Laminated Glass

Laminated Glass

Kite GlassLaminated glass is constructed from two or more panels of glass, sandwiching an interlayer and bonding the glass together. Should the glass be broken, the main function of the plastic interlayer is to retain the broken glass in situ, retaining glass fragments in the event of breakage custom laminated glass
Typically, laminated glass is fabricated using annealed glass which has not undergone any thermal heat treatment to increase its overall strength. Standard laminated glass is therefore just as susceptible to breakage as annealed glass, also having a slightly lower light transmission than ordinary glass of the same thickness Glass Shower
To overcome the strength issue of laminated glass, Kite Glass use toughened flat glass as an alternative to annealed glass. The result is a laminated glass product that has the strength of toughened glasses (approximately five times that of annealed), is thermally safe and will resist high temperatures without breakage. Kite Glass toughened laminated glass provides extraordinary levels of strength and performance under stress or impact. Capable of withstanding extreme pressure loads when correctly installed, our laminated glass is fully approved for the use in full height barriers, infill panels, barriers and structural balustrades glass showroom

Kite Glass will offer advice on the choice of interlayers, to allow architects and specifiers options for the reduction of sound and ultra-violet light transmission and tinted interlayers Sliding Glass Shower Door
