Forestry Operator Cab Safety Glass
ArbourShield - Forestry Operator Cab Safety Glass
Our heavy machinery safety glass is specifically developed as the ultimate protection glass for use in forestry operator cabs, and other heavy machinery. ArbourShield® is a fully certified solution for where protection from impact and falling object risks are required.
Unparalleled strength and unobstructed visibility is delivered through a combination of reinforced laminated glass outer layers and high-grade poly-composite inner core. This protects the operator inside the cab from falling objects and other projectiles.
ArbourShield® forestry operator cab safety glass has been extensively impact tested and proven to be over 10x stronger and more impact resistant than standard laminated windscreens of the same thickness.
As this is a multi-layered poly-composite glass product offering superior protection, it may initially have slightly more visual haze as result of the protective layers being looked through, when compared to the traditional polycarbonate sheet. However as ArbourShield® has a hardened glass exterior, it does not scratch and deteriorate like traditional polycarbonate products, it remains consistently clear throughout its lifespan.
The amazing new ArbourShield® laminate uses the latest technology to allow maximum stretch and bounce without perforation, thus offering an unmatched strength and performance.
ArbourShield® high impact windscreens have been tested and certified for on road use throughout Australia and New Zealand, certified to AS/NZS 2080:2006 – Safety Glazing for Land Vehicles. Subjected to a series of rigorous tests, ArbourShield® has withstood clarity, distortion, luminous transmittance, ageing, impact, fracture and adhesion quality control tests to show its real value to users.
