GlassSMASH Challenge

For the very first time, Gulf Glass will host a new competition which allows visitors to take the GlassSMASH Challenge by attempting to break through an attack resistant, high-security glass brought to you by Vetrotech Saint Gobain: VETROGARD. Here's how you can join in the fun.



Once you have registered and collected your badge from the entrance, simply make your way to the GlassSMASH stand (E147), located in Sheikh Maktoum Hall, where the GlassSMASH challenge will take place three times a day as per the below schedule:

Day 1

Tuesday, 24th September 2019
11:30am, 2:30pm and 4:30pm

Day 2
Wednesday, 25th September 2019

Day 3

Thursday, 26th September 2019

Queue up in a line as fast as you can because contestants are selected on a first-come-first serve basis. There will be two teams of four contestants each. The first eight people to be in queue at the GlassSMASH stand at the scheduled competition timings will form two teams, who will compete with each other. 


(Please note: Teams will be divided by dmg events staff at the stand)


COMPETE TO WIN, here’s how:


Each contestant will first clad up in protective gear provided by our Safety Sponsors, Dubai Creative Group. Once ready, the teams will be presented with a clean slate of Vetrotech Saint-Gobain’s VETROGARD glass and will compete with each other to break through their attack-resistant, high-security glass using select heavy tools.


The team, collectively, will get 20-hits to try and create maximum impact with the aim to break right through this glass.


After 20 tries (each), a glass expert from Vetrotech Saint-Gobain will measure the impact created on the glass to declare a winner.


Along with a chance to win vouchers that can be used at over 150 outlets across UAE in select restaurants, malls, movie theaters etc., you are sure to walk away with many mementos from Vetrotech Saint-Gobain themselves.
