The GLASS LAMINATING is the hot unification of two or several glass sheets of different thickness putting between them an EVA elastic foil. Such obtained finite product is called laminated or layered glass, with different uses due to its increased safety properties, along with the capacity to respond to the current architectural requirements.
The used FOIL can be:
Transparent Design is holding two cutting-edge lamination furnaces:
- PUJOL (2015) furnace for glass laminating with the size of 5000 x 2400 mm having a capacity of about 1870 sqm / day.
- JUMBO PUJOL HLH/4-5 furnace for glass laminating with the sizes of 6000×3200 mm (2021), with a capacity of around 200 sqm / day.
- Clarity of the finite product;
- High durability level in time.
SAFETY AND RESISTANCE OF THE LAMINATED GLASS
The laminated glass is used at the execution of the floors, canvases, stairs and glass banisters, due to its safety properties: in case of breaking, the glass fragments remain stuck through the inner foil, removing the personal injury risk.
Another important aspect in the day-to-day life is the protection against vandalism and burglary in the public and residential spaces. In case of impact, the windows, the stained glass or the glass walls having laminated glass in their composition, stay put and can be a solution if a proper laminated glass is chosen. The thickness and the structure of the anti-burglary glass is given by the security level required by the norms in force.
The laminated glass is also the base of the execution of the bulletproof glass or of the explosion-proof glass.
THE STRUCTURE OF THE LAMINATED GLASS
The number and the thickness of the glass sheets, as well as the number of the inter-layer EVA foils are established according to the size of the laminated glass, the utility and the resistance in case of impact or the weight they must bear. The safety level is increasing pro rata with the number of used foils. Moreover, the windows can be secured before the lamination in case mechanical clamping is used (holes, cuttings), thus increasing the resistance of the finite laminated glass.
Besides the safety and resistance properties, the laminated glass with foil responds to the current architectural and design requirements. Thus, glass of different thickness or color can be laminated in mass; different textiles, special printings, colored foils can be inserted between the glasses for the creation of certain multiple effects. Two sheets of colored glass (enameled in any RAL color) can be laminated with paint on the inside, to have color and opacity on both sides, preserving the shining of the glass on the outside at the same time. Thus doors, glass walls, banisters, shower cabins can be executed.
Transparent Design suggests you laminated glass with matted foil on the inside instead of the mechanically sandblasted glass, because it is much easier to preserve due to the removal of the staining risk in time of the sandblasting.

Glass has recently become an interior design element used and appreciated because of its qualities. Elegant and translucent, glass is the perfect solution not only for residential applications, but also for commercial office buildings, adding style and sophistication to a modern space.
Glass walls, glass doors, bespoke mirrors, bespoke shower enclosures, colored glass cladding, glass for stairs and balustrades, these are just some of the extremely varied solutions that we can offer.
