What is laminated glass?

Laminated glass(also referred to as triplex) is a type of safety glass that stays whole even after being shattered. When breaking occurs it stays whole thanks to the middle layer of Polyvinyl butyral (PVB). The laminated glass design is such that the middle layer holds the glass panels together and its strength does not allow the glass to shatter into big sharp pieces.

There is a distinctive web-like model of breaking when the impact is not enough to fully go through the whole glass. The laminated glass is commonly used when there is a possibility of human influence. A preferred choice in many architectural applications where there is a risk for passers-by or a higher breaking resistance is sought. This type of glass is often used for car windows.

what is laminated glass

In geographical regions where a hurricane-resistant construction is required the laminated glass is used for outer showcase windows, walls, and windows. Possible glass configurations: 3.3.1, 4.4.1, 5.5.1, 6.6.1, 8.8.2, 8.8.4, 10.10.2, 10.10.4, 12.12.2, 12.12.4 tempered and non-tempered.

How is laminated glass made ?

types of laminated glassThe technology of gluing (lamination) of glass is performed by applying high temperatures and pressures on the triplex in order to eliminate air bubbles from the glass layers and thus creating a strong seal. That way the glass becomes strong enough to endure the stress it is exposed to.

In the case of breaking, there are no sharp pieces that can cause fatal injuries to the people around the glass. For that reason, the laminated glass is classified as safety glass. The standard PVB laminated glass has a minimum thickness of 0.38 mm, but a lot of 0,38 layers can be laminated to achieve an even stronger connection. The same technology is used for bulletproof glass.

What are the advantages of the laminated glass?

Excellent resistance to changes in temperature and pressure. It can endure hit with metal, rock, or even small explosions. The great sound insulating properties of that glass type significantly reduce the outer noise. Because of that quality, it is often used by sound recording companies, airports, hotels, and others.

The laminated glass also blocks a big part of the UV radiation and thus protects the furniture from harmful UV rays.

Laminated glass got better fire resistance if compared to the regular glass. It will not disintegrate immediately and it will take time for it to break down, so people can be safely evacuated in the event of a fire emergency.

In case of an earthquake, the regular glass breaks down almost immediately but the laminated glass stays whole in the window frame which ensures people’s safety when they leave the building.

The laminated glass can withstand strong winds such as hurricanes or even tornadoes. Thanks to that the damages caused by natural disasters are significantly lower.

Laminated glass applications:

Used for glass railing systems, glass stairs, glass floors, glass joineries, glass curtains, glass doors, glass facades, thanks to it’s transparency and modern look.

Also used in banks, exchange offices, museums, galleries, car windows, and others thanks to it’s toughness.

The sound insulating property makes it a preferred choice for airports, sound recording studios, and hotels.

A preferred choice in many architectural applications where there is a risk for passers-by or a higher breaking resistance is sought.

 

Our laminated glass:

Baros Glass can offer tempered, semi-tempered, non-tempered laminated glass. The tempered glass is certified according to European standard: EN12150-2:2004, the laminated glass: EN14449:2005.

Laminate choice:

PVB (Polyvinyl butyral) is created more than 80 years ago, but PVB is the dominating laminate protective glass layer since the 30s. PVB is a resin commonly used for applications that require adhesion, optical clarity, strength, and flexibility.

SGP (SentryGuard Plus) consists out of a super-hard plastic intermediate composition, which is being laminated between two layers of tempered glass. This is the most up-to-date technology. The middle layer offers five times greater tear strength and 100 times greater hardness than the alternative PVB intermediate layer.

It is most often used in public places where human safety can be endangered by explosions or hurricane winds.

Colours for the laminated glass:

The colour of the triplex can be a combination between colour and transparent, colour and colour, or the most commonly used coloured laminate PVB. Every colour and pattern can be achieved.

The colour glass can be Blue, Green, Gray, Bronze. Colour laminate: white, black, blue, red, opaque (opaque) overflow color, and much more.

Clear is transparent (cleared) glass – it has the characteristic slight greenish tinge.

Ultra Clear (clear vision) is a super-transparent glass. It has the lowest iron levels for which it is also called Low-Iron glass. The glass does not have visible hue.
