Incredible coating technologies allow glass to breath new life into your animal habitats and maximize the visibility of the animals.

Anti-Reflective Coatings

Ensure that animals do not react to their reflection and limit aggression due to the reflection from large glass surfaces. Avialable up to 130" x 300."


DFI - Reduced Cleaning

Using nano coating technology AGNORA reduces cleaning frequency by up to 90%, a sizeable reduction in maintenance hours.

What are the certifications used in Zoo Glass?

Zoo and Aquarium glass falls in line with the current generation of impact-rated glass.  AGNORA use EN 356 ratings to test the durability of glass makeups and the overall maximum energy a glass lite can endure.  These ratings are third-party verified, with certificates available upon request. Originally designed to ensure the safety of storefronts and luxury residences, the same applies for the safety of occupants and animals within the zoo. 

Is there a size limitation?

Just your imagination!  In fact, as the largest glass fabricators in North America, you can fully certify zoo and aquarium glazing up to 130″ x 300.” That’s a lot of coverage! 

How thick and heavy is Zoo Glass?

Here are the size and thickness examples for a variety of ratings. 

  • P5A – 14.3mm | 30 kg/m²  or 0.55″ | 6.14 lbs/ft²
  • P6B – 15mm | 30 kg/m²  or 0.60″ | 6.14 lbs/ft²
  • P8B – 22.6mm | 45 kg/m²  or 0.90″ | 9.22 lbs/ft²

Is there scratch resistant glazing?

In fact, the Diamon-Fusion coating used to minimize cleaning cycles also builds a tough outer layer, perfect to stop scratches from beaks, claws, and other sharp animal parts. 

Can this glass be used in any frame system?

Yes, Zoo Glass and Aquarium Glazing can be used in any framing system that will accept the width. 

Do the interlayers affect common silicones and sealants?

No, common DOW and similar sealants bond with interlayers used at AGNORA.
