Can you hear a car coming before you can see it? Are your carpets, drapes and furniture fading from too much sun? Do golf balls keep ending up on your dining room table? Are you concerned about how easily someone could brake a window to get into your home? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Laminated Glass might be your solution!
Laminated Glass is probably one of the best kept secrets in the glass industry. It’s uses are endless! If you live on a busy street, replacing your glass with laminated glass that is insulated will not only reduce your energy expenses but will dramatically reduce the noise level. The STC rating for laminated glass alone is a 35! That is almost as soft as a whisper or the rustling of the leaves. That is what we call some “peace and quiet.”
Now, I am not sure how much a Persian rug costs nor do I know how expensive the couch that no one is allowed to sit on was; but what I do know is that if the rug or couch is behind a west-facing window, we’re all in trouble. That is, unless you have laminated glass! The plastic inner layer not only cuts out the sound waves, it also blocks 99% of the harmful UV rays. This means the perfect red couch, will stay perfectly red.
As if those two reasons haven’t already convinced you of the wonders of laminated glass, what about the safety of your family? Laminated glass is not only a requirement for hurricane rated glass but most businesses actually prefer it due to the impact rating. The goal of laminated glass is to keep whatever is inside from going outside and to keep whatever is outside, outside.
