Laminated safety glass
Essentially two pieces of annealed glass bonded together by a thin laminate interlayer.
Positives for this glass are its safety features.
Because of the inter layer between the two pieces of glass, if broken the glass will crack but will not break into those dangerous pieces that annealed glass breaks into.
It’s negatives are that it is more expensive than annealed glass and it is more than twice as thick.
This makes it heavier restricting what frames it can fit into.
It is used in many places around the home, specifically in doors, framed showers, framed pool fences and sidelights.
Business such as jewelry shops can also benefit from laminated safety glass;
