Enhanced safety for architectural laminated glass

Globally, architects and designers rely on Saflex® Clear PVB interlayers in laminated glass to help meet regional standards for safety glass.

Protecting people and property, Saflex interlayer adds post-breakage safety and security to laminated safety glass applications. Unlike monolithic glass, properly designed laminated glazing made with Saflex interlayer reduces the risk of injury from broken glass because the glass adheres to the interlayer after impact.  By holding glass in place, the interlayer provides protection by preventing the release of glass shards from becoming dangerous flying or falling glass fragments.  This may also help keep the system integral once broken—protecting the building envelope.

 

Designing security into laminated glass

The trend toward using more glass in building design has increased the need for additional protection.  Saflex® Clear interlayer addresses this need by adding reliable security features to laminated glass.  While ordinary glass windows can allow rapid entry by nefarious people, laminated glass is versatile in both preventing injuries and rapid entry while protecting the interior of the building.  Unlike monolithic glass, laminated glass made with Saflex Clear PVB interlayer helps ensure glass stays in place, and resists entry or penetration in cases of bomb blasts, ballistic attack, forced entry, or similar other types of vandalism.

The security performance provided by Saflex Clear PVB interlayers is also available when combined with the Vanceva® Colors and Earth Tones interlayer systems.  The architectural Saflex and Vanceva interlayers are compatible allowing architects and designers to create safe spaces without sacrificing style or comfort.
