Laminated Glass is available in wide variety of glass types, including annealed, tempered, heat strengthened, tinted, decorative ceramic coated and reflective glass. It also can offer a broad spectrum of colours and textures for stylish and dramatic visual effect.
Laminated glas retains its color and strength for the life of the building, yet is as easily cleaned as any conventional glass.
Ultraviolet light is the leading cause of deterioration and fading of furnishings, pictures, and fabrics. Laminated glass normally come with UV-absorbing additives that can screen out almost all damaging UV rays without affecting the visible light essentiall for visibility and plant growth. Photoreceptors in plants are still able to obsorb sunlight the interlayer allows to be tranmitted.
While standard laminated glass does not meet code requirements as a fire resistant glass when exposed to flames and heat, it does not disintegrate easily like ordinary annealed glass, thus confining the fire longer, and giving more time for detection, evacaution and extinguishing.
Laminated Glass using annealed glass can be cut to size on site and can also be drilled or notched.
