The article presents results of laboratory tests of point- -fixed laminated glass samples with local reinforcement in the form of a steel woven mesh. A total of 16, reference and reinforced samples, were tested. It was found that the reinforcement has a positive effect on the post-breakage capacity of the laminated glass. Local reinforcement in the glass increases the post-breakage strength by 51, 117 and 166%for samples with a reinforcement diameter of 75, 110 and 150 mm, respectively.
