The choice between laminated glass and tempered glass for glass railings depends on the specific application and the desired level of safety.

Which One Is Better For Glass Railing?

Untitled

Tempered glass is generally the preferred choice for glass railings in residential applications. It is strong, durable, and shatterproof, meaning that it will break into small, harmless pieces if it is struck. This makes it less likely to cause serious injury in the event of a fall. Tempered glass is also relatively inexpensive, making it a cost-effective option for residential applications.

Laminated glass is typically used for glass railings in commercial applications, such as high-traffic areas or areas where there is a higher risk of vandalism or intentional damage. It is not as shatterproof as tempered glass, but it does provide protection from flying glass shards in the event of breakage. Laminated glass is also more heat-resistant than tempered glass, making it a better choice for applications in areas with extreme temperatures.

In general, tempered glass is a good choice for residential applications where shatter resistance is important and the cost is a concern. Laminated glass is a good choice for commercial applications where there is a higher risk of vandalism or intentional damage and the need for heat resistance is a factor.

The Cost Of Laminated Glass Vs Tempered Glass

Laminated glass is generally more expensive than tempered glass for glass railings. This is because laminated glass is made with more layers of glass and a PVB film, which makes it more difficult to manufacture. Additionally, laminated glass is more resistant to impact, which makes it a more premium option.

Ultimately, the best type of glass for your glass railing will depend on your specific needs and preferences. Consider the factors listed above and consult with a professional to make the best decision for your project.
