Custom Laminated Glass

Custom Laminated Glass

Use Custom Laminates to unlock limitless structural and aesthetic design opportunities

Custom laminating permanently bonds two or more panels of glass with structural interlayers to achieve vastly increased strength over regular laminated glass. These interlayers open up almost limitless applications for glass - swimming pool walls, stair treads, floors, ceilings and more.

PROJECT SHOWCASE
Custom Laminated Balustrade Fins: North Beach House
Engineered glass fins deliver a functional, visually striking alternative to curved glass staircase balustrades, where small internal radius dimensions do not accommodate curved glass panels. This case study reviews the use of glass fins as an alternative to curved glass within the award winning MBA Best Overall Home in Australia - North Beach House.
Structural interlayers
Leverage the potential of SGP and DG41 structural interlayers to achieve radical new design outcomes
Engineering certification
As an engineered solution, we can assist with all aspects of engineering certification to ensure compliance with all relevant standards
Combine with decorative treatments
Incorporate with decorative solutions such as ImagInk, DigiGlass or Vanceva to create wide ranging aesthetic outcomes

FAQs

All our most commonly asked questions. Can't see your answer? Please call us on 1300 040 799 or get in touch via contact form below.

How is custom laminated glass produced?

Laminated glass is produced by joining two or more glass panels with an interlayer, typically PVB or SGP. The glass is permanently bonded by applying heat and high pressure in an auto-clave, a vacuum chamber.

What is the difference between PVB and SGP?

While both PVB and SGP offer excellent optical clarity, SGP (SentryGlas Plus Interlayer) is 5x stronger and up to 100x stiffer than PVB. SGP was created by DuPont and is produced for the global glass market by Kuraray.

SGP retains structural integrity upon failure, making it suitable for frameless applications like Vista View Frameless Balustrades. In comparison, PVB is a cost-effective solution for applications where higher structural performance is not required. Standard PVB interlayers will not retain structural integrity upon breakage.

What decorative options are there for custom laminates?

We are pleased to be able to offer a wide range of decorative finishes for Custom Laminated Glass. Vanceva provides a range of block color options, DigiGlass offers digitally printed interlayers for high resolution printing, and ImagInk ceramic printing allows for unique laminating solutions and reproducing artworks on glass.

Are custom laminates Grade-A safety glass?

Yes, both laminated annealed glass and laminated toughened glass are classified as Grade-A safety glass according to AS 1288-2006 (Australian Standards) 2023. Our custom laminates fall under both of these categories.

Do you provide an engineering service for custom laminates?

Yes, we can offer engineering certification for custom laminate projects if required. Please contact us for further details.

Can you install my custom laminated glass?

For specialised glazing projects, we have an experienced structural glazing team who can provide a complete measure and installation service. Please contact us for details.
