Here in the great state of Florida, with our risk of hurricanes and inclement weather, laminated glass is often the custom glass of choice.

Our prices are second-to-none on cut-to-size and cut-to-shape custom glass, and whether we’re “near you” or not is immaterial, as we ship and supply glass throughout Florida.
Laminated glass (the most common type of custom glass we manufacture) 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.

Custom Glass: Factoid
Laminated glass, also known as hurricane glass, is the most common type of custom 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.
