Supplying glass panels in various thicknesses
If your shop’s displays, shelving or even flooring is vulnerable, this style of durable glass can offer peace of mind. In the event of an accident, or other collision, laminated glass will hold firm and is shatterproof to maintain the safety of your environment.
If there is a thickness you’re looking for, we’ve got you covered. We’re also happy to advise if you’re less sure. We stock 4.4, 6.4, 8.8 and 10.8mm. Don’t fear; we’ll cut your glass to your required dimensions.
We offer white ‘diffuser’ options (in 6.4mm) and clear variants. For shop fronts, 10.8mm glass is the most common choice. In most cases, our client’s select laminated glass for secondary glazing.
This style of safety glass is not to be confused with fire-rated glass; this is a different laminated option.
What is laminated glass?
In short, the glass will remain in one piece after being shattered. Being shatterproof is made possible by adding an ‘interlayer’ between two panels of glass. Our experts create the interlayer from a special type of plastic (typically of polyvinyl butyral or PVB) that ensures the shattered pieces are granular and held by the plastic interlayer.
The chief benefit of laminated glass is one of safety: if broken, there are no shards which might cause injury. There is also a security benefit, since the plastic interlayer holds the shattered panel in place, making premises entry more difficult compared to the standard window glass.
How is laminated glass made?
Glass panels are toughened either by thermal (heat treatment) or chemical processes. After being cut to important dimensions, the toughening process takes place. After this, the panels may not be reprocessed or cut.
