Laminated Glass


Laminated glass gives you the freedom to turn the medium of glass from transparent to sensually arresting.

Process


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


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.

Colour


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 chosen.
Colour laminating can also be combined with other decorative glass products and finishes such as kiln forming ,sandblasting and colour coating.
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 countersunk.

Wood veneers


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 mesh


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 meshes.
