Market Street, Leeds

CT Glass provided a variety of different glasses for a range of uses throughout the development. Numerous shapes and sizes of 10, 12 and 19mm toughened glass were used for the shopfronts and balustrading.
In addition a variety of white glass effects were required for some features, which were created using different methods. A 10mm paint sprayed toughened glass was used for cladding to a central column and a 6mm toughened paint sprayed glass utilised for further cladding. Additional cladding benefited from a 9.5mm toughened laminate with a white PVB Interlayer, whereas an 11.52mm toughened laminate with a white PVB Interlayer was used to create a lightbox.
