Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that is highly versatile and can be utilised in a variety of applications including windows, doors and tabletops.
It consists of two pieces of glass joined by a polyvinyl butryal interlayer.
Since the glass is adhered to the interlayer, it does not shatter into dangerous shards so is considered a safer option than regular float glass.
Laminated glass has the appearance of a single pane of glass and is practically indistinguishable from regular glass.
In addition to it’s use on doors and windows, laminated glass is often utilised in the construction of glass railings, glass floors, skylights, roofs, awnings, curtain walls, and glass facades, among other applications.
Laminated glass is ideal for the glass awnings in commercial buildings because it remains unbroken when damaged.
Laminated glass can be utilised in hotels, airport terminals, and recording studios because of its noise-insulating capabilities.
