Laminated glass in buildings
Nowadays, glass strongly influences modern architectural design. As building exteriors must resist different environmental stresses, the type of glass must be carefully selected. In this article,
Glass On Web would like to discuss the benefits of the laminated glass used in commercial buildings.
Laminated glass is considered by many people the best solution to cover commercial buildings while guaranteeing high impact-resistance. First of all, the plastic interlayer holds the glass in
place even when the glass is broken, providing significant protection against dangerous flying or falling glass fragments from the structure. Secondly, the structure itself offers better
protection against hurricanes, wind-borne debris, burglaries, firearms, bomb blasts and other objects. Laminated glass can also significantly reduces noise from the street as well as control
solar energy transmittance. Selected links will show you several structures that use laminated glass and some other related information.
