Safeglass (Europe) Limited was formed in 1997 to commercialise the award winning material, Safeglass®. Since then, we have expanded our product range to include other break glass materials and specialised glass and plastic.
Safeglass® is the world’s first material specifically designed for break glass use. It replaces real glass because it overcomes the obvious dangers associated with breaking real glass.
Safeglass was developped by our Managing Director. He used to work in the special effects industry where sugar glass is used for props. This is made from a resin by hand. The challenge was to find a way to mass produce it. Safeglass was born!
We have an enormous amount of expertise regarding our own patented material as well as using other materials for break glass use, such as plastics and toughened glass. We also make hammer boxes and enclosures and sundry parts.
Our journey over the many years has seen us move from a small office unit to larger accommodation which includes offices and workshop space. This has meant we have been able to expand our capabilities and we have invested heaviliy in the machinery we need.
Our main customers come from the Rail and Bus Industries. Clients include Bombardier, Siemens and Stadler. In the UK we supply most of the Train Operating Companies such as Scotrail, South West Trains and Virgin.
Our product range falls into the category of “highly specialised” and we are able to manufacture small batch runs.
