Glass is easy to break and cause injuries,over decades manufacturers developed new technology to increase glass strength and safety performance.
Glass facade is applied in worldwide skyscrapers,below suggestions are recommended to ensure the safety of your glass curtain wall.
Monolithic: Heat treatment
Heat strengthened glass,tempered glass has higher strengthen than anneal glass.
Glass Surface Pressure Heat Resistance Breakage Strength
Float Glass 15Mpa <100 Shards 1
Heat Strengthened 24-60Mpa 100℃ Radial shard 2
Toughened ≥90Mpa 200℃ Fairly small pieces 3-5
Heat Soaked ≥90Mpa 200℃ Fairly small pieces 3-5

While some special applications ,For example glass floors,glass bridge,need higher structural strength even if glass broken.
Structural glass/safety glass-Dupont SGP/SentryGlas Plus and Eastman DG41 solve this concern perfectly.
It can be applied as Hurricane glass,glass bridge,glass floors,laminated glass staircase or structural glazing applications.
Insulated glass can combine heat treated glass and laminated glass, make into:
Insulating Laminated –For overhead glazing
Laminated Insulating–For general glazing
Triple Insulating –For passive building&super energy-saving
Double Laminated Insulating –For protective glazing
