Using the SentryGlas® interlayer which is five times stronger and up to 100 times stiffer than conventional laminating materials. With this kind of strength, SentryGlas® interlayers help create stronger laminated glass that protects against storms, impacts and powerful blasts.

Besides its strength, SentryGlas® retains its outstanding clarity, even after years of service, to provide superior, lasting beauty for laminated glass whatever the application – from floors and stairs to balcony rails and minimally supported glass canopies.

SentryGlas® interlayers are used in laminated glass to help architects and glazed building system manufacturers meet Australia’s need for security, energy efficiency, safety and maintenance ease. It helps builders, architects and designers do more with less, creating innovative new spaces, all whilst providing greater protection for building occupants.

Do more with less by using extra-strong custom laminated glass

Glass technology has come a long way. The extra strength and security offered in today’s top-quality custom laminated glass allows for applications previously only dreamed of — from minimally supported roofs and glass facades to fully frameless glass balustrades. ToughView uses a special interlayer called SentryGlas® that is five times stronger and up to 100 times stiffer than conventional laminating materials like PVB, allowing you to use it in structural applications.

Inside or outside — glass balustrades for stairs or balconies

As the capabilities of glass have evolved, home design has adapted to take advantage of it. Handrails disappeared in favour of completely transparent glass balustrades, and cladding disappeared in favour of glass facades. ToughView glass can be used in a variety of applications, both internal and external. Frameless glass balustrades for balconies mean there is nothing obstructing that garden, sea, or mountain view while using ToughView glass balustrades for stairs or for mezzanines means you can always keep an eye on what is going on below. It’s important that your client’s premium railings do not tarnish, and ToughView maintains perfect clarity even after years in the harsh Australian sunlight — so your clients can always enjoy that stunning view.

Structural glass for floors and walkways

Using SentryGlas® as an interlayer for ToughView means your glass is strong enough to be used in structural applications without additional support or bracing. So you can use ToughView not just as glass balustrades for stairs, but also as the steps of the stairs themselves for a unique and eye-catching design. In public or commercial works ToughView can be used for glass flooring, walkways and even pedestrian bridges. From skylights to other roofing applications, ToughView can also be used to maximise the amount of natural light that reaches a room or atrium.

Security glass that won’t let you down

As well as offering structural rigidity, ToughView can be used for extra security. Wide, sweeping glass facades are a great way to entice shoppers, however, this can also draw the wrong kind of attention. By choosing a security glass like ToughView you can enjoy both safety and high visibility without the need for unsightly shutters. Offering exceptional strength against impacts while still offering all the benefits of natural light and near-perfect aesthetics, ToughView is a popular choice for both shop fronts, government buildings and even aquariums and zoo enclosures!

Custom cut laminated glass

Just like all custom laminated glass Tough Glass products, ToughView cannot be cut or drilled after the tempering process is complete. That means glass balustrades for balconies, stairs or elsewhere need to be cut to size from the beginning. With quick  turnaround times on custom glass orders, Tough Glass can provide custom laminated glass to a wide variety of sizes and specifications.

    E.Taylor from Refined Exteriors
  • May I just say that your staff at Tough Glass are providing us with excellent service. We have never in all the years experienced such a service. I rang on Wednesday to request a couple of urgent panels for which we collected this morning. That truly is amazing!!

    Everybody should use Tough Glass and I would never use anyone else regardless of pricing like some do. I don’t think we have ever received a bad piece of glass from Tough Glass either. It’s a credit to you and your staff.
