Glass-Safe: the new tray is designed to prevent breakages
Balancing empty glasses hoping they won’t drop and break could be a thing of the past, according to the designer of a new tray.

Chris Holloway says that with ‘Glass-Safe’ the prospect of a tray slipping from a staff member’s wet hands and creating mayhem will no longer be a worry.

Made from the same canvas material as a sports bag, and strengthened inside with the use of tough polystyrene, Glass-Safe is specially designed for safely carrying various sized beer and wine glasses, as well as bottles.

The unit has a strap that fits over the head and is moulded to fit the body. It comes with an adjustable waist belt, leaving the hands of the bar staff member free.

The ‘tray’ concept features expandable inserts, specifically engineered to secure glasses and bottles whilst in transit.

According to Holloway, there is no risk of any glass or bottle falling, thereby safeguarding the safety of both customers and staff.

“I have spent a lot of time observing the precarious manner in which glasses and bottles are transported on trays and other crude forms, from place to place, often in very crowded bars, and felt that there must be a better way of doing it,” said Holloway.

Holloway also designed CardSafe, a toughened plastic unit that holds up to 10 credit cards in a locked drawer. The customer is given the key to the drawer so they know their card is safe.
