specialist laminated glass for infrastructure in terminal building

Infrastructure

In today’s security conscious environment, Terminal buildings are being designed and specified to ensure both passengers and their associated parties are protected from terrorist activity and safe in the event of crowd surges.

Apart from window or roof glass, glass is also used to segregate building sections and to provide safe, stylish barriers and balustrades. The glass we supply for barriers provides the required performance demand for managing directional crowd movements.

As a direct result of our knowledge and long-standing experience of specialist laminated glass, we regularly assist customers and help with specifications and glazing options for buildings in this sector.
