Lamination

Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds 2 or more pieces of glass together with a PVB interlayer.  When broken, the interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded, and its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. Laminated glass is normally used when there is a possibility of human impact or where the glass could fall if shattered. Popular applications include doors, partitions, skylights, windows, display cases, table tops and much more.

Tempering

Tempered glass is a type of safety glass that has been specially treated to strengthen glass by 4 to 6 times compared to regular glass. When broken, tempered glass will usually shatter into small fragments instead of sharp shards, making it less likely to cause severe injury and deep lacerations. As a result of its safety and strength, tempered glass is commonly used for exterior & interior doors, windows, table tops, countertops, railing systems, flooring, partitions, and much more.
