Windows, glass doors, table tops, showers. If we do a quick scan of our house we realize that we have a lot of glass laying around.
Because glass is a delicate material you can quickly end up with a broken glass or a window. It can end up with serious injuries like cuts, injured ligaments or infections.
If your glass door or a window gets broken, do not try to remove the shattered glass from the window frame or door frame by yourself. The best thing to do is to call the professionals. At Secure Glass, our certified 24 hour emergency glass repair team is ready to help you 24/7 with any kind of glass repair or replacement.
Safety at home when it comes to broken glass isn’t expensive, it’s priceless.
When it comes to glass, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Accidents do happen but the good news is that you can prevent them. To avoid injuries caused by broken glass choose safety glass instead of normal glass.
Glass doors and windows are amongst the most usual building features involved in accidents on residential properties. Around 16,000 non-fatal accidents are reported to hospital Accident and Emergency Departments in England and Wales each year (source). This gives a good idea of the severity of broken glass situations in Australia.
One type of glass growing in popularity is safety glass. This type of glass used in commercial as well as residential homes is strengthened by heating and cooling, becoming four to five times stronger than regular glass. There are different sorts of safety glass. For instance, tempered glass will stay glued in place instead of shattering.
Get in touch with us today if you need advice about choosing the right type of safety glass.

There are many factors you need to consider when choosing glass for your windows or doors. Efficiency, quality and comfort are the most important ones. If you live in a quiet neighborhood and the temperature isn’t changing much throughout the year, then single pane glass is a good decision to go for.
Single pane glass windows are made out of one layer of glass. That means they don’t do as good of a job as double paned windows do when it comes to keeping the noise out of your house. However, they are pretty affordable and if you are renewing your whole house you can save thousands of dollars if you stick with single pane glass doors/windows.
Longer term, you might end up regretting single pane glass however. If you live in a loud neighborhood, proper sleep and rest will be harder to come by. Also, your energy bills increase if the temperatures in your area fluctuate much throughout the seasons. The choice is yours.
Double paned glass consists of two layers of glass separated by each other. Between the two layers of glass is either air or gas. Gas used is usually Krypton or Argon. Space between the layers of glass creates super insulation for your home, keeping cold out in the winter and heat out in the summer.
A good double paned window can reduce energy usage by up to 24% in cold environments in the winter and 18% in hot climates in the summer. So it’s definitely a smart investment for the future. While you might pay more for a double paned window, it will pay out on a longer term, because you will save a lot on your energy bills.

Screen doors were invented in 1887, mostly to keep the bugs out of the house and to let the fresh air in. Today we see them in most homes across Australia. They don’t only keep the bugs and birds out, but did you know they also increase the value of your house?
Usually screen doors are made out of two materials : aluminium or wood. The wooden doors are more expensive and give that classic look to your porch. If you would rather have the aluminium screen doors, they come in two varieties : roll formed and extruded. They vary in price and have different decorative looks.
Roll Formed aluminium doors are the most inexpensive screen doors. They are made out of aluminium square tubes. These tubes are used to create a frame for the door.
Extruded aluminium frames are usually more expensive to make, but are also stronger and easier to repair later on.
Today we have modern high tech versions of screen doors made out of fiberglass that can keep out 75% of UV light. Some of the mesh used for these doors can filter out pollen and allergens as well.
Is the mesh screen on your screen door turning silver? That’s an indication that it needs to be replaced. It’s a quick and easy job to do so, and we at SecureGlass are glad to do it for you!

No matter what type of shower doors you choose to go for, shower doors should always be made out of tempered glass. Accidents happen and bathing and showering is the most hazardous activity for all ages. Around two-thirds of emergency room visits have to do with injuries near or in the bathtub or shower. (source)
