Laminated glass is well known for its use in the windscreens of most of the world's cars. This global use can be attributed to what happens to laminated glass when it shatters. When shattered, laminated glass will stay in place and not break into large jagged pieces or hundreds of small fragments. Instead, it will stay in place long enough for a replacement to be found.
This is thanks to a plastic (polyvinyl butyral) sandwich that is sandwiched between the two panes of glass during the manufacturing process. This will bond the two panes together like glue, so that even if the glass breaks, its fragments will continue to be glued to the film. If you are unsure what laminated glass is or are unaware of its benefits, Northglass can help. Here, we have put together a guide to what laminated glass is, its uses and benefits.
Laminated Bullet Resistant Glass
Laminated glass consists of two layers of glass that are bonded together by a laminate to form a permanent bond. The middle layer acts as a support and holds the glass in place, creating a strong, even layer even when broken. Laminated glass is available in different thicknesses and can be made using different glass combinations or coatings to provide different qualities, such as low emissions or enhanced insulation.
Laminated glass provides a very strong but transparent layer and is an excellent alternative to conventional glass in a variety of applications.
for buildings with a high risk of hurricanes or other natural disasters
As windows in companies or homes with a high risk of break-in
As display cases for valuable items, such as jewellery shops
Aquariums or animal enclosures
The robustness and thickness of laminated glass provides a number of benefits.
The strength of laminated glass makes it virtually impossible to break, making it difficult for any unauthorised person to gain access. Even in the event of a break, the lamination maintains the strength of the structure, making it difficult to widen the gap.3 to 6 times stronger and unbreakable than normal annealed glass.
Low emission glazing helps to reduce the amount of heat coming from the sun, thus reducing the frequency of air conditioning use and reducing emissions.
Reduced noise pollution: Installing thick laminated glass causes noise waves to be disturbed as they pass through the material, helping to reduce noise pollution.
Safety Laminated Glass
In the event of a natural disaster or the arrival of unpredictable weather, laminated glass will remain in its frame, reducing the risk of accidents and making life-threatening situations safer.
Laminated glass is available in a wide range of colours, tints or shades and can be manufactured in straight or curved lines to enhance the versatility of the look.
