glass is made by a heat and pressure process that laminates two or more
sheets of glass with a flexible inter-layer between them and most
commonly ranges in thickness from 4.4 mm to 13.5 mm –
thickness above 13.5 mm tend to offer bullet-resistance.
The safety aspects of this glass result from the inter-layer which
prevents the glass disintegrating if broken and also acts as a
preventative barrier against penetration. By using a tinted
inter-layer, laminated glass can be used to reduce heat transmission.
The plastic properties of the inter-layer act as a sound dampener and
can provide sound control equivalent to that of ordinary glass of twice
Safety glass is typically used in shop fronts, balconies, stair
railings and roof glazing. All Central Glass and Glazing safety glass
conforms to BS6206.
