Interlayers are used to permanently bond two lites of glass in a laminated conﬁguration.
Our laminated glass interlayers are available in a selection of colors and opacity that can’t be achieved through the use of coatings, silk-screening, spandrel or other glass substrates.
Thanks to the sound-blocking characteristics of interlayers, laminated glass reduces noise transmission.
We provide a wide range of laminated glass that helps mitigate the eﬀects of air blast attacks. It is important to note that the blast mitigating performance not only depends on the laminated glass, but also on its adequate installation in a frame that is appropriately anchored to the wall structure.
Our hurricane-resistant laminates not only pass but exceed the standards of the impact and cyclic wind pressure tests that are performed as part of the glazing system checks. Because of this, we are the preferred supplier of laminated glass for high-rise construction in South Florida, where we help designers meet the nation’s most stringent building codes.
The following factors should be considered when choosing the right hurricane-resistant glass for your application:
- Deﬁne the required design pressure/wind load.
- Deﬁne the applicable building code and test method.
- Qualify the missile requirement.
- Deﬁne the size of the glass.
- Evaluate system design details such as the glazing method, glass bite and anchorage and hardware requirements.
Safety: Our architectural laminated glass products comply with the industry safety standards for glazing materials ANSI Z97.1-2015 and CPSC 16 CFR 1201.
Ultraviolet protection: Our laminated glass provides 99% UV light blockage at the wavelength range of 300 to 380 nanometers.
