Laminated glass identifier

EDTM Inc. The Glass-Chek Elite identifies laminated glass in a window and measures the thickness of the laminate inner-layer. The graphical display illustrates the window’s profile. The instrument also detects the presence and location of low-emissivity coatings, and can tell if the coating is a hard or soft coat, as well as the number of silver layers used to make the coating.
