DREAM City is a comprehensive area designed for an integrated urban development. A world class infrastructure facility that opened its doors to a green future with a Smart Grid system that includes, amongst other things, renewable energy resources and a solide waste management based on a reduce, recycle, reuse and recover materials concept.
The main entrance of DREAM City is a huge futuristic and modular infrastructure, where glass is the main protagonist and helped to create natural connection both internal and external environment. A link enhanced by STRATO® Extra Chiaro EVA film implementation, mainly used in the laminating safety glass industry applications, known for its aesthetics and high-performing characteristics.
The building is made of both 170 sqm of STRATO® Extra Chiaro EVA film double bended laminated glass and 700 sqm of STRATO® Extra Chiaro EVA film flat laminated glass.
An engineering project, a combination of two different modular laminated glasses, perfectly matched on natural wooden templates. A stunning architectonical construction, a combination of strong expertise and need to create the perfect balance both natural elegance and safety.
The glazing project was headed by Rangkala Glass Design, a renowned Company based in Surat-Gujarat, who usually offers to its clients special combinations of material and art. Rangkala Glass Design is known for its high-quality cutting-edge glass products, processed with selected raw materials. Quality, being their utmost priority, is maintained at all times, through various procedures conducted by a team of quality controllers.
Rangkala Glass Design selected STRATO® EVA Extra Chiaro film to guarantee to the main entrance of DREAM City a combination of highly uniform strength, safety, perfect transparency and unobstructed view.
The phase prior to the installation of STRATO® Extra Chiaro EVA film laminated glasses concerned the glass lamination process. Rangkala Glass Design Company, heading the glazing project, used a TK Lamijet-04 oven in order to obtain high-quality laminated glasses.
TK Lamijet-04 250-450 is a Pro TK Lamijet oven version, with 4 independent working surfaces and forced cooling technology, which combines shorter processing times in relation to high production volumes. The ideal partner for exstensive projects such as DREAM City one.
During lamination and bending process with TK Lamijet-04 kiln, reflective glass coating didn’t fed up. The glass anisotropic hold its behavoiur. The result was a high-quality lot reflecting the installer’s expectations and successfully assembled in DREAM City.
