Tempered glass in the shower room is the best laminated film to prevent safety hazards
Some people say that there can be no bathtub in the bathroom, but not a fully functional shower room. Nowadays, many owners have shower rooms in their homes, one is beautiful, and the other is that it can separate dry and wet. However, the frequent safety accidents have to arouse everyone's attention. According to industry insiders, tempered glass has a spontaneous explosion rate of three-thousandths.
Too scary shower room glass suddenly exploded
News background: Wuhan woman got multiple cuts from the shower room explosion while taking a bath
In 2013, she lived in a hardcover room. Ms. Lu from Wuhan Tiandi Yujiangyuan took two children (one 7 years old and one less than 2 years old) into the bathroom to take a bath. The children played in the bathtub, and she took a shower in the shower room by herself. About 10 minutes later, she walked out of the shower room and was arranging her hair in front of the bathroom mirror. The glass door of the shower room behind her suddenly burst, and a large pile of broken glass hit her, and the pain was unbearable. Her husband, Mr. Zhu, was watching TV in the bedroom. He heard a 'boom' in the bathroom. He hurried over and saw a pile of broken glass on the ground. His wife was covered in blood. Mr. Zhu then sent his wife to 161 Hospital for medical treatment. After examination, Ms. Lu had more than 20 wounds all over her body. The longest wound was on the left calf, about 6 cm long. The doctor spent half an hour to clean the glass debris from the wound.

'A Yuesao gave her baby a bath. The glass in the shower room suddenly broke, and her thick pants were all scratched. It broke, and the wound was bleeding.” At noon on the 12th, Mr. Pan, a citizen, reported to this newspaper that now there is only a small piece of glass on the left side of the shower room, and glass ballasts are scattered all over the place. Afterwards, the reporter met Ms. Han in the East Campus of the Affiliated Hospital of Qinghai University. 'The baby is less than a month old. Fortunately, it was not there at the time, otherwise the results would be unimaginable.' Ms. Han said that she was preparing to bathe the child at the time.

The child's father told reporters that after the incident, the developer and shower room manufacturer sent people to the scene to check, and the cause of the accident still needs further investigation. According to the person in charge of the community property, the family members said that they did not touch the fixed bolt of the glass, and initially suspected that the shower room was self-destructive. They will actively deal with the aftermath and bear the medical expenses of Ms. Han.
Why does the shower room explode?
We found that shower room explosions mostly occurred in hardcover rooms. In order to save costs, many developers use many shower rooms that are produced by township enterprises or even small workshops that are not qualified for production. Most of these companies do not have corporate production standards, and the products do not have relevant testing equipment when they leave the factory. Many of the tempered glass used is semi-tempered or ordinary thickened glass, aluminum alloy or plastic frames, guide rails and hardware are of poor quality. , It does not meet the safety standards at all.

According to industry insiders, tempered glass is more secure than ordinary glass. The flexural strength is increased by 3 to 5 times, and the impact strength is 5 to 10 times that of ordinary glass. Even if it is broken, it will appear as small fragments without sharp angles, and the damage is greatly reduced. However, tempered glass has the possibility of spontaneous explosion when the temperature difference changes greatly, the probability is about three in thousand, but the current national standard does not specifically stipulate. Industry insiders suggest that you should buy shower room products marked with the brand, factory address, and certificate, and try not to buy those without outer packaging. When buying tempered glass, the product must be at least 6 mm thick and have the 3C certification mark. Before use, it is best to flush the glass door with hot water for five minutes.
If you want 100% safety, you can paste a high-quality transparent safety explosion-proof film on the shower room glass, and stick the spontaneous glass fragments together through the adhesive force of the explosion-proof film to prevent The splash of glass fragments caused by the spontaneous explosion of the glass injures people, which plays a role of safety protection.
The tips for purchasing shower room, focus on the three aspects of glass, profile and pulley when purchasing:
[Glass]: National 3C safety certification is required. Knock the glass with your knuckles, the sound of tempered glass is clearer, and the sound of ordinary glass is dull.
[Profile]: The high-grade mainstream brand shower room uses high-purity aluminum, which is relatively strong and not easy to deform, and the thickness is preferably above 1.1mm.
[Pulley]: If the pulley is pushed or pulled up, it will make a louder sound or astringency, and sometimes it will derail, which will affect its service life.
