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.
Customers from the Zoo reportedly were having difficulty seeing the Tigers complaining to the Zoo staff as they were hardly ever visible. With the Tigers being one of the main attractions, it would usually be a disappointing experience for customers who have come to visit the Tigers if they don’t want to come out of their habitat. The Zoo has named the attraction ‘Tiger Tracks’.
TuffX supplied Approx. 70m2 of 35.5mm toughened laminated glass which is made up of 19mm Toughened Clear laminated to 15mm Toughened Clear. The customer requested a glass of high strength resistance with optimum safety feature, as they had to provide the zoo’s safety first and foremost, as well as the animals safety.
