Landmark project

TuffX, has supplied 235 panels of precision made, 10mm clear toughened glass for use as internal balustrades on a prestigious development located in central London.

Located on Lower Thames Street near Tower Bridge, Landmark Place is a development of 165 suites, and one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses.

TuffX’s managing director Graham Price said: “Large, premium developments such as Landmark Place always present a challenge, and in this case the quality and precision of finish of the glass was key for our client, with all the panels requiring polished edges and drilled holes.

“In total, we produced 235 panels, in 10mm, high optical quality toughened glass which represented a total glass area of 142m2, a significant and highly visible part of the building. As an additional challenge, all the panels were ordered in a variety of shapes and sizes, which for some suppliers – when you consider the high number of bespoke panels required – could have caused problems and therefore delays.

“However, through consistent investment in our factory we work with the latest processing equipment, including three CNC machines and an advanced Glaston FC500 glass toughener, giving us complete control over our entire manufacturing process.

“It is this flexibility, coupled with experience, that enables TuffX to produce greater volumes of unique shapes and sizes of glass, sometimes with the most intricate of surface designs, always finished to the highest standards.”
