Laminated Glass

Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when broken. An interlayer, typically comprised of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), is usually present between the two or more layers of glass to prevent it from breaking. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its high strength prevents large sharp pieces of glass from breaking away. When the impact does not pierce the glass completely, the result is a characteristic “spider web” cracking pattern.

A laminated glass is commonly used in places where a human impact could happen or when the glass is at risk of falling. A laminated glass’ principal feature is its safety, as evidenced by the BS 6206 mark, and can also be used for security purposes. The combination of multiple layers of glass laminated together can even be bullet and ballistic resistant.

This is typically used for:

  • Public areas, shops, and schools.
  • Roofs with sloping or overhead pitches.
  • Secured environments, such as banks.
  • Single- and double-glazed windows.
