polycarbonate glasses for outdoor bars

Summer is upon us, and with it comes a surge in outdoor events – weddings, festivals, pool parties, BBQs – the list goes on! 

As an event organiser or bar operator, you want to create a memorable experience for your guests. But standard glassware can pose a significant challenge at outdoor events. Broken glass not only creates a safety hazard but also detracts from the overall aesthetic and can be a nightmare to clean up.


Introducing the game-changer - polycarbonate glassware

This is where polycarbonate glassware steps in. These innovative glasses offer a superior alternative to traditional glass, especially for outdoor events. Made from a virtually unbreakable and shatterproof plastic, polycarbonate glassware eliminates the worry of broken glass, creating a safer environment for both guests and staff.

Benefits of polycarbonate glassware

  • Unbreakable Durability: Say goodbye to shattered glass! Polycarbonate is incredibly strong and can withstand drops, bumps, and even falls from significant heights. This minimises the risk of injuries and ensures a smooth-running event.
  • Reusable and Eco-Friendly: Unlike disposable plastic cups, polycarbonate glasses are reusable, significantly reducing waste. This is a major win for the environment, as it minimises plastic pollution and demonstrates your commitment to sustainability – a value that many customers appreciate.
  • Crystal-Clear Clarity: Polycarbonate offers exceptional clarity, closely resembling traditional glass. Your guests can enjoy their drinks in all their glory, without sacrificing aesthetics for practicality.
  • Lightweight and Stackable: Polycarbonate glasses are significantly lighter than traditional glassware, making them easier to transport and handle. They also stack efficiently, saving valuable storage space.
  • Dishwasher Safe: Cleaning up after an event is a breeze with polycarbonate glasses. Simply toss them in the dishwasher for a quick and easy clean.

The perfect choice for outdoor events

Here's why polycarbonate glasses are the ideal solution for your outdoor bar service:

Poolside Parties: Relax and enjoy the party without the worry of shattered glass around the pool.

Festival Fun: Polycarbonate glasses can handle the hustle and bustle of a crowded festival environment.

Sophisticated Soirees: They offer a stylish and elegant touch, perfect for outdoor weddings or upscale events.

Barbecues and Backyard Gatherings: Enjoy the carefree atmosphere of a backyard get-together without worrying about broken glass on the lawn.
