Laminated safety glass
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 BGT 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 to learn more.
BI-Combiset is a laminated safety glass which consists of at least two individual plates which are bound together with a highly tear-resistant polyvinyl butyral film (PVB film). As a result of the excellent tear-resistance of this PVB film and its strong adhesion to the glass, laminated glass offers protection against items being thrown through the glass, break-ins, gunshots and explosions. The adhesive properties of the film are excellent at adhering to slivers, thus reducing the risk of injury. BI-Combiset can be manufactured from combinations with float glass, tempered and semi-tempered glass, colour-coated glass or sun-protection glass. In addition, it is also possible to further refine all laminated glass items to create insulation glass.
