Laminated glass greatly reduces sound going in or out of your house, so if sound is a concern of yours, rest assured. The sound reduction is due to the viscoelastic properties of the interlayer material. So if you live in a neighborhood with plenty of distracting traffic, laminated glass windows can really help. If your house produces a lot of noise from your child’s instrument practicing, you’ll want to keep the noise in so you don’t disturb your neighbors.

UV protection

As you probably have experienced, ultra-violet light from the sun can cause fading on some of your favorite things and when you use non-laminated glass windows, the UV rays shine right through. To avoid having your curtains, carpets and furniture faded, you can get laminated glass windows installed. Laminated glass contains a special film that blocks most of the UV light from coming in.

Could certain types of laminated glass be used to reduce light pollution? The proposed MSG Las Vegas Sphere will project only 1.5 candles of light 200 feet from the Sphere.

How is this going to be accomplished?
