Since the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the story of NorthGlass and the Olympics has never stopped, from "Bird's Nest", "Water Cube" to the "ice ribbon".
One could almost say: "sedak has never produced a more complex glass", because with this laminate with attached insulating glass islands sedak created a real masterpiece.
Guardian SunGuard® Solar Silver 20 was selected for the glass roof due to its high level of solar protection, particularly in applications where heavy sun would make excessive solar heat gain an issue.
Interlayers make glazing safer and better
Shining The "Honored Board”, Northglass Ranks the Top Three in "Top 500 Preferred Brands of China's Real Estate Development Enterprises"
Guardian SunGuard® SN 70/35 coated solar control glass was selected for the glazed façade of the building.
For the glazed façade, the architect required high light transmission, solar protection, a neutral appearance and a good level of light reflection.
The buildings` facades are glazed with Guardian SunGuard® SNX 60, a triple silver coated solar control glass that offers a highly desirable, consistent, neutral, transparent appearance – regardless of the viewing angle.
Thanks in part to its unique solar control design, rainwater catchment system and cool green roof, the building has earned Green Globes Certification with a Two Green Globes rating.
