Overview

Overview

The GlassRite Tool is a free resource provided to commercial organisations and local authorities to allow them to cut costs and improve resource efficiency.

The tool was originally developed to detail bottles used for still wines, but now includes extended features which allow searching by bottles (for spirits, wines, beer, cider and perry) and bottle attributes (capacity, height, diameter, neck type, manufacturer, country of origin, bottle style, colour, closure and weight).

The lightweight bottles showcased on the GlassRite Tool are supplied by international glass manufacturers and cut-off weights for these bottles can be found in the “Cut-off weights” tab above.
