ClimaGuard® LamiGlass® creates a comfortable and protective indoor environment. This product bonds a plastic interlayer between panes of glass to achieve a variety of benefits for homeowners.
While virtually indistinguishable from monolithic glass of the same thickness, LamiGlass is powerfully resistant to impact. It can provide security from vandalism and deliberate physical attack. However, if it should break, the glass will tend to remain adhered to the plastic interlayer, minimizing the risk of injury from sharp edges and flying or falling glass pieces.
LamiGlass controls sound, reducing interior noise levels and keeping inside conversations private. It achieves superior sound transmission class (STC) and outdoor-indoor transmission class (OITC) ratings for sound transmission through glass.
LamiGlass blocks 99.9 percent of harmful UV rays to protect home furnishings and artwork from fading and damage.
