Glazing Europe’s Tallest Tower

From www.glassonweb.com - Wed, 21/09/2016 - 09:21
Glazing Europe’s tallest tower included glazing the façade with two skins, formed of double-glazing units incorporating three different glass components.

Saint-Gobain’s COOL-LITE and PLANITHERM were assembled by Glassolutions’ Eckelt Glas site (Austria) for the building’s façades and to provide its occupants with maximum year-round comfort. The SGG COOL-LITE® SKN 076 II glass combines solar control, high light transmission with a neutral appearance.

The solar control, heat reflective glass, SGG COOL-LITE ST Bright Silver offers extreme transparency and an aesthetic, neutral reflection.

The low-e PLANITHERM ONE II glass panes on SGG DIAMANT deliver the market’s best energy-efficiency performance, allowing maximum light penetration and keeping the interiors warm.

Lakhta Center has made a conscious effort to embrace a number of innovative energy-saving technologies in its design, significant among which is the glazing solution from Saint-Gobain.
