TuffX glass in futuristic project
TuffX has supplied 89 panels – a total of 145m2 – of 21.5mm EVA toughened and laminated safety glass for a substantial high-end glass stairway in a business premises in the South East of England.
The glass was chosen for both its quality aesthetic as well as to provide enhanced safety, with the Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) interlayer ensuring robust bonding for greater impact resistance and structural strength.
Complementing the building’s glass atrium roof and light glossed marble effect flooring underfoot, the glass stairways are said to have created a ‘dramatic, futuristic vision’, with light ‘bouncing around the space’ even on the most overcast days.
To complete the project in time, a fast turnaround was required on the finished glass panels – which included drilled holes for secure side fixing and CNC polish finish on the edges and dubbed corner.
“We’re delighted to say this is another tight project that we delivered on time and in full to a satisfied customer,” said Paul Higgins, TuffX’s commercial director.
“This is a fantastic example of where only quality glass will do, and the stunning finished result is great to see.
“Furthermore, our 10-year guarantee against discolouration and delamination means our customers can be assured their glass will look as good as it does on day one for years to come.”
