Laminated glass is the process by which two or more layers of glass are
bonded together using PVB (polyvinyl butyl) or EVA (ethylene vinyl
acetate) using heat and pressure. This process can be carried out using
annealed or toughened / tempered glass of any thickness to create safety
or acoustic glass in large panel sizes.
We are told the laminating of two glasses and using Colour fabric metals or wood can be liberating!
Fabric laminating gives you the opportunity to encapsulate a rich selection of fabrics within protective glass layers.
Using regular woven cloth, delicately constructed textiles or printed
fabrics combines the beauty, colour & texture of the fabric with the
structural strength & practicality of glass.
We can help you can large structural glass panels up to 3 x 6m, depending on the fabric.
Our coloured PVB interlayer allows for a rich palette of colour
permutations, which range from subtle transparent and translucent
colours to opaque that can be used for a wide range of applications
including screens, partitions and cladding.
Interlayers come in a standard colour range of 14 colours, which can be combined to give a palette of over 800 colours.
Colour laminated glass is manufactured using standard clear float glass,
however it is also available in specialist glasses including low iron
(crystal clear) and a variety of body tints; blue, green, bronze and
grey. The type & thickness of the glass will have an effect on the
Colour laminating can also be combined with other decorative glass
products and finishes such as kiln forming ,sandblasting and colour
Glass can be toughened / tempered or laminated to required national & international safety standards.
Tailor-made to clients' requirements, including curved to kiln form
colour laminate radius, cut to complex shapes and drilled or
Our glass suppliers have pioneered and developed the use of decorative
structural glass laminates with a wide selection of material inclusions
and interlayers. Included in our standard range are a rich variety of
wood veneers, with a choice of 8/10 veneers to choose from.
Combing the rich natural aesthetic qualities of wood with the practical
structural and aesthetic qualities of glass we can offer architects and
designers a wealth of possibilities for cladding and screening buildings
and for use internally for partitions, wall finishes and flooring.
Various bespoke designs and finishes can be combined with veneer such as
etching to create matt surfaces veneers cut and shaped to create
patterns and designs.
Wood veneers are generally produced as single sided with a translucent finish to the back.
Metal meshes from finely woven gauzes to thickly braided weaves and
decoratively etched metal foils, offers an innovative range of
structural and design possibilities. These materials allow the
transparency, rigidity and structural qualities of glass to be combined
with the decorative and aesthetic qualities of the metal weaves and
