How is laminated glass produced?
Architectural laminated glass is produced from two or more glass sheets bonded under specific temperature and pressure conditions, along with the inclusion of one or more clear, coloured or decorated, elastic ‘foil sheets’ of various thicknesses according to the project requirements. The result is a high performance, durable, moisture-resistant glazing composite that provides solutions for many architectural design issues.
The most important aspect: SECURITY
The hardness, elasticity and grip of lamination on glass transforms architectural laminated glass into an excellent solution that combines design elements with safety. Due to its increased resistance to accidental impact, laminated glass is increasingly used in architectural projects and can be safely mounted vertically, horizontal or at any angle where required.
Laminated glass structural performance
Laminated glass offers some important structural properties. Firstly, laminated glass is much more flexible than single plate glass of the same type and thickness under lateral pressures (wind pressures) in the short term. Secondly, in case of accidental breakage, laminated glass retains the glass pieces, which remain glued to the lamination sheet. This protects the integrity of the building until the broken panel is replaced.
Lamination can be done for both flat and curved glass applications.
Unlimited design possibilities
The versatility of this technology allows us to sandwich various inserts between the glass sheets, such as natural veneers, metal meshes with rarer or more opaque textures, LED films, liquid crystal sheets, pressed natural plants, anti-vandalism films or some special foils that create a high resistance to unusual or heavy weather.
