The UK’s Glass Technology Service will feature on the BBC’s ‘Watchdog Test House’ series next week (11.45am on Thursday 27 March).

The episode will focus on toughened safety glass construction products used across architecture and glazing.

The focus will be on the rigorous safety and performance requirements that must be met before the product can be CE marked and made available on the European market.

Philip Marsh, Business Development Manager at GTS comments: “The programme makers contacted us to provide expert, independent insight into the relevant product standards, and to film the physical tests and assessments needed to meet stringent safety and performance requirements for glass.”

The Watchdog Test House programme shows the GTS product testing and development team demonstrating the impact resistance and safe breakage characteristics provided by toughened glass using their specialist pendulum soft body impact testing rig - with BBC cameras capturing footage at close to 100,000 frames per second.

GTS works across the glass supply industry both in the UK and internationally, providing analysis, consultancy, testing, quality assessment and research and development support across the glass, food and drink, architecture and construction, retail, medical, pharmaceutical, defence and biotech sectors.
