Laminated vs Insulating Glass

Laminated glass and insulating glass can be great for many types of projects. If you have an upcoming project with glass, you may want to take a look at some differences between these two types of glasses, so that you can decide which type is best for your upcoming project.

Laminated insulate glass

Laminated Glass

Laminated glass is available in a variety of translucent colors and is constructed by bonding two or more layers of bent glass together. This type of glass is great for creating complicated shapes in architectural and automotive applications and can conform to all major industry standards.

This glass offers plenty of useful features. If you’re looking for a glass that can limit noise, acoustical glass panels in bent laminated glass can help with sound control. Laminated glass also offers enhanced UV protection with the addition of a thin internal layer that is available in clear or a variety of tints.

Insulating Glass

Insulating glass is made by sealing two layers of bent glass around a sealed air space. This pocket of gas creates an internal space between the layers that helps to improve the window’s insulating power.  It is possible to use special gas mixtures such as Argon in order to further enhance the insulating performance of your windows.

The sealed air space between the panes of glass gives it great heat and cold air retention capabilities. If you’re using this product for architectural projects, the high energy efficiency of insulating glass can significantly cut energy bill costs..

Laminated Insulate Glass

If you are looking for the ultimate sound and thermal characteristics, it is possible to combine both together to produce a laminated insulated unit.  Together they make an ideal option for use along busy streets or other locations with heavy traffic or loud noise.
