Polycarbonate glasses come in many shapes and sizes. What’s good for one home might not be good for another. The most common types found are:
2. Plastic beer glasses – More suited to bars and clubs. These generally come in both middy and pint sizes.
3. Plastic champagne glasses – Perfect for use in the family home, on boats or in bars and clubs. The most elegant looking of the three types of polycarbonate glasses.
4. Plastic tumblers – Polycarbonate tumblers come in all shapes and sizes. From your traditional double old fashion tumbler, to your high ball tumbler; there’s numerous plastic tumblers to choose from. Being made from polycarbonate, they won’t break or shatter. This makes them ideal for bars and clubs where breakages of traditional glasses are common.
There’s also polycarbonate shot glasses, martini glasses, cocktail glasses and more. All of these are unbreakable, shatterproof, highly affordable and a great alternative to real glass.
Polycarbonate is an exceptionally strong plastic polymer. What makes it so strong is the way it is constructed. As such, it can withstand extreme amounts of force and will not break, shatter, chip or splinter. Polycarbonate, therefore, is ideal for a number of applications; including polycarbonate drinkware.
Polycarbonate wine glasses are often referred to in the industry as unbreakable wine glasses. If you have ever visited a bar, club, pub or home with wine glasses made from polycarbonate you will have noticed there are never any breakages. If they are accidentally knocked from a table or someone’s hand, they won’t break (although you will lose the contents of the glass!). As such, many bar owners have been reverting to polycarbonate wine glasses as a means to save money on reordering wine glasses. If they don’t break, they don’t need replacing.
Polycarbonate wine glasses have been thoroughly tested by safety professionals to ensure they are suitable for use in such venues. Their strength is quite amazing, with some tests been conducted where a truck has run over the glasses. Whilst the glasses may temporarily move out of shape, they will immediately spring back in to their existing shape and no permanent damage will have occurred. If they can be run over by a truck, they can certainly be dropped from hand height!
Polycarbonate wine glasses – the future of unbreakable drinkware is here.
Polycarbonate wine glasses aren’t new – they’ve been around for a number of years now. So why are they only now becoming popular in the hospitality industry? Well, for starters, there is a growing trend amongst young people to accept that plastic glasses have a real place in clubs and pubs. With the ever increasing trend of glassing attacks, patrons like to feel safe amongst these licensed venues. And what better way to curb unnecessary violence than by limiting their exposure to real wine glasses, beer glasses and other forms of glass.
Secondly, the cost of plastic wine glasses and other forms of polycarbonate glasses has dramatically decreased in the last few years. With quality polycarbonate suppliers popping up all over Australia, there is no real reason for a pub or club to not switch to plastic.
Thirdly, by buying plastic glasses, a pub or club has to turn over their glasses far less often. Less breakages equals less replacements. And this means a better overall profit margin! So there it is, the benefits are clear when it comes to the decision to switch to plastic polycarbonate glasses. Make the right decision and switch to plastic glasses today.
