Company White Paper

World's slimmest glass-composite facade

The ideas for the facade originally came from the Composites Laboratory at INHolland University of Applied Sciences. The special feature of the facade is that the main load-bearing structure is virtually invisible visually. The glass-composite facade is completely flat on both sides thanks to our composite tubes placed in the cavity of the insulation windows. The thickness of the glass panels is 54 millimeters, making INHolland’s facade the slimmest glass-composite facade in the world.

Way ahead of its time

A glass cavity with composite cables; this is a solution that was ahead of its time 10 years ago. The supporting action is designed so that the vertical cables located in the cavity glass act like a sail. That means the facade can move back and forth up to 30 centimeters under horizontal wind loads.

The cables located in the glass are made of aramid. The lining in the glass and the cavity slats consist of carbon. This is a very special solution to achieve an extremely slim facade.

Take up the challenge

With carbon and fiberglass, an entire facade is not immediately thought of, but it is possible. This application is a good example of the innovative projects we love to work on.
