BackPlate represents a new way of mounting glass without having to clamp it or drill holes. Mounting is made possible by flat metal surfaces that protrude from the glass. The result is a stress relieved laminate consisting of glass and metal. BackPlate is not only astonishing from an optical perspective, it also offers extremely high load-bearing traits. As a PVB (Polyvinyl
Butyral Foil) laminate, it conforms with all of the regulatory requirements for linear stored and point held glasses of indoor using. This means it can also be used in break resistant glass applications.
