"We were recently commissioned to re-glaze a steel lean-to on a listed building that posed a number of issues including: *The original wired glass no longer rated as safety glass and could pose a serious risk in the event of breakage. *The steel glazing bars weren’t uniform. *Handling risks *Breakage Having considered a variety of options, we found the answer with TBS - 6mm Lexan. Unlike glass, Lexan is lightweight, won’t shatter, won’t split & can be cut on site if required. Available in cut sizes, and clear or obscure finish. TBS delivered when they said they would, and all the sheets were cut accurately to the required dimensions, making installation very straightforward.   I would highly recommend TBS, and will definitely be using them for future projects."
