TUFFX: WHEN SPECIALIST GLASS SOLUTIONS ARE NEEDED FAST
Toughened glass specialist TuffX recently supplied its quality safety glass, in a variety of bespoke sizes, towards the construction of a new apartment block in High Wycombe.
TuffX’s customer had been briefed to design and install an internal glass and stainless steel balustrade for the communal staircase of the building, but as is often the case, time was tight. The handover date was due and top-end safety glass was needed with a quick lead-time to complete the project.
An elegant building requires an equally elegant safety glass solution – which is exactly what toughened glass specialists TuffX recently supplied to a residential complex in Scotland.
The client required fifteen Juliet balconies to provide both unobstructed views and unrivalled safety from multiple storeys of windows. TuffX supplied 17.5mm toughened clear glass in varying sizes, with a perfectly aligned finish and brilliant polished edge, to fulfil the brief.
Situated in the centre of Brixton, Lambeth, and standing fourteen storeys high is Hambrook House; a brand new mixed-use development comprising of 94 residential units, plus ground and roof level community spaces. Part of an extensive redevelopment of Lambeth Town Hall, the building enjoys views over nearby St Matthews Garden to the east, enhanced further by a series of laminated glass balconies provided by industry specialist TuffX.
Tuff X have recently supplied 35.5mm toughened laminate glass to Edinburgh Zoo. The Zoo decided to create a Tiger Exhibit in which spectators would be able to walk through the Tigers den via a glass tunnel.
This would give them a ‘live’ experience to be able to view the Tigers in their home and natural surroundings.
Swarovski is renowned the world over for its glittering crystal jewellery. With such a powerful reputation to uphold, it is important that every element of its brand stands up to scrutiny. So when a new shop was planned for The Mall in Blackburn, every element of its design was meticulously considered.
A number of products from the TuffX portfolio have been incorporated into one of London’s most recently constructed landmarks. The Shard stands 309.6 metres high and is the tallest building in the European Union.
Specialist toughened safety glass manufacturer TuffX have most recently given an old High School in Rhyl a revamp. A more modern vibe was given to the schools floors by creating glass balconies to act as hall ways for the staff and students. The school no longer needs to be closed off when walking through the main entrance so looks and feels more contemporary and welcoming.
