We use only high-quality float glass and PVB films from the best Russian and European manufacturers to produce laminated glass. Company successfully applies modern science and engineering achievements in its activity and uses high-tech equipment of well-known manufacturers as well.
7 gravity bending furnaces were built and commissioned, 5 autoclaves for product lamination were modernized. Departments of glass block building and gluing of tinted and safety films were extended and equipped with climate systems. There are two lines of glass chemical hardening in the plant. It enables to achieve minimum glass thickness of every safety level.
In 2005 new Italian glass processing equipment was activated and that makes it possible to exceed many Russian bulletproof glass manufactures in the field of quality and entry the European level of bullet resistant glazing production.
