The park required large glass viewing panels with a high clarity to allow uninterrupted views of the tigers in their enclosure. The panels also needed to be able to withstand substantial impact. Romag’s Physical Security Glass
The glass had to be laminated to a certain thickness to provide the level of protection specified. In traditional float glass this is problematic as the iron content in gives glass a green hue. As float glass gets thicker, the glass appears more green.
To overcome this, a special, low-iron glass that increases light transmission and reduces the green tint significantly was used, resulting in pure, very clear glass. By using this particular glass, Romag was able to deliver a high-performance product that exceeded the specifying brief. This project is an excellent example of Romag’s work to meet a client’s specialist requirements within the security market.
What they say
“Romag provided excellent advice and service when we were selecting the appropriate glass for the project and delivered what was promised quickly and on time. This gave us confidence to again select Romag’s high quality laminated glass for installation in our new ‘Bengal Gardens’ attraction, which is another unique new research enclosure currently under construction".
