Laminated Glass

We can produce laminated glass in all thicknesses and finishes. Whether you want toughened laminated safety glass with a coloured or a sandblasted interlayer, our professional laminating process allows almost anything and everything to be laminated between two or more pieces of first-rate glass.

What is laminated glass?

A type of safety glass that keeps its form when broken, laminated glass is an excellent option for a variety of domestic and commercial applications. Laminated safety glass is also able to bolster the sound insulation of a window and can block harmful UV rays.

Laminated glass is made by inserting an interlayer, usually polyvinyl butyl (PVB) or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), between two or more outer layers of glass so that its bonds the glass. When broken, the outer glass is held in place by the sandwiched interlayer. The shattered double or triple laminated glass often makes a spider web pattern and the broken pieces will not create sharp shards.
