An Introduction To Laminated Glass

Laminated glass is kind of glass that’s created by sandwiching a Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB) interlayer between 2, or more, pieces of glass. The benefit of exploitation shatterproof glass is that it are often safer once broken over alternative varieties of glass. When broken, the glass adheres to the interlayer, rather than shattering and severance of the frame.

Laminated glass also can provide natural philosophy management by reducing sound transmission through it. It can offer protection from crooked objects in minor weather events by fascinating energy impact of flying rubble while not shattering out of the frame. It can offer security in a window and door lite, resisting full penetration which can cause serious injury. This makes it a smart answer for replacement out-of-date glass in some buildings.

Safe Transport

Investments in appropriate transportation equipment and necessary personal protective gear, with the institution of maintenance and safety , pay off in the long term.  When transporting glass from the shop to the job site cutting corners can be costly. Glass breakage hits the bottom line, and accidents can cause injuries, time lost, and in the worst fatalities.

The first step to protecting employees and preventing breakage during transport is investing in professional glass transport racks. Despite a wide array of glass rack options on the market, Bear Glass  professional transport rack are the best.

Despite the growing trend among glass shop owners toward professional rack systems, in part because of the increasing sophistication of the glass systems they are being asked to install. Heavy shower doors, decorative glasses and other higher price point products require secure rack systems that better ensure safe transport. “We are seeing more and more shops that want to look more professional and be more professional. Bear Glass are using professional racks and trucks.

Minimize breakage by maintaining racks. Companies should work with the best rack and truck or van system for their requirements. Customers should also consider the load restrictions of the rack system as well as the vehicle itself, as overloading can be dangerous and harmful to vehicle performance. Overloading is one of the most common mistakes we see. “Bear Glass does not exceed  the weight range of the truck and stack the racks beyond the legal weight limit. We limit the loading space relative to the capacity of the vehicle. That is the way we are looking out for safety.”

Truck power is also important to consider in terms of load capacity. “Bear Glass want to make sure customers get as heavy duty  truck as possible

Our Rent A GlassTruck.com ensure that the vehicle can handle the loads of the glass rack. Once customers purchase a glass or mirror, they need to ensure best practices for maintenance and safety.

Most common transportation and handling mistakes:

Overloading racks

Handling glass without personal protective equipment

Unbalanced loads

Using trucks without sufficient power

Neglecting rack maintenance

Midcentury Kitchen wherere solid pieces of glass that have been painted on the back and then installed. I think they look amazing!  Now obviously, those are brightly colored backsplashes in neutral kitchens, and my situation will be quite different. But it still got my creative juices flowing.

I couldn’t believe it!  That’s totally do-able!

There are several other ideas If you  want to try as well, such as using a stenciled design on the back of the glass, and then one paint technique that I have in mind that uses a spray bottle of paint, and then another that creates a “gold flake” effect, and yet another where I create a marble effect using golds instead of gray paints.  Andyou might even want to try some sort of “mercury glass” effect using gold paints instead of silver.

So you have lots of other paint-on-glass ideas swimming around in my head that you want to try out.  If I do eventually land on a tile backsplash, it’ll be because I’ve exhausted other possibilities.  But for now, I’m really wanting to come up with something that’s beautiful and unique to my kitchen.
