Laminated safety glass
can be used for many purposes
from pedestrian safety to bullet
resistance. Laminated glass is a
type of safety glass that stays
together when impacted with
enough force to break the glass. In
the event of breaking, it is held in
together by an vinyl interlayer,  
between its two or more layers of
resistance. Laminated glass is a

keeps the glass. The interlayer
keeps the layers of glass bonded
even when broken, and its high
strength prevents the glass from
breaking up into large sharp pieces
that can fall out of its frame other
wise causing potentially severe
injury. This produces a
characteristic "spider web" pattern
whether an impact is great enough
to completely penetrate the glass
or not.

possibility of human impact or
where the glass could fall if
shattered. Skylight glazing and
automobile windshields typically
use laminated glass. In situations
where bullet-resistant construction
is normally used when there is a is
required a thicker multi layered
laminated glass is typically used.
Vehicles and buildings that require
more security such as armoured
cars and trucks, banks and
buildings like the White House.
Laminated glass is often used in
exterior storefronts, curtain walls
and windows. The interlayer also
gives the glass a much higher
sound insulation rating, due to the
damping effect, and also blocks a
good percentage of incoming UV
radiation.
Tempered Glass
Tempered glass is often referred to as "heat strengthened" It
is more resistant to breakage than normal float glass. And if it
is broken, it usually breaks into relatively small particles, which
are less likely to cause serious injury.
Characteristics
•Approximately five times stronger than annealed glass of
equal thickness
•Greater resistance to thermally-induced stress than heat-
strengthened or annealed glass  
•Tempered glass is mandated in many parts of the world by
individual country regulations or specifications
Applications
•Suitable where safety glazing is required by building codes or design specifications
•Fire knock-out panels
•All glass entrances and storefronts
•Extreme wind loads
•Fireplace enclosures
•Auto glass applications
•counter tops
•Table tops
•Patio tables
and any glass application that requires a more durable glass for safety.
Availability
•Clear, Green, Gray, Bronze, Solar reflective, Low-E, and much more.
•Thicknesses from 3 mm (1/8") to 18 mm (3/4"); maximum width 2.4 m (96"), and maximum lengths up to 4.3
m (160")
•Other glass thicknesses, colors or patterns may be available on request.
