Glass supply for Etihad Terminal completed


Emirates Glass, one of the leading processors of architectural flat glass in the Middle East and a subsidiary of Glass, which is wholly owned by Dubai Investments, has supplied 8,000 square metres of its premium EmiCool high performance glass products to the Etihad Airways Terminal at Abu Dhabi airport.

Emirates Glass completed the delivery of EmiTherm sealed insulated glass units comprising 8mm Emicool Plus NE270 Grey outer pane and 17.52mm clear laminated inner pane.

Folcra Beach Industrial Company is the architectural aluminium curtainwall contractor for the project.

The Etihad Airways Terminal project is part of the $6.8 billion (Dh24.9bn) Abu Dhabi airport expansion plan. This is the second time Emirates Glass has supplied the Abu Dhabi airport with its premium glass products. The firm supplied its products to the airport in 2005.

“Our ongoing expansion plan has greatly enhanced our chances of getting fresh contracts, thereby affirming our position as market leaders,” Ziad Yazbeck, general manager, Emirates Glass, said in a statement.

Emirates Glass has also delivered many projects in the UAE, Iran and Qatar.
