Notes: Foamed PVC has a self-extinguishing property. If ignited in air, it will die by itself. Subsequently, Foamed PVC complies with the most demanding fire resistance standards as indicated by these representative results.

The above tables cannot be directly compared due to the different test methods utilised, unless where indicated *. Relative density is stated for 3mm standard products.

"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."

"We couldn’t ask for more from TBS Poly who are our new distributors in Cheshunt. Its important we give them every support in the first few months to help make it a success for them "
"If I place an order for the next day, TBS have not let me down yet. That counts for a lot when a customer has an urgent requirement – it helps our “can do” attitude"
Philip Harben
"From past experience I know that when I email tbs I will get a quick response to my query and it is resolved quickly. That makes me very Happy!"
"Friendly, knowledgeable and approachable with a guarantee of quality."
