Industrial glass, of course, is a type of glass commonly used in doors and windows but with many other applications. Among the most common types of industrial glass are laminated, tempered, safety, and so-called “cut to size” or “cut to shape” custom glass. Here in the great state of Florida, with our risk of hurricanes and inclement weather, industrial glass is often the glass of choice. As the #1 industrial glass manufacturer, we receive many calls for it, from Miami to Jacksonville, Tampa to Orlando and everywhere in between.

Laminated glass, which is the most common type of so-called industrial 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.

Industrial Glass: Factoid
Industrial Glass in its most common format, “laminated glass,” is also known as hurricane glass and 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.
This type of industrial glass via the lamination process, 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.
