Emirates Glass Wins Major Contracts To Supply 75,000 Square Metres Of High-Spec Glass Products

Emirates Glass LLC (EGL), one of the leading processors of architectural flat glass in the Middle East and a subsidiary of Glass LLC, which is wholly owned by Dubai Investments (DI), has recently won orders totaling over 75,000 square metres within the first two months of this year.

Among many notable on-going Gulf projects , Emirates Glass has been contracted to supply 40,000 square metres of its 'SoLite Neutral' 52/29 clear high performance glass for ' Index Tower ', an 80-storey mixed-use residential and retail tower complex being developed by Union Properties PJSC at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

Foster and Partners of London produced the architectural concept for Index Tower for which the aluminium cladding sub-contractor is Multiforms LLC. The tower will have 25 levels of office space and 520 apartments and penthouses over 50 levels on a site, which has allowed the architects to orientate the building for maximum exposure to daylight but with least solar heat-gain. The selection of SoLite Neutral 52/29 high performance glass will allow the Architects to realize a very good combination of high internal daylight-factors whilst managing to optimize the cooling load for air-conditioning. Furthermore, the pleasing 'neutral-grey' appearance of SoLite Neutral 52/29 will blend very well with the external masonry and concrete finishes.

Mr. Ziad Yazbeck, General Manager, Emirates Glass said: 'SoLite Neutral is a new product from Emirates Glass, has been well-received by the market for its high light transmission and low shading coefficient aspects. Supplies of SoLite Neutral to the Index Tower project are expected to begin by this month-end.'
