Permanent vandal-proof glazing solutions for travel centres, bus terminals and station platforms. Both the low weight and the hard surface of Hammerglass makes it an excellent choice for roofs, walls, elevators etc. The nano-technology surface treatment makes it easy to remove graffiti and also provides 99.96% UV protection, which means that the material will not discolour or undergo any other change in optical quality over time. The estimated service life of Hammerglass is more than 40 years.

Flexible vandal-proof glass solutions
Hammerglass offers unbreakable glazing solutions for roofs, walls, station platforms, elevators and balustrades. Clear or coloured Hammerglass sheets up to 6 metres in length and 4-20 mm thick allow customers and architects considerable freedom in project design and construction. Where larger sections are to be glazed, individual panels can be joined together.
Fixing may be carried out with the aid of clamping profiles, Hammerglass Fixpoints or project-specific fixing solutions. With Fixpoints a gap between wall and glazing sheet may also be created.
A further advantage is that the glazing material can be cut after the basic supporting structure is in place, in which case each section for glazing and each fixing component is measured individually with 3D laser and then transferred to a CAD drawing for production.
Wall sections and roof constructions
Crystal clear wall sections and roof constructions involving Hammerglass sheets mounted onto existing structures or project-specific profiles, for example an L-profile with clamping profiles in the glass joints to provide a water-tight seal. Each section for glazing is measured individually, after which the glass sheets are then cut.

Glass for staircases and elevators
Entire external elevator towers with heights up to more than 10 metres, or just a stair balustrade? We have unbreakable glass solutions for both stairs, escalators and elevator connections - either in existing systems or in completely new steel structures. Mounting the handrails directly in the Hammerglass panels works very well.
Measurements are taken once the steel structure is in place, in order to provide an optimum fit for the Hammerglass panels. The glazing panels are secured throughout using the Hammerglass Fixpoint system to ensure optimum strength.
Glazed footbridges and waiting halls
Entire construction projects are often carried out with the railway tracks still in full use, meaning that it must be possible to build most of the structures right next to the track area and then lift them into place. Our fitters insert the screens while the steel skeleton is still on the ground, after which the entire structure is lifted. This type of lifting is virtually impossible with ordinary glass as movements in the structure would cause glass breakage.
All the panels have been measured and produced individually. Even if the steel construction does not match the drawing 100%, the installation of the screens goes smoothly.
Undamaged and clean weather protection
Hammerglass modular, unbreakable bus shelters, replacement of glass in existing station platform shelters, or glazing in a completely new structure. Hammerglass panels are flexible and can be appropriately shaped to fit into curved profiles.
Safe pedestrian subways and cycle tunnels
Illuminated pedestrian subways do not only offer a safer environment and enhanced security, they are also visually appealing. An opal, colour-impregnated or printed Hammerglass panel with LED-illumination provides an attractive focal point of light in the night darkness.
When it comes to graffiti, marker tags or other soiling, most known detergents and chemicals can be used to clean up without the Hammerglass panels being damaged.
