Lightweight vs. Heavyweight Glass Stillage

There are two main types of glass stillages available on the market; lightweight and heavyweight. Lightweight stillages are made from aluminium, which makes them much lighter than their steel counterparts. This is beneficial as it means they can be moved and stored more easily. They are also less expensive to manufacture, making them a more cost-effective option. However, steel stillages are much more durable and hard-wearing, meaning they are better suited for heavy-duty applications.
