— What is Laminated Glass? —
Laminated Glass is a composite material consisting of two or more sheets of glass permanently bonded together by a plastic interlayer. When subjected to impact, the bond between the glass and interlayer adhere any broken fragments, keeping the glass intact and resisting penetration.
This important breakage characteristic significantly reduces the likelihood of serious injury, qualifying laminated glass as a Grade A safety glass in accordance with AS/NZ 2208 and other international standards. In addition, the glass will not fall out if used in sloped or overhead glazing applications providing environmental protection.
Laminated glass offers greater protection for people and property by providing an effective barrier from attack. Although the glass will break if hit with a hammer, brick or similar object, the interlayer can resist penetration, ensuring any attempt to enter a premises will be slow and noisy.
— Why you need Laminated Glass? —
This is the choice if you want a totally frame-less balustrade without any handrails. According to the regulation, if you select the laminated glass to build your balustrade, you DO NOT need to select any handrail, which means your balustrade will be totally frame less, and your view will be fully kept.
Moreover, the laminated glass is safer to you and your families. Even if you select the SGP laminated glass, when the glass is attacked, the attacked glass will tend to remain keeping standing besides the deck and pool, until it can be replaced at a convenient time. The type of laminated glass required will depend on the level of security required.
