The invention relates to a laminated glazing comprising first and second plies of glazing material, a carrier film arranged between the first and second plies of glazing material carrying an electrically conductive coating, a busbar arranged in contact with the electrically conductive coating. An edge of the carrier film is spaced inwardly from an edge of the glazing. The busbar and the carrier film are arranged to define an anchor portion suitable for anchoring the carrier film, the anchor portion comprising a region of the carrier film extending outwardly from an edge of the busbar. The anchor portion anchors the film to avoid the formation of wrinkles in the carrier film. Avoidance of wrinkles results in more uniform heating and elimination of hotspots.
