Guardian’s laminated glass will help you add exquisite beauty to residential and commercial spaces, or enhance performance with safety and sound control. Design and performance features are achieved by bonding two or more sheets of glass together with a durable plastic interlayer.
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.
Laminated glass controls sound, reducing interior noise levels and keeping inside conversations private. Laminated glass can also enhance the acoustic properties of a room, reducing echos, improving sound quality, and insulating against sound passing through walls to keep private conversations private, and to prevent noisy outside environments from disturbing occupants.
Guardian laminated glass is the answer for beautiful, transparent color. Using the Vanceva system from Solutia, Guardian laminated glass is available in any color of the rainbow. Use an accent color as a design statement or to delineate an area or function of a space using Guardian laminated glass. Laminated glass also blocks harmful ultraviolet rays, protecting home furnishings and artwork from fading and damage.
Depending on the properties required from the glass at least two sheets of glass are permanently bonded together using an extremely tough transparent interlayer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB). This assembly method allows many different types and thicknesses of glass and different thicknesses and colors of interlayer to be combined to provide a single glass with very specific properties for a host of different design applications.
