Laminated glass consists of two or more glass plates molten to each other under high-pressure with a special film (typically PVB - PolyVinylButyral) in between. This film prevents the window pane from falling apart upon breach. Therefore laminated glass is often used as safety and security glass (burglary, bullet and/or explosion proof).
The PVB film between the glass plates provides a number of other advantages:
- Extra thermal insulation;
- Various forms of sound insulation;
- It stops up to 99% of the harmful UV radiation (discoloration of interior);
- Special films offer many design possibilities.
The applications are very wide and Scheuten Projects offers laminated glass in both large and small size, and both as single glass as well as double or triple insulation glass with a variety of functionalities. Please feel free to contact us about this.
