Laminated glass is popular to replace frequently broken windows in a wooden or uPVC frame for its ability to be strong and reliable, and is the type that goes through a special treatment during manufacture. It offers a high security standard for residential and commercial properties.
What is laminated glass? Unlike toughened glass, laminated glazing theoretically has the same strength as normal glass. However, there is a tough PVB plastic interlayer between two panes which bonds them together for better impact resistance. The PVB layer is a resin bond that if the glass breaks, it will hold the broken pieces in place. This is much safer than having sharp pieces falling to the floor and causing an injury.
