What is Laminated Glass and do I need it?
Laminated Glass is special type of glass that holds itself together when broken, thus making it safer and more secure. During manufacturing, there is a very strong adhesive layer (called PVB) that is sandwiched between two layers of glass. When the glass is broken, the PVB layer between the two pieces of glass holds it all together and makes it very hard for someone to get through it, the glass will remain stuck together and can still keep wind and rain out until it can be replaced. Due to its strength it stops the glass from breaking it large fragments and is safer overall. Another benefit is that in some cases, the laminated glass can be better for sound proofing due to the PVB layer. Standard toughened glass is strong enough and takes some force to break, in most cases this is just as good, but for those who want to maximise security, laminated glass can be a cheap way to improve it.
