The Safety Aspect

At any given time of the year, safety and security of a place’s occupants are paramount. This need only multiplies during the festive season. After all, it’s a time of splurging your heart out on clothing, valuable jewellery, expensive décor items, basically an overhaul of spaces and persons.

We get the picture – your home will be jam-packed with guests; everyone having a great time together, and the last thing you’d want is an unwanted intrusion. Plus, such times make it very difficult to keep track of the people, making it easier for unknown faces to sneak and blend in.

Better to be safe than sorry. Laminated glass is a tough nut to crack – made using two sheets of annealed glass sandwiched together with a special Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVB) interlayer in between, this glass is extremely impact-resistant and makes intrusion an overwhelmingly challenging task.

Plus, there’s some added benefit – even if laminated glass successfully breaks, it will not shatter, unlike standard glass. The glass pieces will remain stuck to the PVB interlayer, further eliminating the chances of an intrusion. This property of laminated glass is especially useful when you have kids around.

Hence, secure your precious abode this festive season with laminated glass doors and windows.

Also, since laminated glass is also a champion in offering optimal acoustic insulation, you can rest assured that what happens in your home stays in your home. Similarly, you need not worry about the external noise creating disturbances for your celebrations.

Applications of Laminated Glass in High-Security Areas

Glass is a universal material used in the construction of buildings, both residential and commercial. Traditionally known for its fragility, modern-day innovative glass solutions have rendered ordinary glass a strong, versatile, and durable material capable of advanced functionalities. One such highly functional member of the glass family is laminated glass. Let us find out what laminated glass is and how it renders much-needed security to high-security areas.

What is Laminated Glass?

Laminated glass is a processed glass that serves as a fantastic alternative to ordinary glass. It offers a tough and robust structure and is difficult to break. It is a shatterproof glass so in a situation of breakage, it sticks to the frame and doesn’t shatter. 

Laminated glass is made with two or more panes of glass that are held in place with the help of an interlayer to form a permanent and strong bond. The interlayer is typically made of Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB). The PVB interlayer bonds with both the layers of the glass and hold it together to form one strong, intact uniformed layer upon a harsh impact. This bond between the PVB sheet and the glass is a chemical bond and thus it does not shatter easily. 

Laminated glass is found in the market in varying types of thickness. Different coatings and glass combinations of laminated glass are also available. These varying combinations add different qualities to the laminated glass such as better insulation, low emission, etc. 

Benefits of Using Laminated Glass

Laminated glass hosts a whole lot of benefits such as –

Better Safety

Ordinary glass is fragile and brittle. In case of breakage or accidental collision, ordinary glass shatters into long, jagged pieces that can cause serious, sometimes even fatal injuries. This is why using laminated glass becomes the best alternative. Laminated glass primary feature is its performance under harsh impact. The special PVB interlayer in laminated glass can absorb the impact and resists penetration. Under extremely harsh impact, the glass might break but the glass fragments will remain firmly attached to the interlayer and not shatter like ordinary glass. This minimises the risk of injuries and ensures safety.

Increased Security

Burglars often break windows or doors to intrude on your property. To safeguard your home and to add another layer of security, opt for laminated glass. The strength of laminated glass can resist intrusion and can make it almost impossible for any unauthorised person to break in. Even if an unauthorised person manages to break in, the interlayer will hold up the strength of the structure so that the gap is extremely difficult to widen. Moreover, since laminated glass pieces do not break and shatter unlike ordinary glass but stick to the PVB interlayer, this makes it very difficult for intruders to break in.

Noise Insulation

Laminated glass has proven itself to be an excellent barrier to noise. Installing laminated glass can prevent external sounds from intruding and provides a 90% sound reduction. When compared to normal 5mm glass, AIS Glass’s range of laminated glass called AIS Acoustic glass provides an extra 50-60% sound reduction. The noise cancellation feature becomes extremely important, especially if your house or workplace is near the main street, traffic signal, airports, or an area with night clubs and pubs.

Solar-Energy Control

Even though natural light sounds good, too much sunlight can also mean too much heat. Laminated glass can be used in combination with low-E glass or tinted glass to reduce heat gain. Reduced heat gain will subsequently lead to low usage of air-conditioners. This low usage will ultimately lower your energy consumption and bring down your energy bills.

Better Protection

Laminated glass is also resistant to dirt, debris, and other harmful environmental elements. When paired with UV-absorbing additives in the interlayer, laminated glass can also protect the interiors of your property from harmful UV rays. UV rays are not only harmful to your health, but are also a major cause of damage and fading of furnishings, rugs, and pictures in your house or office, so protection from UV rays is important.

Application of Laminated Glass

Due to its strength and shatterproof quality, laminated glass finds wide variety of applications in areas both residential and commercial. Laminated glass’ safety feature is extremely useful in areas that need high-security such as banks, money-exchange centers, jewellery shops, museums, and art galleries. They can also be used in prisons to help protect the premises as well as the prisoners. Due to its strong resistant capacity, laminated glass can be used to make bulletproof glass. With rising levels of crime and terrorism in urban spaces, the usage of bulletproof glass can safeguard lives. It can also be used in places that have national and international importance to add another level of security.

Areas in residential and commercial complexes that are prone to theft, burglary and criminal activities can have laminated glass installed to provide better security. These areas that are at higher risk of break-ins will benefit hugely from the installation of laminated glass.  Moreover, laminated glass is the best material to be used in the construction of buildings in disaster-prone areas, especially where hurricanes and tornadoes are common.

Laminated glass is also used in car windshields as it will provide maximum protection in the face of an accident. It can also be used as a structural glass and used in the construction of glass railings, glass floors, skylights, roofs, sunspaces, curtain walls, glass facades, etc. As laminated glass remains intact when broken, it is also great for overhead glazing in buildings. Due to their noise-insulation properties, laminated glass can also be used at hotels, airport terminals, recording studios, etc.

Are Laminated Glass the Best for Security Purposes?

Having the delicate visual feel of water, glass is identified as a modern piece of décor that exudes class and sophistication. It keeps spaces visually open, adds grace to the architecture and can make any space feel like a work of art. It’s not a surprise that swanky glass structures are sure to leave people in awe and wonder. However, as elegant as glass buildings may be, they are often seen as a safety hazard, owing to “apparent” fragility.

But thanks to technological advancements, glass has evolved from its humble origins to encompass a world of possibilities, including the security factor. Although made of the same basic elements, which are sand, limestone, and sodium carbonate, modern-day glass is treated and processed to help you acquire a wide variety of glass solutions that cater to your every need. Whether you wish to increase the aesthetic appeal of your space or want to amp up the security factor, glass can do it all. In today’s day and age, you can find textured, coloured, patterned, and, most importantly, sturdy and durable glass designed to be more robust than steel. And one such glass that has taken the world by storm with its immense strength is laminated.

Growing Popularity of Laminated Glass

Specially designed to enhance the security measures of your space, laminated glass has become widely popular amongst architects and designers aiming to build a safe space. Manufactured with two or more sheets of annealed or heat-treated glass, laminated glass gets its superior strength and durability from a plastic interlayer called polyvinyl butyral (PVB) sandwiched between the glass sheets. The strength of laminated glass depends upon the number of PVB interlayers that were used in the manufacturing process. The higher the number of glass sheets and PVB interlayers, the better the efficiency of laminated glass at keeping your homes and offices away from harm.

After placing the PVB interlayer between the panes of glass, they are sealed together using an autoclave and a series of pressure rollers. The heat and pressure create several chemical and mechanical reactions causing the laminated glass to stay intact even under heavy impact. The PVB’s adhesive nature creates a mechanical and hydrogen bond by which the sheets of glass stick to each other in an integrated manner. A great benefit of the bonding process is that even in the event of glass breakage, laminated glass remains intact as the broken pieces stick firmly to the interlayer. This feature protects people from an injury that is usually the case with standard glass. This way, not only does the laminated glass protect you from burglars and intruders, but it also guarantees indoor safety for the people.

Laminated glass has emerged as a sensational hit in the market for designing functional spaces. However, laminated glass has also gained recent popularity for its trendy designs fused with optimum security that renders the perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality. Don’t believe how one piece of glass can give the utility of all? Read on to find out about the different types of laminated glass and how they are popularly used.
