Laminated Glass - Safety Glass in NZ

Stake Glass has its own in-house laminating facility to manufacture laminated glass here in NZ. We can provide laminated glass in a variety of glass types, glass combinations, thicknesses and sizes. We can also provide glass combinations with dichroic, coloured or decorative interlayers. Stake Glass can process your laminated glass to your suit your specific requirements.

We provide the following laminated glass products:

  • Laminated Glass
  • Laminated Toughened Glass
  • Dichroic Laminated Glass
  • Decorative Laminated Glass
  • Tinted Laminated Glass
  • Acoustic Laminated Glass
  • White Laminated Glass

Laminated Glass is made from two sheets of glass bound together with a plastic or resin interlayer.  The standard and minimum interlayer is 0.38mm thick, however other interlayers are also available in 0.76, 1.14 or 1.52mm.

Laminated Glass has a similar impact strength resistance to Annealed Float Glass. However, it does not shatter and spread when broken, instead remains intact on its plastic or resin interlayer, protecting people from injury. This is why many building codes worldwide require laminated glass.
Laminated glass is considered an A grade safety glass in accordance with AS/NZ 2208 and other international standards. If used in glass skylights, sloped or overhead glazing installations the glass will not fall out if broken, providing additional safety. 

In residential and commercial projects, Laminated Glass provides many benefits, safety, security, sound reduction, solar energy control and UV control (99%UV blocked).   

By using special interlayers and or heat treated glass it can have high Strength.  In combination with printed, coloured or special inserts, it can also be used to create Decorative Effects. 

Laminated Toughened Glass in NZ

Toughened Glass is up to five times stronger than Standard Annealed Glass, offering the highest impact resistance.  Laminated Glass does not shatter and spread when broken, instead it remains intact on its plastic or resin interlayer. 
Therefore, the main benefits of Laminated Toughened Glass are its strength and performance under impact, preventing serious injury.  
The strength of laminated toughened glass makes it ideal for use as balustrades, balconies, pool fencing, overhead canopies, internal partitions, glass stairways and glass floors. 
Laminated Toughened Glass is considered an A grade safety glass in accordance with AS/NZ 2208. 


Dichroic Laminated Glass

Dichroic Laminated Glass colour shifts when viewed from different angles and in different lighting conditions. 

There are many applications for this type of architectural glass such as glass partition walls, double glazed units, balustrades, shower door glass, shading fins, artistic glass and glass furniture.


Decorative Laminated Glass 

Decorative Laminated Glass can be produced with a variety of materials, which are then placed in between the interlayers.   
We offer a range of Interlayers: colour filters, textiles, textures, mirrors, and more to create unique finishes. 
Applications: Splashbacks, Doors, Interior Partitions, Balustrades, Wall Cladding, Signage, Flooring Stairs, Store Fronts, Counter Tops, Flooring Panels, Canopies, Art Installations 


Tint Laminated Glass 

Tinted Glass is produced by adding metal oxides to the raw materials during the float glass process.  The most common tints include green, blue, grey and bronze. 
This type of glass absorbs solar energy, therefore reducing and helping control the amount of heat, visible light and ultraviolet rays that are transmitted through your windows and glass applications (79%-94% UV blocked). 

Tinted Glass is used in window or glass applications that require privacy or a reduction in solar heat flowing into homes and buildings. 

Acoustic Laminated Glass 

Acoustic Laminated Glass is made from two sheets of glass permanently bonded together with one or more acoustic interlayer.

The acoustic interlayer reduces noise by absorbing the sound energy and preventing the sound vibrations from travelling through the glass.  

White Laminated Glass 

White Laminated glass is commonly known as Translucent or Opalescent laminated glass. It is entirely opaque, so you are not able to see through either side, however it does allow light to transfer through the glass. 
An opaque interlayer provides White Laminated glass with the appearance of sandblasted or etched glass, giving you a frosted look.
