Commercial glass, of course, is a type of glass commonly used in doors and windows but with many other applications. The consumer might not know it, but there is a vibrant commercial glass industry behind the scenes of suppliers, manufacturers, buyers and other third parties who create and install commercial glass.
Here in the great state of Florida, with our risk of hurricanes and inclement weather, laminated glass is often the commercial glass of choice. As the #1 commercial glass manufacturer, we receive many calls for it, from Miami to Jacksonville, Tampa to Orlando and everywhere in between.

Our prices are second-to-none, and whether we’re “near you” or not is immaterial, as we ship and supply commercial glass throughout Florida.
Laminated glass (the most common type of commercial glass) is made by bonding two pieces of glass together with a middle core made of plastic that is commonly polyvinyl butyral. The middle plastic prevents the glass from breaking or separating when shattered and thus increases the safety effect.

Commercial Glass: Factoid
Laminated Glass (the most common type of commercial glass) is also known as hurricane glass and it was invented in 1903 inspired by a laboratory accident. A glass container was coated with a plastic cellulose nitrate and when dropped shattered but did not break into pieces. The french chemist, Benedictus, who discovered it filled a patent in 1909.
Laminated Glass, also known as hurricane impact resistant glass, consists of two sheets of glass with a protective inter-layer that when heated bonds together creating a strong glass able to withstand hurricane winds and burglary incidents.
