The bridge features 51 individual sections of 13.5mm toughened glass which were laminated using vibrant coloured Vanceva interlayers.

High performance, coloured, laminated glass from Romag forms the epicentre of the new memorial space at Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare, an established charity and sanctuary well known for its dedication to the care of animals.

The bridge features 51 individual sections of 13.5mm toughened glass which were laminated using vibrant coloured Vanceva interlayers. Each section of glass has been laminated, precision cut to size, polished and drilled by Romag using its state-of-the-art computer-controlled waterjet cutting tables, drills, grinders and CNC polishers at its HQ in Consett, County Durham. 

Designed by Northumberland based Landscape Interpretation Designer, Steve Pardue at Differentia and built by Robin Watson Signs, the Rainbow Bridge takes inspiration from Norse Folklore where it was believed the Rainbow Bridge (or the Bifröst) connected the Earth to Asgard - the realm of the Gods.

Steve Pardue of Differentia Design said: “The Rainbow Bridge is a space of remembrance and quiet reflection which is also intended to be used as a place for creative writing, poetry and art.

He continued: From the inception of the concept Romag helped us with all aspects of using their products and we are delighted with the finish of the glass and were impressed with the technical knowledge and skill from the staff at Romag.

The finished bridge is a spectacular vision of light and colour that cascades coloured light on the wood and surrounding water. A wonderful space for visitors to remember their animal friends.”

Paul Cruddace, Romag’s sales and marketing director, concluded: “The Rainbow Bridge is a very special project that we are delighted to be involved in. The glass panels reflect our technical expertise and skills in architectural glass, which we have honed for over 70 years. It is a pleasure to see our glass used in such a striking, innovative and harmonious design.”

Romag has a strong reputation around the globe for manufacturing high quality specialist glass products in a range of shapes and sizes to meet individual client aspirations and design requirements.

Romag glass is stringently tested to ensure manufacturing processes meet and exceeds industry regulations and expectations.
