Laminated Glass

Standard laminated glass consists of two or more panes of glass that are permanently bonded together by heat and pressure with one or more plastic interlayers of polyvinylbutyral (PVB). Normally clear, both the glass and interlayers can be manufactured in a variety of colours and thicknesses to provide a decorative appearance.

Laminated glass is suitable for use where safety glazing is required by local Building Regulations and Standards. When broken, the fragments usually adhere to the plastic interlayer and the risk of injury is reduced when compared with annealed glass. Laminated glass may be manufactured with heat strengthened or toughened glass to provide additional strength if required.

 Laminated glass may be used in a range of applications:

  • Safety glazing
  • Security glazing
  • Resistance to manual attack
  • Resistance against firearms
  • Explosion resistance
  • Floors and stairs
  • Containment barriers
  • Overhead glazing
  • Sound control

Most SunGuard Advanced Architectural Glass can be laminated.
