Justly popular for their strong and reliable qualities, toughened, laminated and toughened laminated glass are all uniquely treated to offer the best in safety and standards for all kinds of commercial buildings.
Sometimes known as tempered glass, toughened glass is 4-5 times stronger than ordinary glass. This strength is achieved through heating ordinary glass past its softening point and chilling it quickly to develop compressive surface stresses within. This treatment also means that if broken, the glass will break into small blunt fragments rather than normal shards of glass.
Laminated glass features a plastic interlayer (PVB) between two panes of glass and is made by pasting resin glue between the two panes of glass then heating, pressing and bonding them together. This glass solution offers excellent insulation and resistance against any damage or shock.
The ultimate safety glass, toughened laminated glass features a plastic interlayer (EVA) between two panes of toughened glass which improves both safety and protection. If one of the two toughened glass panes breaks, there will be no falling glass particles as the second toughened glass pane, along with the interlayer provides an extra barrier of protection. Toughened laminated glass is mainly used for glass canopies, balustrade and floor glass.
With our own in-house toughening plant capable of processing glass from 4mm to 19mm in thickness, we have many years of experience in manufacturing these products and would be happy to offer a solution that meets your brief.
