Custom Laminated Glass

Architectural Laminated Glass is a source of limitless inspiration for our project partners across many industries. JIT is a full-service glass fabricator with extensive knowledge of glazing techniques and the skill to use them inventively and cost-effectively to deliver your projects on time.

Laminated glass is fabricated by sandwiching sheet materials called interlayers between two or more lites or panes of glass, permanently bonding these under heat and pressure into a single construction. Proprietary processes and specialized equipment are used to create custom designs. The type of glass, thickness and color, and the visual characteristics of the interlayer materials all have an effect on light transmission, creating different degrees of opacity or translucency and a great range of visual effects. Laminated glass interlayers can be made of single elements or custom combinations, limited only by your imagination.

Materials for interlayers include:

  • Colors or tints created with PVB (polyvinyl butyral) Vanceva Color System
  • EVALAYER Laminating Film (Clear, Frosted, Superwhite, Black)
  • Textures
  • Earth elements
  • Fabrics, textiles
  • Specialty and hand-made papers like rice paper
  • Reflectives
  • Metallic materials, foils, meshes
  • Dichroic films and other materials with prismatic effects
  • High resolution graphics and digital images
  • Logos

Applications include:

  • Laminated architectural glass
  • Decorative glass panels
  • Cabinet inserts
  • Impact-resistant safety glass
  • Fire-rated glass
  • Manufactured industrial parts

Features of architectural laminated glass include:

  • Safety—the interlayer keeps the glass bonded even when broken
  • UV-, water- and chemical-resistant
  • Sanitary, antimicrobial surfaces
  • Noise suppression
  • Cost-effective solar energy control and heat insulation
  • Resistance to scratching, fading, and discoloration
  • ANSI-Impact Compliant
Edge finish options include:
  • Seamed
  • Waterjet cut
  • Flat Edge Grind
  • Flat Edge Polish

Architects, interior designers, art consultants, contractors, cabinet makers, project managers, sign contractors, environmental graphics specialists, and manufacturers have all significantly expanded their custom design range by partnering on glass projects with JIT. Merging JIT’s Architectural Laminated Glass technology and Waterjet Cutting capabilities creates opportunities to create more unique designs than clients may have thought possible.
