We’re often asked by customers which plastic tumblers we’d recommend for pints and halves; if a strong plastic tumbler is required our recommendation is always for the Katerglass range of disposable glasses.
There are a huge range of plastic pint and half pint glasses available in the UK, most of these will be of the ‘flexi’ style vacuum / thermoformed variety. These are great multipurpose items and have the advantage of a very low unit price, however the cheaper thermoformed construction does result in a glass that’s thinner and can have an inconsistent wall thickness.
Katerglass tumblers are the only injection moulded CE marked polypropylene tumbler around and offer unparalleled strength. They’re a heavier weight item, the injection moulding process also results in a glass that has a uniform wall thickness all over.
As these are a premium disposable product they also feature a rolled rim for drinking comfort, this means no sharp edges. We actually find that customers often end up washing out these glasses and reusing them due to their strength.
There are a number of reasons why you might require a strong plastic pint / half pint glass. If you’re serving glass for example, a stronger glass means no spillages as the glass will not flex when held. We’ve also found that there can be cost advantages too, despite the glasses being more expensive. If a customer picks up a thinner glass it’s quite common practice to take 2 glasses instead of 1, thereby doubling the cost per drink!
