Glass plays an important role in the car's ability to offer safety and security to its occupants. In addition to its traditional characteristics, automotive glass can improve car occupant safety and security in several other ways. Some examples of Saint-Gobain Sekurit's value-added glazing that offers peace of mind for car passengers
In the automotive industry, a distinction is often made between active and passive safety. Active safety relates to car equipment or characteristics that help the driver to avoid an accident. An example of an active safety feature is the anti-lock braking system (more commonly known as ABS). Conversely, passive safety relates to features that protect passengers or reduce the likelihood of serious injury in case of an accident.
Saint Gobain Sekurit offers its customers value-added products that actively and passively contribute to increasing safety and security of car occupants.
SGS GLOBALPROTECT® is the brand name given to Saint-Gobain Sekurit laminated side glazing and laminated backlites. This product directly contributed to improving passenger safety and security.
Other products contribute to increasing passenger safety by improving driver visibility and visual comfort. These products are the SGS ICECONTROL® Heatable, the SGS AQUACONTROL® Water-repellent, and SGS REFLEXCONTROL® Antireflective glazing.
