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.

Installers contacted TuffX and explained they needed glass that was suitable for balconies and completely safe for pupils and staff.

TuffX recommended that their 11.5mm clear Toughened Laminated Glass would be perfect for the job. They supplied the installers approximately 80m2 of the glass in various shapes.

This particular toughened safety glass was suggested as it is safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, the glass shatters into small particles and is held in place by an interlayer cast between two other layers of glass.

This would be ideal for a school as if broken, the glass can be replaced easily and will reduce the risk of injuries. Toughened Laminated glass does not shatter like annealed glass.

TuffX manufactures their toughened laminated and laminated heat strengthened glass in-house on state-of-the-art machinery to meet all current industry standards. They produce the glass up to a maximum size of 4000mm x 2200mm.

Head teacher of Rhyl High School reportedly said “We wanted it to be about learning on view, so there’s loads of glass, nothing’s hidden...You can’t walk through here without seeing through every classroom and through every area.”

As well as its specialist toughened glass expertise, the company is also renowned for its customer-oriented approach.

This is demonstrated in its nationwide delivery service with a standard turnaround time of four to five working days. Express service can also be requested on application.
