Laminated safety glass is a combination of two or more panes of clear float glass, with one or more PVB interlayer's. The PVB interlayer works to bond the clear float glass panes together, so that even if broken, the glass remains bonded by the PVB sheet making it extremely difficult to cut through, and contains the broken glass in its original position. The mechanical function of laminated glass provides both safety and security. By combining different numbers of clear float glass with different numbers of PVB interlayer, different levels of security and safety can be achieved, from bullet-resistant glass to sound-control glass.
Laminated sound-control glass utilises different thicknesses of clear float glass with special sound-control PVB to control the sound frequencies travelling through the glass and reducing noise. Different glass and PVB combinations will reduce different sound frequencies. Furthermore, laminated glass can almost completely block out UV radiation, reducing fading of furniture and interior fittings. Laminated glass is ideal for curtain walling, window systems, balustrading, glazed floors, partitions, aquaria, and all applications for safety.
