Glass Rainscreen

Laminated glass combines the durability of glass with the toughness of plastic and is made by bonding two layers of glass, using heat and pressure with one or more interlayers such as SGP or PVB.Our glass laminated solutions are tempered and thermally toughened glass interlayers - an interlayer is found on impact glass, the energy absorbing polymer material between two glass panels that upon impact keeps the glass intact.
We offer two interlayer solutions;
- SGP (SentryGlas) which extends the performance of laminated and tempered glass systems. because of its strength, clarity and durability, it is an excellent choice for the most demanding architectural applications and offers improved ballistic protection and thinner construction possibilities
- PVB (PolyVinyl Butyral) the most common interlayer used in the window industry suitable for semi-visible fixings.

Benefits of using a glass as a creative material for rainscreen facades:

• Safety - laminated glass with a PVB or SGP interlayer resists penetration from impact and the glass adheres to the interlayer when broken and does not break into dangerous shards
• Sound control - laminated glass significantly improves sound absorption, the properties of the interlayer providing a damping effect
• Energy control - laminated glass with a tint can reduce heat gains and help reduce energy costs UV control - the interlayer provides control of damaging UV rays
• Stability - laminated glass is durable, maintaining colour and strength
