Our unique “U” setup allows us to provide a lean manufacturing process for laminating glass that is between 24″ x 24″ to 100″ x 200″ and incorporates the use of our Class 100 clean room, which circulates air 24 times per hour. All of our laminated glass products block 99% of UV-light transmission, assist in sound reduction, and provide a higher level of security against forced entry.
What is laminated safety glass?
Laminated safety glass is constructed from two lites or more of annealed glass or tempered glass or a combination of both. The thickness of the safety glass and the overall substrate will vary, depending on the location of the install, code requirements, and the engineered installation method. The safety glass’ interlayer will also be determined based on the same parameters, as well as whether it is being created to provide privacy or to provide superior fallout protection by keeping the entire substrate in place if both lites break.
PFG Glass can provide an interlayer that satisfies the need for almost any project suitable for today’s modern building requirements.
Our safety glass product lines.
PFG Glass offers two different lines of safety glass: Trosifol® and Vanceva®.
Trosifol® Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB)
This thermoplastic film is a tough and resilient safety interlayer that is used in laminated architectural safety glass, as it offers safety advantages by retaining dangerous shards in case of glass breakage.
Trosifol® Translucent White PVB
Trosifol® Translucent White PVB is a type of interlayer that offers a satin-etch-like appearance and provides a white translucent appearance for added privacy without sacrificing on colour consistency and ease of maintenance. Trosifol® offers a selection of whites that allow for limited to zero light transmission.
Transifol® SentryGlas® Ionoplast (SGP)
This interlayer is five times stronger and up to 100 times stiffer than conventional laminating materials. In a stand-off railing application, SGP provides superior fallout protection for guard rails or windows that require a guard load at higher elevations or in areas where wind load is a hazard. SGP will not delaminate when exposed to the elements and is strong enough to resist thieves and strong winds. This product is available in both clear and translucent white.
Trosifol® SoundControl offers the ability to design a building envelope to reduce sound transmission by lowering OITC ratings in urban areas, while also keeping private conversations private when used as partition glass.
Vanceva® colour PVB layers make it easy to add a splash of colour to any project, as there is no end to the number of colour combinations you can create. Vanceva® interlayers are available in both clear and opaque colour combinations.
