Our heavy machinery glass is specifically developed as the ultimate safety and protection glass for use in forestry harvester equipment, mining vehicles and other heavy machinery. ArbourShield is a fully certified solution for where protection from impact risks is required.

Unparalleled strength and unobstructed visibility is delivered through a combination of laminated glass exterior and high-grade abrasion resistant polycarbonate. This protects the operator inside the cab from chain shot, falling objects and other projectiles.

ArbourShield heavy machinery glass has been extensively impact tested and proven to be over 10x stronger and more impact resistant than standard laminated windscreens of the same thickness.
