Below we give details of a few recent hospital projects.
Two hospitals in Bulgaria: Saint Ivan Rilsky and Pirogov
Saint Pierre Clinic Unit 900
Located in the city of Stara Zagora, the new Saint Ivan Rilsky hospital features 376 m² of Lacobel painted AntiBacterial glass (beige). The Pirogov hospital in Sofia has around 450 m² in various colours (blue, green, beige and white). Both hospitals have the Safe* version, which is mainly used as a wall covering in operating rooms and maternity wards. At the Pirogov hospital, AB glass is also used in other types of applications: a painted LacobelAB version for furniture in certain areas (cupboards, drawers), with the transparent PlanibelAB version used in doors between operating rooms.
Saint-Pierre hospital in Ottignies (Belgium) and Saint-Georges clinic in Nice (France)
Saint Ivan Rilski Clinic
The Saint-Pierre hospital in Ottignies (Belgium) is currently installing pastel blue LacobelAB glass in high-traffic areas (waiting rooms, consultation rooms, corridors, etc.). The Safe version is used as a wall covering, specifically near the sinks. The same pastel blue was installed at the Saint-Georges clinic in Nice (France) on the walls of an operating room specially designed for hand surgery.
AntiBacterial glass from AGC Glass Europe is a major innovation in glass, containing silver ions that destroy 99.9% of bacteria that come into contact with it. It also prevents the proliferation of fungi. This remarkable performance makes the glass ideal for applications where hygiene is critical.

Safe: Safety film applied to the back of the glass during the manufacturing process. If the glass is broken, the shards remain stuck to the film.
