The company manufactures more than 22.000 meters of different architectural glass solutions.

Marrakech-Menara Airport is architecturally considered as one of the most beautiful in the world and its recent enlargement has only emphasized this idea.

The high-performance glass has played a crucial role in the project of the new terminal, not only for the aesthetic result of the work but also for the technical requirements for the construction of such a mega infrastructure.

TVITEC was ordered to supply the highly-efficient glass for the enlargement of the Moroccan airport through the company SGTM with very tight deadlines to match the opening date with a relevant international summit.

The transformer produced a total of more than 22.000 meters of different glass solutions for both the exterior facade and the interiors for handrails and elevators, as well as for the stunning dome located in the main access to the terminal.

The insulated glass dominating the project incorporates intelligent solar control coatings as Guardian SG HP Bronze 40/27 and Climaguard Premium combined with laminated, tempered and printed glass which contribute to the safety of the building, as well as to guarantee the acoustic insulation.

Of the nearly 5.000 pieces that make up the extraordinary glass wall of Marrakech airport enlargement, more than a thousand are treated with a very unique and exclusive print. The most part of them are located in the great dome and are also characterized by their huge triangular shape.

The project manager of Tvitec, David Abad, pointed out the great technological capacity of Tvitec to transform glass at both national and international level: "Otherwise it wouldn't have been possible to complete the project with the high quality and the deadlines required", he said.

"The large dimensions of the glass units forced to do a great effort in the field of logistics," said Bibiana Prieto, the project coordinator at Tvitec, in reference to the triangular pieces that in many cases exceeded the 2.5 meters high.
