The world's leading forces in structural glass systems and laminate interlayers have joined together to create the ultimate in strength, safety, durability and appearance in laminated structural glass - the Pilkington Planar/Sentry Glas Plus system.

This unique collaboration between Pilkington and DuPont results in a robust system that enables architects to extend the barriers of glass design. The Sentry Glas Plus system consists of a laminated structural glass that is thin and light, whilst allowing for the creation of larger glass panels with a reduced number of support fixings, whilst still meeting demanding structural and safety requirements.

The combination of Pilkington OptiWhite glass within the Pilkington Planar/Sentry Glas Plus system results in improved light transmission and viewing clarity which both adds to the building's internal appearance and the experience of the visitors to the shopping centre.

One further innovation on this particular application is the use of the Pilkington Planar integral fitting. This innovative and fully tested method of fixing laminated panels to a backup structure without any exterior caps or washers - all fixings are concealed within the laminated glass.

Equating to the size of 20 football pitches, the extended shopping centre will boast 100 new apartments, 40 brand new shops, and eight flagship stores. Aside from shopping, The New Shires will be a new and vibrant meeting place right in the heart of the city centre.
