Experts from Glass Technology Services are to appear in a BBC TV series investigating toughened glass.

The programme will examine product safety and testing, and is scheduled to air later this year. The BBC production team visited GTS in order to learn about toughened flat glass, as well as the standards and performance to which it must be tested.

Philip Marsh, Business Development Manager at GTS, said “it was fascinating for us to see the resulting slow-motion footage, which really captures the tremendous benefits of toughened glass and the awe of the production team when they witnessed what this amazing material is capable of.”

The BBC film crew interviewed Dr Nick Kirk, GTS Technical Director, as well as Dave Dalton, Chief Executive Officer of British Glass. They discussed the tests, the history, development and manufacture of toughened glass, performance standards, as well as new developments and innovations in the glass industry.
