Toughened laminated glass is used widely in the creation of essential construction elements such as Balustrade systems and Juliet Balconies. Approved by architects and interior designers for its versatility, which helps to make design concepts a reality, toughened laminate is also extremely durable ensuring the highest safety standards are met, whatever the project.
Toughened laminated glass is the safe option for many applications, especially when used at height and in barriers such as balustrades. It is equally suited to the commercial, public and domestic sectors.
Using toughened glass, which is up to five times stronger than annealed glass of the same thickness, two panes are laminated together with an interlayer. This is normally a clear PVB (PolyVinyl Butyrall) interlayer, which, if the glass panel is damaged, will hold most of the small granular fragments in place, greatly reducing the potential hazard of falling glass.
