Breaking news-BBC investigating toughened flat glass with GTS

Glass experts at independent research and design specialist Glass Technology Services Ltd (GTS) are to take a starring role in a new BBC TV series.

The product testing and glass development teams at GTS will be featured in a new BBC series scheduled to air later this year, which examines product safety and testing.The BBC production team visited GTS in order to learn about toughened flat glass as well as the standards and performance to which it must be tested.

“Our scientists and engineers are more used to looking through the microscope lens than they are to having the cameras focus on them,” said Philip Marsh, Business Development Manager at GTS.

“But it was fascinating for us to see the resulting slow-motion footage, which really captures the tremendous benefits of toughened glass and the awe of the production team when they witnessed what this amazing material is capable of.”

The BBC film crew interviewed Dr Nick Kirk, GTS Technical Director as well as Dave Dalton, Chief Executive Officer of British Glass about the tests, the history, development and manufacture of toughened glass, performance standards as well as new developments and innovations in the glass industry.

GTS works across the glass supply industry both in the UK and internationally, providing analysis, consultancy, testing and research and development support across the glass, food and drink, architecture and construction, retail, medical, pharmaceutical, defence and biotech sectors.
