At AIG, we understand that unique glazing requirements and settings may call for customised solutions. That’s why we offer tailor-made configurations of laminated glass – using different types and thicknesses of glass, matched to appropriate interlayer materials – to achieve the right performance characteristics, colours and effects to suit your project.
Laminated glass offers premium safety because of its impact resistance and integrity in the event of breakage. While a conventional sheet of glass might shatter into fragments or shards if broken, a laminated panel tends to maintain full-sheet integrity if broken thanks to the binding effect of the PVB interlayer. For this reason, toughened laminated glass is mandatory, for instance, in overhead sloped glazing in Australian buildings.
Laminated glass can also be used for customised security applications – from superior impact resistance in a sporting venue, all the way up to bulletproof glass!
In addition, laminated glass can be designed to optimise noise abatement, minimize UV penetration into rooms of precious furnishings, or to reduce heat gain in summer. All these qualities can be delivered simply and affordably through customised interlayers and coatings matched to the right glass sheets.
NB: customized laminated glass can solve design and privacy conundrums by providing the perfect amount of reflectivity and colour.
In other words, AIG customised laminated glass is a ‘problem solver’. When specified in consultation with AIG consultants, our products can help enhance the function, comfort and appearance of any space.
