The deep end

TuffX recently supplied 11.5mm of Clear Toughened Laminated glass to Oldham Leisure Centre for its swimming pool and spectator area.

When the leisure centre underwent a £15 million refurbishment, the contractors contacted TuffX to explain they needed a large amount of safety glass that would be good for balconies and walk ways within a pool area.

TuffX suggested that Clear Toughened Laminated glass would shatter into small particles if broken, which will be held in place by an interlayer.

“Our outstanding new swimming pool sits under a generous viewing balcony, which overlooks our 25m, county level, eight-lane pool, plus separate learner pool for beginner and family sessions,” a spokesperson for the leisure centre said.

TuffX toughened laminated glass can be produced up to a maximum size of 3,800mm x 1,800mm depending on the thickness of the glass.
