We’ve got several different options available when it comes to our disposable champagne flutes, we’re commonly asked about the differences between these and which would be most suitable. These are summarised below:
This is the most common champagne flute we stock, the most popular choice for commercial usage as the glass contains a 100ml and 125ml fill line and is CE stamped. These are an injection moulded single piece flute; perfect for high volume use in terms of cost per unit but also much stronger than the more common 2-piece glasses.
These are smaller flutes with a maximum capacity of 130ml, great for serving the common 125ml for private events or home use. These are not CE stamped but are made from slightly thicker plastic than the 170ml glasses.
A uniquely and unconventionally style glass, this is a high quality item made from thick injection moulded crystal polystyrene. You often see this glass used for a variety of purposes, either for champagne, wine, cocktails or sometimes even desserts. The capacity is larger than other flutes, lined at 100ml, 200ml with a maximum capacity of 256ml.
This is a smaller flute in a classic 50’s coupe style, the glass is 150ml but this is a measure right to the brim. Realistically you’d want to serve a maximum of 100ml in this glass to remain manageable. You will also see this style of glass used to create a tower of champagne flutes at formal functions and soirees. This is a 2 piece glass and requires assembly.
One of our most popular ranges of catering supplies has always been our Plastic Champagne Flutes. These are available in 5 main styles to suit a variety of different occasions but fit into 2 distinct categories; these are reusable and disposable glasses.
The disposable glasses are available as either a traditional ‘tulip’ shaped flute with either a 100ml or 184ml maximum capacity, or a Champagne ‘saucer’ which mimics a vintage-style champagne glass. These are all made from hi-clarity crystal styrene, completely translucent for use at formal occasions and events. Unlike some cheap champagne flutes you might find elsewhere, our ‘tulip’ flutes are single-piece flutes that do not require any additional construction.
For occasions where a stronger flute is required we can supply 2 types of reusable glasses, these are either the Elite (Polycarbonate) or Excel (SAN) items. These plastic flutes look and feel very much like their glassware counterparts, although in the case of the Elite Polycarbonate range they have the advantage of being near unbreakable. This extra durability makes them ideal for functions where the items will be indefinitely reused, or bars where the risk of broken glass is a serious hazard.
Where a strong flute is required, but the price of polycarbonate glasses cannot be justified we offer the SAN reusable items. These have the same look and feel of the polycarbonate items, but are not quite as durable – although still very strong, it is possible to break these glasses. SAN items are tested in excess of 250 glass washer cycles whereas polycarbonate flutes are tested to 500 cycles.
