Toughened, Heat Strengthened & Acoustic
CT provide a wide range of glass for many different environments and functions. If you need help choosing the right glass please contact us and one of our Technical Specialists will be happy to help you.
Toughened glass thickness from 4-12mm can be used in applications such as Shower screens, Partitioning and components for the Shop fitting industry. Glass thickness from 15-19mm is often used in structural applications such as Balustrades and Canopies. Products can be laminated for additional safety and security. In addition Heat Soaking is also available to BS… read more
Toughened laminated glass consists of sheets of toughened safety glass bonded together with a tough plastic interlayer to enhance safety and security as well as retaining glass fragments in the event of breakage. Toughened laminated is available in a wide range of glasses and thicknesses and can be used to satisfy all safety glazing requirements… read more
Like toughened heat strengthened is heat treated but not to the same extent. The result is a glass that is resistant to thermal shock, is flatter than normal toughened glass, but is not a safety glass. When heat strengthened glass is broken it breaks into a small number of large pieces; similar to annealed glass.… read more
Heat soaking is an extra process that can be carried out on toughened glass to reduce the risk of spontaneous breakage through Nichol Sulphide (NiS) inclusions when the glass is in use. Heat soaking is a destructive test designed to break glass that is at risk, generally achieving a conversion rate of 90 to 95%. Heat soaking will… read more
DuPont™ SentryGlas® high-strength interlayer's help create safety glass that protects against bigger storms, larger impacts and higher deflection loads. SentryGlas® is up to 100 times stiffer and 5 times stronger than traditional PVB interlayers, giving architects and designers the ability to do more with less, creating innovative new spaces, while providing greater protection for occupants.… read more
Laminated safety glass produced with a TROSIFOL Sound Control interlayer can be supplied in toughened or annealed form and has all the outstanding security properties of standard laminated glass, as well as high sound insulation values, up to 2 dB better than float glass of the same thickness. read more
