Pilkington OptiView™ Protect

Pilkington OptiView™ Protect - overview

Pilkington OptiView™ Protect is a laminated glass with anti-reflective coatings on surfaces #1 and #4 (both outer surfaces of the laminated glass), which reduces interior and exterior visible light reflectance to under 2%. As a consequence, views from both inside and outside are clear, unobscured and virtually reflection-free.

Pilkington OptiView™ Protect

Pilkington OptiView™ Protect offers all the traditional benefits of laminated glass, such as improved safety, enhanced security, durability and acoustic properties. Furthermore, it provides protection from UV radiation (UVA and UVB) by blocking over 99% of UV transmittance, helping to reduce fading of the contents and interiors of a building.

Available glass thicknesses

6,8 mm; 8,8 mm and 12,8 mm (laminated glass)

Available stock sizes

6000 mm × 3210 mm; 2550 mm × 3210 mm

Benefits

Safety

Pilkington OptiView™ Protect is a laminated safety glass that performs under impact. Ordinary glass shatters into large pieces when impacted, while the laminated panes of Pilkington OptiView™ Protect resist penetration and are shatter-resistant. Even though the glass may break, the glass fragments will remain firmly bonded to the interlayer, minimizing the risk of injury.

Security

Pilkington OptiView™ Protect can help protect against break-ins and theft. Standard glass can be easily broken, allowing burglars easy access. The interlayers provide a safeguard against intrusion by remaining intact even when glass is broken. Pilkington OptiView™ Protect can be bulletproof and even protect against bomb blasts by using certain glazing combinations.

Pilkington OptiView™ Protect can be used in place of metal bars in applications such as banks, prisons and convenient stores requiring high security.

Audio performance

Pilkington OptiView™ Protect provides an excellent barrier to noise. The laminated panes provide insulation against audio disturbances by dampening the sound.

UV Control

Its anti-reflective properties allow it to absorb UV wavelengths and reduce damage and fading caused by UV radiation.

Durability

Pilkington OptiView™ Protect is durable and maintain its strength and is easy to clean like ordinary glass.
