Cornwall Glass Manufacturing produces Laminated Glass to your exact requirements for use in a variety of structural installations including; Walk on Roof Glass, Glass Units, Lantern and Pyramid Skylights, Blaustrading, Stairs and Pedestrian Bridges.
Our Tema LPB2536 Laminated Glass Line allows us to laminate glass sheets of up to 2500 mm x 3600 mm.
Installed in our St Austell Manufacturing site in November 2020, the new Bottero 520 LAM(e)/37, significantly increases the glass processor’s, laminate capability in line with exponential growth in demand. This includes a special adaptation of the cutting bridge to accommodate glass thicknesses of up to 20.8mm – believed to be unique in the UK.
In addition, our Laminating Cutting Table, Waterjet and CNC machines allow us to process laminated glass to most required sizes and shapes.
Laminated Glass provides structurally safer, stronger glass panel that if broken, holds glass fragments together.
There are a number of glass interlayer solutions, each with unique benefits:
PVB (polyvinyl butyrain) interlayered glass is a quality architectural and security glass with increased strength for use in commercial and domestic installations.
Uses for PVB Laminated Glass included:
- Balustrading and balconies
- Floor Glass including pedestrian walkways
- Walk on Roof Glass
- 0.4 mm safety glass
- 0.8 mm security glass required in Document Q standards for windows with pass P1A
- 1.5 mm anti bandit glass
Degradation from UV light is significantly reduced with the use of thicker lamination layers. Cornwall Glass can advise on the best made to measure options for any project. PVB laminated glass is kept as a stock item at our larger locations.
SentryGlas® interlayers are five time stronger than standard laminating interlayers and are used where a high specification is required for greater load bearing glazed installations.
The thick, rigid interlayer offers exceptional security, safety and energy efficiency in modern architectural designs. Optimising natural light with outstanding clarity, this interlayer allows true innovation in glass building design.
Uses for SentryGlass® laminated glass include:
- Structural glass including, floors, walkway bridges and stairs
- Minimal support glass canopies
- Balustrading and balconies
- Wind resistant windows, doors and rooflights
EVA (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate) interlayered glass provides flawless, distortion free lamination while ensuring first rate visual quality. This bespoke interlayer reduces the risk of moisture penetration compared to PVB laminated glass.
Uses for EVA laminated Glass include:
- Balustrading and blaconies
- Floor Glass – including pedestrian walkways and bridges
- Walk on Roof glass
- Safety glass
CIP (Cast in Place) interlayered glass is a skilled lamination process usually carried out by hand. The edges of the glass are tapped to determine the lamination thickness and the resin is then poured or pumped between two panes of glass, spreading evenly, removing any excess air before being placed under UV light. A faint witness line around the circumference of the glass gives way to glass with exceptional optical quality.
