AB-AR, post-breakage structural interlayer developed and designed by EVALAM, has been chosen as the solution to laminate the balcony railings in the exclusive apartments of the Sky Tower in Cyprus.

The Sky Tower is located in the historic city of Limassol on the southern coast of Cyprus. Located in a privileged area in the eastern part of the city, with a gross constructed area of approximately 30,000 square meters spread over 23 floors, this exclusive residential condominium.

The design is evident, a slim tower emerging from the landscape, but firmly anchored in the environment. The architectural expression of the tower is achieved with a series of linear elements that, like the roots of a tree, gently break the ground and finally rise towards the sky emphasizing the verticality of the structure.

The verticality of the tower is further articulated by profiles of the slightly changing terraces on each floor. The results in a gently undulating façade profile that gives the tower a unique organic language and makes it different from any other structure on the island.

Sky Tower rises more than 100 m high and has a capacity for a total of 83 exclusive apartments. The tower has been designed to ensure that each apartment enjoys stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea, the city of Limassol and its picturesque mountainous suburbs. Their residents will enjoy incredible panoramic views and the exceptional atmosphere of comfort and relaxation.

The 83 apartments have the best materials, and the latest trends in architecture and planning in the world, among them is AB-AR, the option chosen as a structural interlayer for the railings of the apartments. AB-AR is a post-break structural interlayer designed thinking of applications that require extra security in public spaces or with high linear load. Provides passive post-break security when tempered glass is used.

AB-AR is the Interlayer with the highest mechanical resistance performances on the market ahead of iono-plastics; especially in states of post-fracture stability above 45ºC, even though both are tempered, the composition does not lose its rigidity. AB-AR is a technical solution that offers 50% less weight than glass-only compositions, obtaining the same resistance that offers a security plus, making it the ideal solution for structures of all kinds in glazed facades, structural windbreaks, stairs, ceilings or railings, as well as in anti-vandalism security situations.
