Glass brings beauty and function to our structures. S-LEC™ Standard Laminate technology helps solve the basic structural factors to enable laminated glazing concepts.
By combining the properties of safety, security and UV filtering, fabricators can achieve glazing design objectives with the essential performance functions required for today’s structures.
Tempered glass tends to shatter into fragments on impact. In laminated glass with S-LEC™ PVB, fragments will adhere to the film to minimize injuries occupants. Laminated glass with S-LEC™ Clear Laminate absorbs impact, prevents penetration, and resists shattering.
S-LEC™ Clear PVB filters out more than 99% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. This contributes to the reduction of skin damage to occupants, as well as the discoloration and deterioration of products, furnishings, and other surfaces. Display windows with S-LEC™ Clear Interlayer protect items on display from damage due to extended UV exposure.
Windows are traditionally an easy entry point for burglaries and vandalism. Laminated glass with S-LEC™ PVB resists penetration, even with heavy or sharp tools like a hammer or glass cutter. The strong, yet flexible properties of SEKISUI S-LEC™ Interlayer deter theft and intrusion, as it requires significantly more effort to breach the glass.
