Drinking establishments be they bars, pubs, discotheques, taverns or poolside restaurants must meet specific needs to survive in a competitive marketplace: cost, resistance, practicality,… concern with general use that goes well beyond a glass’s design or its aesthetics. Arcoroc, Arc International’s food service division has been meeting and exceeding the glassware needs of the commercial food industry for over 50 years with innovative design and practical considerations: glassware designed with thought to the daily use and abuse of barware. In working with these professionals, Arcoroc has developed glasses made of extra-resistant glass that are shock resistant resulting in little breakage and budget savings. Glassware that is resistant to thermal variations of up to 135°C allowing glasses to move from salamandre to cold water, again without breakage. And glassware that is safe if it does break. Along the same lines as The Ultimate Pint Glass, Arcoroc’s tempered glassware breaks up into small, harmless pieces guaranteeing client safety and table service. The extensive line of stemware – Normandie, Princesa, Malea to name but a few – includes the classic red wine glass, champagne glasses, or wine goblets and drinkware for spirits; also in extra-resistant glass, or in sculptured or coloured glass with thin rims for optimal drinking conditions. Needless to add, these glassware lines are also microwave and dishwater safe. A separate line has been developed in response to restrictions on glassware in pool bars and restaurants. The resulting Outdoor Perfect Collection, in SAN plastic, has clean pure lines and the look and feel of the finest glass.
