Protection from the elements for Encirc 360


Producing more than 4 billion glass containers for leading global brands, Encirc 360 are the market leader in the worked glass industry in the UK.

Established in Northern Ireland, the company have been in operation since 1998 and are well known for their forward-thinking and sustainable business practices.

Encirc contacted Lauralu after discovering us through our website. They needed a solution for a loading area on site that lacked adequate protection from the elements, leaving their high-quality glass stock exposed and at risk of damage and soiling. To prevent this, they required the installation of a robust cover that could provide protection from the weather. Encirc also were struggling to establish planning consent, which could potentially cause issues and significant delays without support from their building supplier.
Safer area for delicate stock
More space for traffic to flow
Minimum impact on cashflow


Any solution needed to best suit the area’s traffic plan. We accomplished this by creating a small canopy complete with walls. Simple, yet elegant! The new canopy above the loading area provided Encirc with a more efficient work space and a safe area for their stock during delivery, all while allowing traffic to flow freely through the area.
