Palm Tower in Dubai to have 12 Acres of Solar Control Glass
The Palm Tower, Dubai – the 52-storey, 240-metre tall hotel and residential building will be clad entirely in glass. The architects have chosen to install 50,000 square metres of Pilkington Suncool™ One 30/21 solar control glass to provide stunning vistas to the guests and residents in comfortable surroundings.
The glass to be used in The Palm Tower, Dubai features a state-of-the-art multi-layer coating that incorporates a microscopically thin layer of silver to help reduce heat transmission to just 21 per cent, while maintaining a neutral colour balance in the light passing through, maximising the views.
Pilkington Suncool™ One 30/21 was originally developed by Pilkington United Kingdom Limited, part of the NSG Group, for Intraco UAE, which has used the glass on a number of projects in the past. The hotel will provide comfortable climate for users. It will significantly reduce the need for air conditioning, reducing costs and emissions.
