Printed glass can be laminated to one or more other glass panels for increased strength, safety or security. GTS can laminate the glass with clear, coloured or structural laminate to AS/NZS 2208 Grade A Safety Glass Standards.

This makes the product ideal for applications requiring stronger glass to meet stringent safety parameters, such as overhead glazing, awnings, balustrades, railings, stairs, elevators and partitions.

Patterns were also supplied by Shibori textiles. Please visit their site for more information on their patterns and products.
