Marine Glass is specifically designed to meet the rigorous demands of exterior marine applications, the DuraShield Marine portfolio is fully certified and is set apart from the competition by its high-performance inter-layer. The laminate technology overcomes delamination typically displayed in marine windows and windshields, while delivering exceptional strength and clarity.
The VisionInk digital ceramic ink glass printer is the most advanced and versatile machine available for printed glass. Combined with our glass curving capabilities it is ideal for both external and internal architectural and transportation glass applications, together with stunning Point of Sale (POS) displays.
Security glass is specifically designed to provide additional safety for personnel and protect critical areas in buildings, safe houses, detention centres, prisons and marine vessels. Even when broken, the tough inner-core of poly-composite will lock the exterior glass layers to enable greater attack resistance. Ideal for doors and windows that maintain the appearance of normal glass.
StormShield uses specially formulated ultra-high grade laminate in the manufacturing process, engineered so the glass can expand and contract up to five times its normal rate before breaking providing protection from wind born debris. The proprietary process allows us to manufacture glass that has better performance ratings from lighter, thinner compositions versus our competitors.
Glasshape remain at the forefront of innovating glass solutions for transportation, with particular emphasis on rail and heavy machinery where the demands on the glass are especially rigorous. Combining strength with clarity and our signature curving capabilities produces transport glazing solutions that have the safety and comfort of both operators and passengers at their core.
