We were recently looking for UV laminated glass for our conservation
workshop, and found Pilkington, the worldwide manufacturer of all
types of glass.  They manufacture a range which combines laminated
UV filtering with high impact-resistant qualities.  Such glass is at
least available here in Australia, and also the UK.   Pilkington
North America should also carry such a range.
