PowerPlate™ technology can eliminate the worry and liability associated with injuries from broken dasherboard shielding. PowerPlate™ is a specially designed coating applied to the outer surface of tempered glass panels. It not only makes the glass stronger under impact, but ultimately prevents a shattered pane of glass from falling apart. The shattered glass stays intact making clean up quick and easy.
