In recent months TuffX Processed glass have supplied 11.5mm of Clear Toughened Laminated glass to Oldham Leisure Centre for their swimming pool and spectator area. The leisure centre was due a renovation and having brought in an investment of over £15 million, it was the perfect time to completely change everything about the centre, including the swimming area.
The contractors contacted TuffX and explained that they needed a large amount of safety glass that would be good for balconies and walk ways within a pool area. They needed to ensure that their customer’s safety was not at risk and wanted the area to look visually aesthetic. TuffX suggested that Clear Toughened Laminated glass would be ideal for the job. It looks appealing and bespoke; it is safe and if ever encounters a breakage the glass will shatter into small particles that will be held into place by a Cast in place interlayer. The installers agreed and went ahead with the job.
Oldham Leisure centre are seemingly pleased with the work saying “Our outstanding new swimming pool sits under a generous viewing balcony, which overlooks our 25 metre, county level, 8 lane pool, plus separate learner pool for beginner and family sessions”
TuffX toughened laminated glass is a popular product produced up to a maximum size of 3800mm x 1800mm depending on the thickness of the glass. They manufacture all glass in-house on state of the art machinery that meets all current industry standards.
