Laminated Glass


Laminated glass is considered a safety glass because it's difficult to break apart as the inner layer membrane forms an adhesive type material keeping all glass layers intact. Laminated glass provides additional stability to prevent damages caused by both man-made and natural forces. Laminated glass not only provides protection from physical force but can also be used to prevent noise pollution for sound control. In addition, various custom coloured films can be used to regulate UV light while visually creating a dramatic effect. With laminated glass you can generate countless possibilities that meet both form and function.

Laminated glass is put together by using a heat and pressure process, pressing the flexible vinyl interlayer between the layers of glass. The interlayers are available in a variety of different thicknesses and colors. Membranes available include EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) or PVB (Poly Vinyl Butyral).

Types of Laminated Glass

Clear Laminated Glass

The basic type of laminated glass is clear laminated glass. It is resistant to blows and impact, durable and versatile. Since laminated glass is so thick, it provides great insulation from noise and external heat and cold. It also stops harmful ultraviolet rays without preventing sunlight from pouring through.

Tinted Laminated Glass

Laminated glass made with a coloured interlay results in tinted laminated glass. It has all the same properties as clear laminated glass with the bonus of transparent colour with little to no visible distortion. Tinted laminate is available in a range of colours including blue, bronze, green, grey, and pink.

Low-E Laminated Glass

Low-E glazing on laminated glass can greatly minimize the amount of ultraviolet and infrared light that passes through the glass. The coating is applied inside the laminate. There are many places where the coating can be applied, but for consistency of colour throughout a project, all the glass used should have the coating placed in the same position.

Decorative Laminated Glass

You can transform your space through decorative laminated glass. This type of laminated glass retains all the properties and benefits of laminated glass with the added touch of etching, back-painting, or printing on the outside of the glass. It can be applied inside or out and can be combined with any other type of laminate glass upgrade.

Applications of Laminated Glass

All types of laminated glass are used in a wide range of architectural applications like windows, doors, skylights, facades, balustrades, floor-to-ceiling glazing, curtain walls, and glass floors. It is used especially where protection from forced entry, blasts, bullets, or noise is required, and where aesthetics dictate coloured, transparent glass. Laminated glass is also chosen in offices and clinics to provide privacy while allowing natural light to pass. Libraries, museums, and art galleries use laminated glass because it stops ultraviolet rays from passing through, and therefore it prevents damage to furnishings, flooring, collections, and exhibits.

Laminated glass is used in hurricane- and other storm-prone areas to offer protection from flying debris and glass shards. Laminated glass is also a common choice for high-rises and skyscrapers because it is strong, reduces sound, and maintains its form if it breaks. When coated with a high-performance coating, laminated glass offers excellent thermal insulation while allowing natural light into a room or space.
