For interiors:

AIS Décor Lacquered glass

With our lacquered glass range, you can make your interiors look innovative and fresh. This glass is manufactured by applying a special high-quality paint to one side of the glass.

This type of glass can be used in your kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms and offices as well for doors, walls, cabinets, etc.


AIS Securityglas

Another glass that can be used within the interiors of your home is the laminated glass. This glass is manufactured by adhering two or more sheets of glass together with a flexible PVB interlayer. The PVB interlayer filters the sun eliminating up to 99% of UV rays while allowing the important visible light to pass through. The bond between the glass and interlayer can absorb accidental human impact. In case if the glass breaks, the fragments adhere to the interlayer thus minimizing injuries to people. This glass also offers people with excellent sound insulation properties.

Tempered or toughened glass is a type of safety glass that is processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments. This process makes the glass 4 to 5 times stronger and increases its strength compared to normal glass. In times of a breakage, tempered glass breaks into small fragments that cause minimal damage to the people. As a result, it can be used for various interior and exterior applications with ease.
