Need a fast turn around on safety glass?  Need a little extra security against theft?  Laminated glass could be the glass you are looking for!  Laminated glass consists of two pieces of glass held together with a laminate inner layer.  When the glass is broken, instead of shattering into thousands of tiny pieces as tempered glass does, the glass is held in tact by the laminate in the middle, thus preventing entry in case of a break-in.  At St. Louis Glass Works, there is usually a 1-2 day lead time on standard 1/4″ clear laminated glass, where tempered safety glass could be as much as 5-7 business days.  For more information on all types of laminated glass including bullet resistant glass, click on the following link. http://www.oldcastlebe.com/architectural-glass/laminated
