Focus On Role Of Glass In Architecture
Sedak (Gersthofen, Germany) is determined to exhibit to the world the key role that glass can play in architecture. Stepping up its efforts towards that goal, sedak will present a façade construction with a supporting glass fin at ‘China Glass 2017’ (24th – 27th May 2017, Hall E1/200) in Beijing.
Assuming leadership in the field of innovations for oversized glass and special solutions, sedak has developed considerable production know-how. The detail of the glass façade serves as an example of that: Even the supporting construction is transparent. The filigree connection of the glass fin and the glass units via toggles is technologically pioneering. Thanks to the particularly small titanium inserts, maximum transparency and the highest level of static safety can be combined. During production, sedak laminates the inserts precisely in between the laminate’s layers which makes installation on site easier – and demonstrates sedak’s exceptional lamination capabilities.
“China Glass” is an annual event that attracts up to 30,000 international visitors. It focuses on innovations in the fields of special glass, architecture, solar glass, glass production, and glass processing. At the German Pavilion, about 30 companies will present their products and technologies.
