The leading Dubai-based glass producer has added four kinds of high-performance products to its existing line-up. These will be revealed at a function today, 9th July at the Company's showroom. More than 100 industry specialists from the building materials trade, construction industry and architects and consultants are expected at the launch.
"There is a huge market for high-performance glass in the Gulf. Because of extremely high summer temperatures, energy conservation is becoming a major issue and will continue to become more pressing as a result of future increases in the cost of electricity. Our new range of products is not only highly efficient in controlling heat gain into the building and thus reducing energy consumption, but also has aesthetic qualities which add to the beauty and dramatic appearance of modern architectural designs," said Dowling.
The four products to be launched on Wednesday include Emi-T, a temperable high-performance glass; Emi-Lam, a laminated high performance architectural glass; EmiCool vinyl back mirror for wardrobe doors; and Hagen Venetian Blind Systems.
Emi-T can be heat treated (fully tempered or heat strengthened) after the coating process and is available in silver blue and neutral silver coating options. It will be sold in stock sheets.
Emi-Lam is a versatile laminated architectural safety glass formed by creating a sandwich of two sheets of glass with a tough fully transparent plastic inter-layer. It is highly effective in restricting heat and sound transmissions thus saving energy and reducing noise pollution.
EmiCool mirrors offer superb natural reflection, free from distortion. They enhance bedroom ambience and create a wonderful feeling of space. EmiCool mirrors are supplied with a vinyl film applied on the rear surface to prevent fall-out in the event of a severe impact and to ensure safety of the occupants.
Hagen Venetian Blind Systems comprise a Venetian blind built in between two panes of glass in a sealed insulated unit. It is thus protected against damage and dust and does not require any cleaning or maintenance. The system is ultra hygienic and is, therefore, suitable for use in hospitals, laboratories, clinics and office buildings.
