore this product, which undergoes the heat soak test, corresponds with the standards of the German construction code and as such is a regulated construction product, which in individual cases would not require special approval.
The SCHOLLGLAS group produces GEWE-dur® high-grade toughened safety glass in modern furnaces in accordance with EN 12150 and ESG GEWE-dur®-H in accordance with EN 14179. This is done at several production sites in Europe and as such the company is always in the position to offer its customers optimum value for money for any kind of application.
The applications and uses for GEWE-dur®/GEWE-dur®-H range from interior glass applications, e.g. furniture, doors, showers, room dividers, to external security applications, such as all-glass facades and window glazing. In addition, specific areas with large thermal loads are covered.
In a further production step, GEWE-dur®/GEWE-dur®-H is also processed to become laminated safety glass, heat or sun protection glass, alarm glass and insulation glass.
