'Emirates Glass focuses on high performance glass coatings ideally suited to extreme climates. Through our EmiCool range of products, we continuously strive to create the most cost-effective and environmentally adaptable product to suit the needs of the regional and international markets,' added Mr. Dowling.
Emirates Glass has also expanded its distribution network by appointing new agents in Iraq, Bangladesh, Jordan and Iran. In fact the company has already started delivering glass to these new areas. Besides these, the company is also delivering glass to projects in the UK and Singapore. They include the Bridge Water Place in Leeds, UK, (about 10,000 sq meters of EmiCool Sun NN-62 on Clear) and the Bio Medical Centre in Singapore (about 4,500 sq meters of EmiCool Sun NN-60 on Blue).
Emirates Glass' high-performance EmiCool, EmiCool Plus and EmiCool Sun glass types have a product code which acts as a shorthand description of the colour of the coating, the colour of the substrate glass and the nominal percentage of visible light transmittance. EmiCool's durable, transparent metallic coatings are applied directly to float glass substrates using Leybold's Magnetic Sputter Vacuum Deposit (MSVD) technology.
