Architect's and Engineer's Tools
With glazing and interlayers playing such a huge roll in contemporary architectural projects, we have created a suite of resources to help architects and construction engineers make the right choices for their applications.
On this page Kuraray's Advanced Interlayer Business provides a glass strength calculator, technical manuals featuring laminated safety glass in a variety of applications and training resources that you can use to expand your knowledge about the deployment of laminated safety glass; and how the right choice of interlayer can have a huge impact on both functional design and high-quality aesthetic appearance.
We also let experts have their say – through interviews with architects and engineers who have used Trosifol® and SentryGlas® products – where they share their experiences.
The easy-to-use Calculator is designed to help designers and architects accurately model a variety of glass-mounting solutions in combination with glass types, interlayer materials and external factors such as loads, load duration and temperatures.
Our SoundLab for calculating acoustic performance of monolithic, double and triple glazed units - For performing structural analysis for glass please use our GlassGlobal tool according DIN 18008 and ASTM E.1300 Standard. Also available in app stores.
Kuraray's Advanced Interlayer Business offers architects and construction engineers training sessions that are registered as part of the development programs of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) and the Royal Institute for British Architects (RIBA).
