Six-figure investment

Cornwall Glass has made a six-figure investment in a new Tema EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) laminated glass line.

Installed at the glass processor and IGU specialist’s site in Highbridge, Somerset, it supports Cornwall Glass in bringing increased agility to laminate glass supply, which includes the capacity to process individual sheets of 2,500 x 3,600mm.

Simon said: “The fact that we can process laminate glass here, in-house, gives us far greater flexibility in the service we can offer to our customers. We’ve been asked more and more frequently for laminate and in processing it here, we can significantly reduce our lead times but also introduce greater flexibility to our product offer.”

The Tema LPB2536 line gives Cornwall Glass Highbridge, the capacity to manufacture a wide range of laminate products including glass for balustrading, canopies, staircases and walk-on floors and ceilings, in addition to laminated IGUs.

The company’s growth has come from a number of different areas including balustrading, which is being used in growing volumes in commercial settings but almost just as significantly – domestically.
