Why it’s so great?
Laminated glass is often used as protection in glazing. The different layers of glass are separated by one or more synthetic elastic films, polyvinyl butyral (PVB). In the manufacture of this type of glass, the temperature and the pressure are so great that it becomes impossible to dissociate the PVB from the glass.
Which one do you need?
There are mainly 3 groups of laminated glasses:
1- Classic laminated glass:
it is more resistant than traditional glass because the PVB film avoids the projection of shards of glass and stiffens all but it can still break and be pierced.
2- Laminated safety glass:
It significantly reduces the risk of burglary and the risk of injury by keeping the pieces of glass against the PVB film, it is also harder to break and pierce.
2- Gel laminated glass:
it is a fireproof glass, it is designed to withstand fires.
The PVB film also acts as an ultraviolet UV filter and significantly attenuates the discoloration of what is behind the glass. Laminated glass can also be assembled in double glazing to add thermal and sound insulation to safety.
