Around 1,200 metres square of Pilkington Profilit™ wired has been used for the main pedestrian entrances of three Santiago subway stations.

The stations of Manquehue, Los Dominicos and Hernando de Magallanes each serve 52,000 passengers every day and architects Burmeister were concerned to ensure safety and security.With units 3 metres long, any glass breakage would be a serious hazard so wired glass was chosen to minimise the danger.
From the design aspect, the profile glass - manufactured in Germany - gives a light and airy feel to the station whilst its translucent finish also provides some privacy to the passengers passing through.
