Laminated glass is an A grade safety glass, consisting of two pieces of glass held together with a PVB (Polyvinyl Butyral) interlayer. When broken the panel will stay intact adhering to the interlayer, offering a barrier to the elements and reduce the likelihood of injury. Other benefits of Laminated Safety Glass include:
UV Protection—The PVB interlayer eliminates up to 99% of the suns UV rays protecting your carpets, curtains and furniture from fading
Security—The PVB interlayer will resist penetration when under attack, making it difficult for the entry of the intruders depending on the severity of the impact, as it would be a slow and noisy process to penetrate. For further security features we can also supply 11.52 Anti-Bandit Laminated Glass (Assault Glass)
Sound Reduction—Laminated Glass will improve sound reduction due to the vibration dampening effect of the PVB
Translucent Laminated Glass
Suitable for decorative and screen applications. Consists of a white interlayer with clear glass
