Laminated safety glass

  • Laminated safety glass has a wide range of uses for protecting people and property. It is an ideal solution wherever there is a need for impact, penetration, bullet and explosion resistant properties:

    • Facade glazing
    • Overhead glazing
    • Glass flooring
    • Fall protection
    • Parapets
    • Staircases

     

    Laminated safety glass substantially reduces the risk of injury in the event of a break, as the glass splinters adhere to the film. This means that the pane still has a higher residual load bearing capacity despite the break – if the pane is only partially destroyed it may still offer a certain protective effect. Laminated safety glass is therefore also a good basis for burglary protection.

  • Laminated safety glass consists of two or more float glass panes (or heat-strengthened glass panes), firmly bonded to one another with PVB films. This is done in a rolling process which presses the glass panes to the film. Then, a permanent bond of glass and film is realised in an autoclave under heat and high pressure. The safety effect is based on the high tear resistance of the films and their adhesion to the glass. If a pane breaks the broken fragments stick to the PVB layer.
