Flower & Food market benefit from new PlasGard patent gazed roof and polycarbonate
The States of Jersey we keen to refurbish the glazed roof at Central Market, St Helier, but had to work closely with traders to ensure the minimum of disruption. Stallholders were also concerned about solar gain during hot summers, but at the same time were wary of the usual tinted glass options that may have cast colour onto their different food stuffs and flowers, where their natural beauty influenced customers buying decisions. Nobody wants to buy a Halibut fillet with a green hue! Opal Polycarbonate provided solar shading, cutting down glare, but at the same time did not dis-colour natural daylight. PlasGard’s robust design and continuous screw on capping satisfied engineers requirements for a robust system capable of withstanding the high wind loads at this exposed island located in the English Channel.
