The use of high strength 2mm thick Steel to reinforce all vinyl and secure locks directly into the steel core is standard. Many competitors use less supportive aluminum reinforcement or no reinforcement at all (Se blew), allowing locking mechanisms to be ripped/pried from the vinyl during forced entry.
Unlike annealed or tempered glass, if laminated glass is broken, the glass fragments remain adhered to the interlayer and securely in the frame. This provides strong barrier against forced entry or wind-blown debris. Since laminated glass can be cut from only one side, glass cutters are rendered useless in the hands of would be intruders.
Breaks easily, producing long sharp splinters
Shatters completely higher levels of impact energy and few pieces remain in the frame
May crack under pressure but tends to remain integral adhering to the plastic vinyl interlayer
