Currently under construction the uniquely designed tower will contain 81 levels of residential and serviced apartments. Due for completion in 2014, it will be the largest residential tower in Brisbane, Australia. EnduroShield was chosen to protect the 20,800 m² (223,900 ft²) of glass facade during the construction process against staining and etching from exposure to cement slurry, dirt and grime. Having experienced problems in the past and needing to replace damaged glass, a solution was required for this project.
The application of EnduroShield is underway in the glass curtain wall factory after first receiving training, consultation and implementation of a quality assurance procedure. Having been certified, the factory is authorised to provide the EnduroShield 10 Year Warranty.
Once installation begins onsite, EnduroShield will protect against the harsh conditions during construction such as splatter and run off from concrete and cement which if allowed to remain on the glass, can lead to etching and pitting from the lime reacting with the glass, necessitating the costly replacement of the glass.
EnduroShield is the smart choice for exterior glass surfaces providing a permanent*, ultra-thin, transparent coating that completely adheres to the glass surface. The coating provides a reduction of both the frequency and the time spent cleaning. Developed with cutting edge nanotechnology, the coating is applied by many of the world´s leading glass companies and is an official partner to Lisec Corporation, the world´s largest manufacturer of high-tech production lines for the glass industry. *Independently tested and certified for durability to simulate a lifetime of 10 years on interior and exterior use by TÜV Rheinland, Germany.
