Laminated glass is an innovative glass and vinyl composite with excellent safety features and the clarity of normal glass.

It is composed of two exterior panels of glass adhered to an inner layer of vinyl. This adhesion means that even if the glass is broken, the fragments will remain in place, attached to the vinyl. Keeping the broken glass on the vinyl means keeping it away from your family, friends, or customers!

Laminated glass is the right choice for a variety of applications. As mentioned, laminated glass is the best choice for all overhead installations. These include skylights and glass ceilings; the laminated glass eliminates the possibility of glass shards raining down on a person, pet, or fragile object.  In addition to gym windows, laminated glass works well for sidelights (windows right beside a door). It makes these windows, and thus the doors, more resistant to intrusion. Since it is also important to keep shower glass intact, laminated glass can be selected in place of the more common tempered glass. Likewise, it could be used for glass shelves or on display cases. For the maximum in safety and security, you also have the option of choosing laminated tempered glass, which offers greater durability.
