Below we’ll highlight this material’s best characteristics, decorative elements, and accompanying applications and uses. 

 

Benefits

Consider adding decorative details to your laminated glass project for a unique, customized appearance.

Laminated glass is manufactured by an experienced fabricator, such as Dillmeier Glass Company. This five-step process comprises design, cutting, and shaping. It's rounded out by clean-room preparation, whereby glass is heated and sandwiched around clear and plastic resin. 

This material increases natural sunlight while reducing harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, improves soundproofing, and possesses shatter-proof properties. Transparency and opacity can be adjusted for privacy levels. 

Laminated glass has transitioned into a viable and sought-after personal protective equipment (PPE) compliance solution for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) social-distancing guidelines to combat the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Other qualities include durability, modest pricing, and use-case versatility. Laminated glass is also easy to clean and sanitize.
