Laminated safety glass

TG-PROTECT®-ESG consists of two or more sheets of safty glass joined together using an extremely tear-resistant polyvinyl butyral interlayer, which may be transparent, toned or translucent. In case of breakage, the sheet has a residual load-bearing capability due to the interlayer - fragments and slivers remain attached to the interlayer. The risk of injury is considerably reduced. Therefore TG-PROTECT®-ESG is very suitable for passive safety glazing.

With a size of up to 3,210 x 18,000 mm and integrated colour or noise-reduction layers as well as diverse processing and finishing alternatives, TG-PROTECT®-ESG can be used in a wide range of applications.

In addition TG-PROTECT®-ESG is available in the safety classes impact, break-in and bullet resistant as well as TG-PROTECT®-TVG, a heat-strengthened glass.
