Project Name: Villa Ghabbouro
Location: Cairo, Egypt
Client: Vibrant Group Egypt
Architect: Hisham Moussa (EMAAR Misr for development S.A.E)
Product: Hansen ThermoSpan™ Hansen Fasad™
Hansen ThermoSpan bolted glass provides a totally flush façade, without penetration of the fixing bolt through the external skin, in double glazed and laminated applications. The uninterrupted external view as a result also maximises daylight penetration.
The panes of glass can be selected from the complete range of glass products from most major manufacturers.
Unique mechanical fixings create clean and uninterrupted glass structures without any external framing.
The Bolted Glass Double Skin allows the complete structure to be designed with insulating glass units.
Hansen ThermoSpan laminated bolted glass adds a further dimension in terms of safety, particularly where the glass is used in roof structures, canopies and atria.
Interstitial blinds can be introduced into ThermoSpan Laminated Double Skin, greatly enhancing privacy and environmental management possibilities.
