    Background: A TOUGH NEW GLASS, DESIGNED TO BEAT THE MOST DESPERATE SMASH-AND-GRAB' RAIDER, HAS BEEN DEVELOPED IN BRITAIN. AND, JUDGING FROM A DEMONSTRATION AT THE LONDON FACTORY TODAY (FRIDAY), THE SHOP-WINDOW BANDIT WILL NEED TO CHANGE HIS EMPLOYMENT - EVEN A TWO-POUND HAMMER JUST BOUNCES OFF THE GLASS.

    CONTINUED BATTERING WILL PRODUCE A SMALL HOLE. BUT THE 'BANDIT' GLASS IS LIKELY TO BREAK ANY HAMMER BEFORE THAT HAPPENS. AN ORDINARY TOUGHENED GLASS WINDOW WILL BREAK UNDER SUCH AN ATTACK.A PLASTIC CENTRE IN THE NEW BANDIT GLASS MAKES IT MUCH MORE RESISTANT.

    CHIEF USES FOR THE LAMINATED GLASS ARE FOR SHOP WINDOWS SECURITY VEHICLES CARRYING FIRM'S PAYLOADS, AND FOR THE PROTECTION OF VALUABLE ARTICLES ON DISPLAY.

    BANDIT GLASS COSTS ABOUT THREE TIMES AS MUCH AS PLATE GLASS. BUT IT COULD BE AN EASY WAY TO SAVE MONEY.
