Toughened Duralex Gigogne Glass.

 

Strong, durable and practical.

The word Gigogne is an old and little-used French adjective meaning 'nested' (or stackable), which perfectly describes the Gigogne tumblers.  First manufactured in 1946, these tumblers were popular with school children.  For its exceptional design, the Gigogne tumbler earned a permanent place at the 'Musee des arts decoratifs' in Paris, France.

Bring a little bit of France to your establishment with this Duralex Gigogne glass tumbler. Manufactured with shock resistant thermal glass, this tumbler is freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe.

During the manufacturing process, the glass is heated to around 700ºC before it is suddenly cooled by cold air ventilation. It is the same tempered glass used to make windscreens which, in the event of an impact or accident, shatter into thousands of non-cutting pieces. 

The process not only gives the finished product a perfect transparency and lasting clarity, it makes it practically unbreakable as well.  Duralex glassware is at least 2.5 times more shock and chip resistant than ordinary glassware, making it perfect for everyday use.  The tempering process also improves the glassware's thermal properties.  Duralex products can withstand thermal shock of 130oC, while ordinary glass breaks from thermal shock at about 40oC. 

Once described as 'the ultimate drinking vessel created by man', the famous Duralex glasses are just as popular now as when they were first manufactured.  Steeped in history and with a retro vibe the Duralex glasses create a nostalgia feel reminiscing of old school days.  Suitable for hot and cold drinks and extremely tough, the iconic Duralex glasses are great for schools, cafes, pubs, bars & restaurants.
