Homes which use laminated glasses instead of the normal ones are far more secure. The windows and places from where a burglar may try to enter should have the normal glass replaced with the laminated ones. The reason behind it being safer is that it does not brake with a single blow, requires quite a beating to show damage. It takes several minutes to completely break them.
No burglar would be stupid enough to keep on hitting at the laminated glass to get through it; getting caught being the fear. Place yourself in the place of a burglar and try to search for the places outside your home from where you can break and enter. If it consists of glass covering, replace it with laminated glass with an additional lock for supreme security. Laminated glasses are not very cheap so use them first only at places which need them. Once you have the money, replace all the glasses with it.
