Laminated Safety Glass

Laminated glass offers the benefits of improved safety and security, and designed to be significantly more difficult to penetrate.

Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that remains intact when shattered. It has the appearance of monolithic float glass but up to 10 times the penetration resistance. According to the National Building Regulations, these types of glass solutions need to be installed where there’s a high probability of broken glass causing harm.

When broken, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically polyvinyl butyral (PVB), between its two or more layers of glass. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp, dangerous shards.

Laminated glass is normally used when there is a possibility of human impact or where the glass could fall if shattered. It is also used extensively in shop fronts, curtain walls and windows. The PVB interlayer also gives the glass a higher sound insulation rating, as well as increased protection against UV radiation.
