Big Glass at Big Five

sedak at „The Big 5“ in Dubai

At the biggest construction event in the Middle East, sedak (Germany) shows what is possible with glass in the 21st century. The Big 5 takes place from 26th to 29th November 2017 at Dubai World Trade Center. With two exhibits, sedak presents its new IGU product line “sedak isomax” with a Ug-value up to 0.23 W/m²K, and an example of an all-glass-façade construction at the German Pavilion (booth SS3 D67). Glass samples will demonstrate the high-level production competence of the German glass manufacturer. Additionally, visitors can catch up on sedak’s latest announcement to produce “the world’s biggest glass” in up to 3.51m x 20m by 2018.

As an innovation leader for large formats and special solutions, sedak has been developing high production know-how and therefore has established itself as full supplier for glass up to 16.5m. The list of references is spectacular and grows continually. Current projects are for example, UNO in Geneva, the Apple headquarters in Cupertino, and the House of European History in Brussels. Since 2007, the Bavarian manufacturer has fabricated oversize glass highly automatically and has constantly invested in its own R&D. In 2017, sedak has set a new milestone with a second tempering furnace that processes oversize pre-coated glass. From mid-2018, sedak will be able to produce glass in the dimensions of 3.51m x 20m.
The BIG 5 is joined by a network of 300,000 suppliers and buyers of construction products from 120 countries. The name represents the five biggest industry sectors: construction, glass and metal, water technology and environment, air conditioning and refrigeration engineering, as well as cleaning and maintenance.
