The principle benefits of toughened Laminated glass are its strength and performance under impact. It is capable of withstanding very large loads and in the unlikely event of being broken the resulting fragments will be retained by the interlayer. When properly glazed, it will normally remain in place until replacement is convenient.
The strength of ESG TuffLam makes it ideal for use as Glass Balustrades and barriers, Glass Canopies, Glass floors, fins and for bomb blast resistance.
The interlayers have additional benefits. Standard interlayers reduce sound transmission, particularly at the higher frequencies. High performance acoustic interlayers provide enhanced sound control. Ultra-violet light transmission (between 320 and 380 nanometres) is reduced by 99% and solar control (tinted) interlayers are also available.
