Vetrotech Saint-Gobain, SageGlass and Saint-Gobain Glass Exprover took this opportunity to introduce and show their wide range of products in the Middle East.
Hosting over 160 exhibitors from 13 countries, the region’s largest platform dedicated to window, door and facade products attracted more than 7,000 visitors in its second year, an impressive 33% rise over its introductory year in 2016.
Alongside the exhibition, the Windows, Doors & Facades Event 2017 featured the “Middle East Facades Summit”, a high-level conference that attracted hundreds of delegates hosting a series of keynotes presentations on industry topics, such as Fire Safety and Building Design.
Vetrotech Saint-Gobain, SageGlass, and Saint-Gobain Glass Exprover shared a booth to display various products and launched some of their latest innovations into the Middle East market. The stand attracted numerous visitors from the local UAE market as well as from the neighbouring countries including Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, East Africa and India.
Vetrotech Saint-Gobain displayed several multifunctional fire-resistant and high-protection solutions including Contraflam, Keralite, and Vetrogard.
This year’s main attraction was the large installation of Contraflam Structure Corner, a butt-joint glass solution without vertical frame profiles and dimensions of up to 3900 mm in height. The patented solution proves that there is no compromise when it comes to fire protection, large panel sizes, and aesthetics.
"For the first time in the Middle East, the multifunctional capabilities of our fire rated glass were showcased with ceramic fritting, better privacy, and improved acoustic insulation make-ups. This was well received by the visitors, especially architects and consultants who always have challenges blending protection with aesthetics. The samples showcased included Contraflam Lite with tinted glass, Contraflam Lite Stadip, Contraflam Lite with Patterned Glass as well as Contraflam Lite with a one-way mirror effect." - Anoop Sreekumar Specification Manager Middle East
SageGlass successfully launched its new structural glazing solution SageGlass VARIO and attracted many visitors and journalists to the booth.
The innovative solution enables dynamic glazing to be installed in curtain walls with no outside aluminium transom or cover caps, providing a uniform and aesthetically pleasing appearance which suits the demanding requirements of architects and designers.
After three interesting days, Windows Doors & Facades Event 2017 wrapped up on a strong note. Vetrotech Saint-Gobain is already looking forward to the third event, which will take place from 23 - 25 September 2018.
