Edgetech teams up with Glasbiegerei Döring for KÖ-Bogen Düsseldorf
Edgetech Europe GmbH, recently teamed up with customer Glasbiegerei Döring to work on the prestigious KÖ-Bogen project in Düsseldorf. The combined expertise and high standard of performance was crucial to achieving the high end finish required.
Joachim Stoss, managing director with responsibility for Edgetech in Europe says: “We were pleased to support Glasbiegerei Döring, a bent glass producer of SAINT-GOBAIN Glassolutions, in this exciting project to help them realize the vision of New York Architect Daniel Libeskind for the 26 meter high, 500 meter circumference KÖ-Bogen buildings. The project was challenging with over 2,200sqm of glass required in total with the individual elements of the façade glass measuring 1.35m x 2.70m and 2.70m x 5.60m. A project of this size and complexity could only be completed through close collaboration between all parties and years of combined expertise.
Carsten Kunert of Glasbiegerei Döring comments: “The requirement for excellent energy efficiency and the desire for curved glass façades in architecture is increasing and this project is a stunning example of how well those two things can be executed side by side, with no compromise necessary. Super Spacer®
is easy to apply and offers excellent performance in the field.”
Joachim Stoss concludes: “Super Spacer®
offers a strong performance in the field thanks to the bond of the adhesive and the precision of application it allows in double or triple glazed units. Super Spacer®
has been used in prestigious projects like this for over 20 years and we are confident it will continue to be used for many more years to come.”
