About the Product

Our Toughened Laminate is made from multiple layers of Toughened glass, laminated together using an EVA interlayer. One of the fundamental benefits to multiple layers of glass being laminated together is that, should one panel break, the additional intact panel will still be in position while keeping hold of the broken pieces. Even in the event that all of the glass panels were to break, the interlayer adheres so strongly to the glass everything is held together.

We can produce Laminate in any combination of Toughened or Non-Toughened glass, catering for any specification required.

We are able to laminate up to a maximum overall thickness of 80mm.

Interlayers are available in a range of different colours and provides the possibility to have images such as logos, textile fabrics and frosted effects within the center of the glass.

Toughened Laminate is ideal for Balustrading, Doors, Partitions and Flooring as it is a Safety Glass and is commonly required in current building regulations.

Crackle Effect Glass / Shatterlam

Crackle Effect, also known as Shatterlam, is created by laminating 3 layers of glass together and breaking the centre pane.

To achieve this effect the centre pane must be toughened, however the Upper and Lower panel can be of any desired glass type, toughened or annealed.

Mirror can also be used as the rear / underside / lower pane to add a reflection making Crackle Effect glass suitable as wall panels, table tops and worktops.

All shapes are available along with cutouts and holes making this product suitable for a wide range of applications.

Switchable Privacy Glass

Using a special interlayer we can produce glass that can switch from Opaque to Transparent at the touch of a button, providing privacy when its needed. This glass is ideal for environments such as Office Conference rooms or an alternative use could be Showrooms / Shops where valuable products need to be kept out of sight during closed hours.

Both Partitions and Doors are available in switchable privacy glass.

Effects

Laminating multiple layers of glass together opens up many new design possibilities, as we can insert layers of materials or films with effects between the layers of glass.

By having three layers or more, Crackle Effect Glass (also known as Shatter Lam) becomes possible. This is usually achieved by laminating a Toughened panel in-between other glass layers, then breaking the Toughened center layer. An interesting variation on this is to have the lower layer made from Mirror, reflecting up through all of the layers, creating a Crackled Mirror effect

Leadtime / Turnaround
