Laminated glass from Osborn Glass
We stock and supply cut to size laminated safety glass in 4.4, 6.4, 8.8 and 10.8mm thicknesses. Greater thicknesses to order. Laminated glass is also available in a range of colours. In addition to clear, we stock ‘white diffuser’ laminated glass in 6.4mm. Typically 10.8mm laminated glass is used in shop fronts. Laminated glass is frequently used in secondary glazing.
Our fire rated glass is a special variety of laminated glass, but the regular material on this page must not be used in fire rated installations.
Laminated glass is usually 2 layers of regular glass (although toughened glass may be used) with a plastic layer fused between. Laminated glass holds together when broken as the plastic interlayer (typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB)) holds the shards together.
We laminate various materials – fabrics, metal mesh, dried plants, etc between glass sheets for special decorative effects.
