We use a range of quality laminated glass products, for application in buildings, homes and other uses. Our laminated glass is made when two pieces of glass are joined together by a tough interlayer, called a polyvinyl butyral (PVB) plastic interlayer that is bonded between the two pieces of glass under heat and pressure. The result is a high-performance glass material that can withstand hard blows from a solid object – and should the window break, the fragments stick to the interlayer and so the integrity of the window is maintained.

Toughened glass is used when strength, thermal resistance and safety are important considerations, such as in display case windows, shower doors, glass patio doors. In commercial structures, tempered glass is used for unframed assemblies such as frameless doors, structurally loaded applications and any that would be dangerous in the case of a human impact.
Toughened glass is made from annealed glass via a thermal tempering process. The glass is placed onto a roller table, taking it through a furnace that heats it to above its annealing point of 600 °C. The glass is then rapidly cooled with forced draughts of air while the inner portion of the glass remains free to flow for a short time.
