Laminated glass balustrades with DuPont™ Butacite® PVB interlayer at Changi Airport, Singapore

Safety and acoustic control were two main drivers for the installation of laminated glass balustrades containing DuPont™ Butacite® at Changi International Airport (Singapore) last year.

Architects, Engineers and Planners RSP of Singapore worked with laminator Singapore Safety Glass (SSG) to replace all the tempered glass balustrades of Singapore's Changi International Airport's Terminal 2 with laminated safety glass balustrades using 0.76 mm (30 mil) Butacite® PVB during a major renovation of the terminal in 2005.RSP project architect Colin Chan said: "Laminated safety glass is now used extensively throughout Terminal 2 - not only for the new safety glass balustrades but throughout the façades, glass ceilings, glass partitions and shop fronts. As well as safety, acoustic control was a major driver in the upgrade. The laminated glass installations look particularly attractive at night when the airport is illuminated."

DuPont Asia Pacific Glass Laminating Solutions Architectural Director Phil Davies commented that Singapore is moving to replace vertical tempered glazing with laminated glass throughout the public housing sector, including balustrades and shower screens, and that the switch from tempered to laminated balustrades in Changi Airport's Terminal 2 could therefore be viewed as part of a growing replacement trend in that country.
