Glass in Banks

The Bank PKO BP is the largest bank in Poland and among the largest in the region, with over 1200 branches, an agency network of almost 2000 outlets and the country’s biggest ATM network of more than 2800 machines.    It is also one of the biggest employers in Poland.

For a bank of such stature, it was only natural that the choice of glass in banks also stood out distinctly.

Precisely for this reason, Saint-Gobain Glass was relied on to get the ideal glazing solution for the Bank PKO BP. Glass in banks needs to be elegant without going over the top, and extend the appropriate functional benefits. Bank PKO warranted the use of a double-glazed, comfort glass and this need was well-met by Saint-Gobain’s SGG Antelio.

SGG Antelio is a solar control glass that is highly reflective in nature. Even though its main function is solar control, after processing it may also be incorporated into a single or double-glazed unit for multifunctional glazing. As a glass in banks, SGG Antelio extends several advantages, like savings in air conditioning, natural lighting of internal areas, and increased architectural creativity using curved, enamelled or screen-printed SGG Antelio and uniform appearance between vision and non-vision areas. At the Bank PKO, SGG Antelio Silver variant was used.

For long, Bank PKO has endorsed the fulfillment of eco-friendly initiatives. The bank takes its corporate social responsibility with great earnestness, and has put several measures in place to adhere to this commitment. With the use of sustainable glass solutions from Saint-Gobain, it takes yet another step towards environmental responsibility.

Glass in banks makes a point in elegance that is understated. Providing all the right benefits with a quiet sophistication, SGG Antelio Silver from Saint-Gobain clearly lives up to its expectation of being the chosen one for the prestigious Bank PKO.
