As businesses and public spaces are increasingly focused on offering both safe and aesthetic environments, traditional materials are often falling short. Enter laminated glass—a marvel of modern engineering that combines the beauty of glass with unprecedented levels of safety and utility. So let's shatter some misconceptions and clear the way for a clearer, safer, and more stylish future with laminated glass.
Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that is made by sandwiching one or more layers of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or other interlayer material between two or more sheets of glass. The interlayer holds the glass together if it is shattered, preventing it from breaking into sharp, dangerous pieces. This feature makes laminated glass an ideal choice for applications where safety and security are a concern, such as in automotive windshields, building facades, and skylights.
Glass shower doors can offer several benefits for commercial projects, including:
Glass entrance systems refer to the use of glass as a material for creating entrance systems in buildings, such as doors, windows, and storefronts. Glass entrance systems are popular in modern architectural designs and can provide numerous benefits, including:
Decorative glass printing is a process of applying designs or images onto glass surfaces using advanced printing technologies. This process offers several benefits, including:
Commercial laminated glass is a type of safety glass that is commonly used in commercial buildings, such as offices, schools, and retail stores. It is made by bonding two or more layers of glass together with a layer of plastic (usually polyvinyl butyral) in between.
Security glass or Safety Glass is a broad category of fortified glass that is used to help resist breakage when encountering projectiles, natural disasters, and even explosions. They consist of laminated glass systems, meaning that two or more sheets of glass are permanently bonded together by an interlayer (see Laminated Glass products page for a more detailed product description). By modifying the heat-treatment of the glass, the number of panes and the interlayer material, various levels of strength and resistance can be achieved.
Laminated glass products are being used in various types of building construction applications serving as durable, translucent fenestration and building interior material options that offer the benefits of daylighting and unobstructed views while also meeting building code standard requirements for safety glazing applications.
Laminated glass is constructed by permanently bonding two or more lites of glass together with a polymeric interlayer sheet using a process that involves exposure to cycles of heat and pressure within a specialized autoclave chamber. The interlayers secure the glass to create a strong, uniformed layer even when broken. Laminated glass comes in a variety of thicknesses and different glass combinations, interlayer components or coatings.
