VyGuard Laminated Glass, by Vytex Windows, is available with Heritage Series, Casement Windows, and Signature Sliding Patio Doors. VyGuard, a revolution in laminated glass, helps keep your home safe and sound – and increases its value! VyGuard Laminated Glass uses two pieces of double-strength (DSB) glass bonded together by a durable plasticpolyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer to create the inner pane of the insulated glass unit (IGU), with a single piece of double-strength annealed glass as the exterior pane. The combination of these layers and superior bonding provides the ultimate protection against impact and sound. VyGuard absorbs sound and reduces sound transmission by as much as 30%.
The PVB interlayer absorbs the energy of a sudden impact and resists penetration, minimizing the risk of injuries and improving home security. Although the glass may break, the glass fragments remain firmly bonded to the interlayer. In the event of a severe storm, VyGuard helps protect your home from interior damage.
