Pilkington Gin Apples and Tomatoes

24 Feb 2022
This month saw us break into a new industry… Horticulture  and Botanicals! Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean gin, apples and tomatoes distilled and grown by Pilkington, but it does mean glass manufactured to help others to do so.

Pilkington Botanical™ is our new range of glass perfect for commercial greenhouses. For more information about our new range, click here.

This year Cheltenham Festival falls on 15th-18th March. If you’ve bought your ticket and you’re all set to attend this event, keep an eye out for our glass which was chosen for The Princess Royal Stand pictured above. Laminated glass was specified with a high performance low-e coated glass to ensure comfort and safety from the full height glazing. For more information about this project, click here.

International Year of Glass 2022

On Thursday 10th and Friday 11th February the United Nations hosted the opening ceremony for the International Year of Glass 2022. This featured a selection of speakers presenting a range of different topics around glass. If you missed this event, but would like to browse the material, you can watch it all on the United Nations Web TV website: 


I personally only managed to watch one speaker who was James Carpenter, an architect and artist who uses glass to manipulate and present natural light in the most extraordinary ways. He goes into detail about his project 'Sky Reflector-Net' which utilises the sun, sky and clouds to create a natural light feel in underground New York and it's well worth the listen.
