The clear design of laminated glass panels is essential for their long-term stability. Design considerations include maximum stress and displacement, overall size and thickness. Laminated glass panels must be designed to withstand such load conditions, but the best design method is to use structural engineering principles. The following will discuss the design and application principles of laminated glass and outline the advantages of this product.
The main advantage of laminated glass over conventional glass is its resistance to harmful environmental elements. When used with UV-absorbing additives in the sandwich, the material protects the interior from UV damage. This is an especially important advantage in places where the risk of break-ins is high. In addition, this type of glass prevents cracking during natural or man-made disasters. It also helps to keep the glass intact within the frame.
In addition to structural uses, the use of laminated glass is also common in architecture. Its safety, superior strength and ability to enhance the visual quality of a space make it a perfect material for architectural purposes. It can be manufactured in flat, curved and tempered forms, or it can be thermally strengthened. Interior layers can also be colored or wired to meet aesthetic or privacy requirements. In addition, it can be cut or drilled, making it easy to install.
In addition to strength, the PVB sandwich provides enhanced visibility. On impact, glass shards tend to stick to the PVB sandwich, minimising the risk of injury or further impact. Moreover, PVB film absorbs shock energy good, fast, to ensure that the broken glass is not broken. This also helps the glass retain its shape and prevent further impact damage. In addition, laminated glass is extremely resistant to penetration.
