The safety benefits of using plastic glasses around the elderly or infirm are obvious.  However, when choosing plastic glasses, there are several important benefits to be had by investing in high-quality plastic glassware over cheap plastic glasses.

Avoid waste.  It is common practice in care homes to buy cheap plastic glasses and replace them when they crack or go cloudy from exposure to hot drinks or washing with hot water.  Posh Plastics plastic glasses are guaranteed not to crack or cloud for 3 years – even if drinks are microwaved in them or they are washed in industrial dishwashers.  We found that by investing in durable plastic glasses over cheap plastic glasses, a care home had the same annual costs over the first year and zero costs for the following years.  This led to tonnes of plastic being removed from their waste as well as large savings on plastic glassware purchases.

Plastic glasses are great for insulating the drink inside.  Our thick plastic glasses keep more of the heat or cold away from the fingers, reducing burns and the numbing of fingers from chilled glasses.  Cheaper glasses will not insulate as well as more substantial plastic glasses.

Our Plus and Classic ranges are very easy to hold.  The bowled base and finger ridge in the Classic tumblers creates a very comfortable and tactile product.  With the increased friction of plastic over glass and the lack of condensation on the outside of the glass make these glasses much easier to grip.  The Plus tumblers are wider at the top than the base, making them less likely to slip whilst holding them.

Dignity.  Many people in care or their own home find drinking from plastic glasses degrading.  At an emotional and difficult time, this is an unnecessary extra sign of changing times.  Posh Plastics glasses are just like glass glasses to drink from.  They have the same weight and clarity of glass and do not taste of plastic when you drink from them.  Many people refuse to believe that the glass they are drinking from is not actually made from glass.  There is nothing second rate about drinking from plastic glasses when they are Posh Plastics plastic glasses.

Using Posh Plastic glasses is a winner on every front – if it saves money, gives a more pleasant experience, is easier to use and improves the quality of life of the elderly or infirm, then why would you consider a cheap beaker that costs four times as much over it’s life, a better alternative?

Dishwasher Safe Plastic Glassware

Plastic glasses are made from a variety of different plastics.  The cost of item is based on the quantity of plastic used, the quality of the plastic and the length of the annealing process used to set the plastic rigid.

A glass may have the heavy feel of a normal high quality glass but, if it's made from acrylic or low grade polycarbonate, then any exposure to heat could fracture or cloud your plastic glasses.  Dishwashers, microwaves, exposure to direct sunlight and even washing-up water could ruin a glass that looks and feels great in the shop.

At Posh Plastics we only sell plastic glasses made from high quality polycarbonate.  All of our products are safe to use in the dishwasher* and to expose to heat.  Even our lighter weight products have been tested through 2000 dishwasher cycles.

The Thunder plastic glasses are designed to be made with more plastic, to give extra weight and a more realistic feel to those drinking from them.  Many people will drink from a Thunder glass and have no idea that the glass they have just used is made from plastic.

The annealing, or baking process, that the glasses go through, bakes the plastic to increase the durability.  As this represents the highest cost to the production process, many manufacturers shorten this stage.  Thunder glasses are considered the clearest, most durable plastic glasses available because of the length of this baking process and are therefore slightly more expensive.

Given that all polycarbonate glassware will last quite a long time, the cost difference over time makes Thunder a better value product than cheaper plastic glasses.

*All of our polycarbonate products are safe wash in industrial and domestic dishwashers, up to 140°F/60°C, in the top rack.  Products from RB Drinks are safe to wash on cycles with temperatures up to 265°F/130°C.  This would be safe to wash in top-end domestic dishwashers on higher-intensity cycles.  Check the temperature ranges of your cycles with the manufacturer to ensure that you cause no damage to your glassware.
