Topic: strong glass to replace grills

hello all,
i have a window 6ftx10ft, whose view i do not want to ruin by using an iron grill. I was thinking of putting a strong glass and avoiding grills so that view remains clear and security is also not compromised. The only benefit tempered glass appears to offer is less injury in case of shattering, but it does not appear to be tough enough!
Is there any glass which suits my requirement..?
Looking forward to your response!

Dear Ahsan,The Iron Grill can not be replaced by glass,,,If it is on other than Ground floor than its okay...you can put light Stainless.Steel Decorative designs inside the glass for security ,it suits to interior also....

hi Ahsan: PVB glass is an option, but tends to be costly.

Thank you Mr. Navneet and Abhishek.
I have looked up PVB Glass, and it appears to adress the issue of safety quite well.
This approx 1" thick glass could crack, but it would not break in case of repeated blows with an axe and hammer. The effort and time required to break it would desist potential burgalars.
One could also fit an alarm over the window inside of the house, which would sound upon the first impact of a blow as a further deterrant.
However the price is pretty high (around Indian Rs. 300 - 330)

Post subject: This is not good for individual houses

Glass  with out grills is ideal for  multi-storyed buildings and five star hotels  where maintenance expenses are shown as business expenses and where there is 24 hours security system.  For a single story or two story independent houses it poses two problems  - 1) Security Risk  and 2 ) High  maitenance cost in case of breakage. Not a good idea for individual houses enen though it has high  aesthetic value.

I believe that using glass in place of the iron grills is a good idea. For this you can use PVB or AIW frame in the windows both serves good. Apart form these windows consist of a thick sheet of glass between the frame this gives tensile strength and prevents from damages due to storm. For more details CLICK HERE
