Laminated Glass

What is Laminated Glass?

Definition of Laminated Glass in Construction
Two panes of glass, fused together, with a sheet of clear plastic in the middle of the two panes of glass. This will allow the breakage of the glass without separation and failure. Laminated glass is commonly used as a safety glass due to its ability to remain in one piece when broken. In some cases the use of tempered glass, in lieu of laminated glass is utilized. Laminated glass has no distance between the panes of glass, therefore there are no air spaces or voids. The individual panes of glass are sandwiched together to eliminate any voids and create a very durable and almost unbreakable unit. Laminated glass is also used for car windshields, safety glass on equipment and is used in the creation of bulletproof and explosion proof glass.
