An Electrically Heated Laminated Window
A heated laminated window 10 is disclosed having two panes of glass 15, 16 and an embedded window heater 13 which is connected to an external source of electrical power by means of flat electrical conductors 20a, 20b. A plastic laminating interlayer 17 is interposed between and bonded to the two panes of glass 15, 16. The plastic laminating interlayer 17 having at least one angled slit 18, 30 through which a respective one of the electrical conductors 11, 20b extends and is folded over to form a compact corner. The interaction of the electrical conductor 11, 20b with the respective slit 18, 30 locates and retain the respective electrical conductor 11, 20a on the plastic laminating interlayer 17 during assembly and provides a water impermeable seal therebetween after bonding of the heated laminated window has taken place.
