ToughGlaze provides digitally printed façade units for John Lewis

Post Time:Jan 11,2018Classify:Industry NewsView:923

The UK city of Basingstoke now has a new landmark store for the John Lewis Partnership to house both the John Lewis and Waitrose brands, with façade glass supplied by ToughGlaze.



A new landmark store for the John Lewis Partnership to house both the John Lewis and Waitrose brands has been developed in partnership with Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council in the UK. The new store will deliver over 110,000 sq ft (net) of retail space for Waitrose and John Lewis at Home, and a new café, representing a significant boost to Basingstoke’s retail offer.


The project is the first phase of an extensive regeneration of the Basing View business park and will create a new gateway building. The sharply chiselled elevation has been shaped to screen the upper level car park and plant levels, whilst creating a building with significant urban presence within the town centre.


ToughGlaze was tasked with providing 1,000m² of digitally printed toughened glass with a pattern that mimicked cotton threads. Using a Diptech digital printer to 750 d.p.i., the company exceeded the customers’ expectations. The glass was then incorporated, by ToughGlaze’s sister company Crystal Units, into a 6mm Guardian S/N 70/41 + 6mm clear toughened, argon filled sealed units.


Established in 1993, ToughGlaze (UK) Ltd has grown over the years to become a leader in innovation for advanced glass products with a developed factory allowing customers the benefit of total confidence as all processes are all carried out under one roof. 


The company has recently achieved transition to ISO 9001.2015 accreditation and maintains all BS EN requirements with Kite Mark approval for all its products.
