Opera House

Project details:

Opera House features oversized double glazed units with the largest pane size of 2.7m x 3.9m, 43.52mm thickness low iron glass, heat strengthened using both sides coated antireflective coating.


Project description:

Opera House is a centre of culture and arts located near the tallest building Burj Khalifa with a view of the Dubai Fountain. 

Opera House Dubai is the pilot project with the newest double sided antireflective coating in architectural glazing. In order to launch this project, we have worked closely with Guardian on developing double glazed units combination, which should strictly meet specification requirements of Werner Sobek. The maximum light transmission of high selective solar control glass with antireflective coating helped to reduce light reflection in order not to distort a view from inside Opera House.

10 000 sq.m. of extremely complicated, shaped glasses of highest quality were delivered precisely on time and made it possible to happen for a Grand Opening of Opera House on 31st of August, 2016.
