BIG GLASS CONFIGURATIONS AVAILABLE UP TO 130” x 236”
Insulating Laminated Glass provides the solar controlling properties of an insulating unit along with the safety features of the laminated inboard component. This allows the flexibility to design with hundreds of combinations of tinted glass, high-performance coatings, silk-screen patterns and pigmented interlayers, together or alone. In addition, Insulating Laminated Glass enhances acoustical performance, ultraviolet light protection, and the laminated component is designed to remain integral in the opening should glass damage occur. For this reason, insulating laminated glass is utilized for skylights or other overhead glazing applications.
Often the laminated inboard component is required to provide protection against man-made threats or natural disasters such as hurricanes, bomb blasts or forcible-entry. For information please see our pages about Hurricane and Security glazing.
A typical insulating laminated glass configuration is 1-5/16” thick overall constructed as follows:
While insulating laminated glass provides numerous benefits from protection to safety to acoustic improvements, the solar performance between an insulating unit and the insulating laminated counterpart is nominal.
