FortPlus SentryGlas strong PVB laminated glass
HansenGlass use SentryGlas® by Dupont Glass Laminating Solutions as an integral part of the Hansen FortPlus system. SentryGlas® outperforms normal laminated glass in terms of strength, safety, durability and appearance.
Normal laminated safety glass consists of two or more sheets of glass bonded together by one or more layers of PVB, which is then sealed under heat and pressure. The interlayer is highly resistant and elastic, giving the glass robust qualities.
The Hansen FortPlus SentryGlas range provide the protective properties of standard PVB:-
Safety: in the event of glass breakage, all glass fragments remain firmly attached to the interlayer
Strength: glass is able to withstand large loads, and is ideal for roofing applications
Lower Weight: enhanced strength, means that lighter glazing structures can be built
Integrity: glass can be used in glazing that is required to withstand impacts from material propelled at high velocity
Durability: glass is extremely durable and resistant to clouding
Solar control: coated low-e glass can be used for improved energy efficiency
Versatility: glass can flat or curved, annealed, toughened, heat-strengthened, wired, patterned, tinted or painted.
Five times stronger and up to 100 times stiffer than conventional laminating materials, DuPont™ SentryGlas® interlayers help create glass that protects against bigger storms, harder impacts and heavier loads.
The glass also offers long-term durability even when edges are exposed to weather. Even open edges of glass are less susceptible to moisture intrusion, and remain free from clouding even after years of service.
Resulting laminates handle higher structural loads than PVB, making Hansen FortPlus SentryGlas® an excellent choice for balustrades and minimally framed or point-supported facades.
