The Anatomy of Tinted Laminated Glass

black and white microscopeWith double pane and laminated glass installations, single pane glass windows have become dated, inefficient, archaic, and ultimately obsolete.

Single pane glass windows can even cost you money whereas laminated glass installations could save you money among several other benefits.

How Laminated Glass Works

Laminated glass has three layers, two glass panes and an inner PVB or SGP layer, which are fused together.

Upon impact, the outer layer is what cracks while the inner glass pane remain intact; this is beneficial for homeowners who are subject to severe hurricanes or potential break-ins to protect against unwanted intruders.

The interlayer of PVB/SGP also blocks about 99% of Ultraviolet rays which can help you reduce your energy bills.

Adding a tint to your laminated glass windows will help absorb solar radiation as it enters through the glass, thereby reducing heat and light transfer into the room.
