Laminated Glass and The Future Of Doors and Windows Security


Transparent Strength: Laminated Glass in Windows and Composite Doors

Laminated Glass in Windows and Composite Doors

In the realm of home security and aesthetic appeal, the choice of glass in your windows and composite doors is paramount. Laminated glass emerges as a frontrunner, marrying durability with elegance.Its robust layers stand guard against unforeseen impacts, while its clear vista invites natural light into your abode.

Let’s unfold the layers of laminated glass and explore how it elevates the fortitude and finesse of windows and composite doors.


What is Laminated Glass?

Laminated glass is composed of two or more glass sheets with an interlayer of plastic or resin, offering enhanced safety and sound insulation. Unlike standard toughened safety glass that shatters into small pieces when broken, laminated glass holds together due to the interlayer, providing a barrier and maintaining the structure.

This feature makes laminated glass a preferred choice for security-conscious applications in windows and composite doors, while toughened glass might be chosen for its cost-effectiveness despite its lesser safety attributes.

Benefits of Laminated Glass


The multi-layer structure of laminated glass makes it resilient against break-ins. Even when shattered, the interlayer holds the glass together, deterring unauthorised entry through the door.


Laminated glass, whether clear or tinted, amplifies the aesthetic appeal of composite doors, creating a sleek appearance while allowing the luxury of natural light.

Sound Proofing:

The interlayer in laminated glass acts as a sound barrier, significantly reducing noise transmission, which is a blessing in noisy urban areas.

UV Protection:

Laminated glass filters out up to 99% of harmful UV rays, thus protecting your interiors from sun fading, while still letting in a pleasant, natural light.

When do we recommend Laminated Glass?

It's personal preference. For us as door installers, there is not a rule where laminated glass is required, but it has to be toughened by law. We would recommend laminated glass for a door entrance that is discreet and not overlooked or in a rural area with very few neighbours as intruders have more time to break in without anyone noticing.

On a normal street, toughened glass is good enough as many burglars won’t try to break through the glass due to the noise, but it can happen still. Most of our composite doors have the option of laminated glass


Laminated glass is more than just a safety feature; it's an investment in peace of mind. Whether you're concerned about security, noise reduction, or UV protection, laminated glass offers a comprehensive solution.
