Laminated glass is a top choice for safety glass. But what exactly is laminated glass, and what should you use it for?
What is laminated glass?
Laminated glass is a type of safety glass used for all kinds of architectural and automotive projects. Laminated glass contains an inner plastic layer that holds the two outer layers of glass in place. This makes it more durable and, in the event it is broken, the glass will stay in its frame. All types of glass can be laminated, so it’s worth considering no matter the type of glass you choose.
What should I use laminated glass for?
Because laminated glass will hold together even if shattered, it’s a great choice for anything that might be particularly vulnerable to breaking. Store windows and doors, for example, are typically made of laminated glass. Buildings that have glass floors also use laminated glass to prevent breakage from all the foot traffic. The material is even bullet proof, so it may be found in police cars and stations. If you’re looking for a “green” option, laminated glass is a good choice, as it improves energy efficiency in your home or office and helps protect against damaging UV rays.
