Glass for walkways

Architectural laminated safety glass from specialist manufacturer Romag has been specified for three aerial walkways at Liverpool University.

More than 60 square metres of clear glass has been supplied to provide safety barriers on the three walkways that connect the two main sections of the university’s new £65m Materials Innovation Factory (MIF) in Oxford Street in the city. Opening in autumn 2016, the MIF will be home to multi-disciplinary research.

Installation was by Warrington-based structural steelwork and architectural metalwork fabricators Shawton Engineering. After delivery the glass was installed in the bridge off site and delivered to the client fully glazed, to eliminate the need of temporary handrail after the installation of the bridges.

Paul Hiscock, contracts manager at Shawton, said: “The high quality, high performance architectural glass will provide an impressive addition to the installation while significantly enhancing the impressive interior design and public safety.”
