Laminated safety glass

TG-PROTECT® consists of two or more panes of glass joined together using an extremely tear-resistant polyvinyl butyral interlayer, which may be transparent, toned or translucent. In case of breakage, the pane 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.

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® can be used in a wide range of applications.

In addition TG-PROTECT® is available as impact, break-in and bullet resistant, laminated safty glass  TG-PROTECT®-TVG (certified for use in buildings) and TG-PROTECT®-ESG.
