What is laminated glass?
Laminated glass consists of two layers of glass which are permanently bonded together with interlayers, which work together to create a dense and durable material.
Here at Express Glass Warehouse, we have an assortment of laminated glass combinations with varying qualities in terms of thickness, glass combinations, and coatings, which can produce increased insulation or low levels of emissions.
What are the uses of laminated glass?
Laminated glass is extremely resourceful and can be utilised for the following:
- Glass floors
- Glass stairs
- Glass roofs
- Display cabinets
What are the main benefits of laminated glass?
The durability of laminated glass means it is almost impossible to break, which means it is insusceptible to breaks ins, preventing anyone with unauthorised access from entering your property.
Even in the rare event of breakage, laminated glass would not shatter, and therefore avoids any injuries.
Some forms of laminated glass are made up of low-emissivity glass, which reduces heat and – in turn – reduces the use of air-conditional and its harmful emissions.
Reduction in noise pollution
The thicker the laminated glass is the higher the noise reduction, as the thickness disrupts travelling noise waves.
The density of laminated glass is extremely useful in the event of tumultuous weather, as it will continue to retain its frame and reduce accident risks.
Laminated glass is not just about safety. It is also a great way to add aesthetic, as laminated glazing is available in varying colours, tints and tones which can easily enhance the look of a property.
Why is Express Glass Toughening the best place to buy laminated glass?

We have an extensive range of products including clear, acoustic, white and toughened laminated glass, which can be constructed with a thickness from 4mm to 19mm. Our prices range depending on the type of glass and its thickness, as well as any additional coloured interlayers or bespoke designs you may wish to add.
Clear Laminated Glass
Our clear laminated glass, which is known as Pilkington Optilam is made up of two layers of glass which are laminated together with an extremely tough and dense plastic, known as Polyvinylbutryal (PVB). This type of laminated glass is great for improving security, as the plastic is extremely hard to penetrate, ensuring that your property is secure.
Acoustic Laminated Glass
The acoustic laminated glass we offer is Stapid Silence, which consists of two or more sheets of glass bonded together with one or more interlayers of PVB. This type of glass is usually utilised in double glazing, which substantially reduces noise pollution. This is especially great for offices located in noisy areas.
White Lamiated Glass
We offer a thickness of 6.4mm for our white laminated glass, which is also Pilkington Optilam, with interlayers of PVB. This type of glass can be used internally or externally where a white or satin effect is required.
Toughened Lamianted Glass
Our state-of-the-art machinery allows us to combine both the toughening and laminating process, to ensure our glass is extremely resistant to damage.
Our toughened laminated glass is constructed with the glass interlayer Pujol Evalam, which is an extremely durable, reliable and transparent material. The characteristics of the material allow it to be used internally and externally. It is mostly used for balcony balustrades and canopies, which are exposed to all weather conditions.
