    Can a sponsor give me an estimate on the price of a Tank with the following dimensions.

    Front pane preferably Starfire

    2700 x 550 x 700mm (w x h x d)

    This is a future project but would like to work out the budget :)

    I got an informal quote the other day, and the builders rate was based on square meters of glass. I seem to remember a rate of R1200 /sqm for normal 19mm glass, and R3300/sqm for 19mm starphire. That's not the glass price, but the price for a fully built tank. I guess yours works out at 5.6 sqm plus bracing.

    Dallas, those numbers look wierd. Where did you get them from? They seem to bear no resemblance to Warr's numbers?

    henk is correct the height is the major concerninng factor.. i estimate around R3500 - R4000 for glass only at the given rate labour is another story... current glass pricing in east london is ridiculous..
