HIRT DESCENDING WALL IN THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
Some things are best experienced in real life. This particularly applies to the HIRT descending wall. Builders and architects can see the HIRT SF 90 live in action at Al Ghurair’s new showroom in Dubai. After all, what could be more impressive – and convincing – than 1.5 tons of glass gracefully disappearing into the ground without a sound.
VISUAL ACCENT AT AL GHURAIR CONSTRUCTION ALUMINIUM HEADQUARTERS
Al Ghurair became our exclusive distributor of HIRT swiss descending windows in the UAE in April 2018. With the installation of the HIRT SF 90 at their own headquarters, the company is making an architectural statement that is sure to delight customers, partners and employees alike. Each time the fully functional descending wall is set to motion, it impressively demonstrates what makes HIRT swiss descending windows so special.
SWISS QUALITY AS A GUARANTOR OF EXCELLENCE
The HIRT SF 90 (15.5 ft wide and 10.5 ft tall) opens the way to the outdoor terrace of the Al Ghurair showroom as it silently descends into the ground. The descending wall is made of dual insulated glass and is lowered and raised with an electromechanical drive.
A seven-man team was deployed in Dubai to install the descending wall, which weighs 3,300 lb. Kollegger Metallbau and Atom Holding successfully collaborated on this project.
For Al Ghurair Construction Aluminium, the descending wall is more than just a showpiece. It accentuates the architecture and adds a fascinating element of surprise to the headquarter’s façade. The sheer size and mass put into motion in a seemingly effortless manner impressively underscores the quality of Al Ghurair’s products. Top quality is the prime directive in every architectural project realized by Al Ghurair – and this is precisely what the distinguished product HIRT swiss descending windows is all about.
