Museum of World War II
Vetrotech Saint Gobain has always made sure to live up to the expectations of architects and engineers in terms of innovative aesthetics. These principles were also followed in the case of the Museum of the Second World War in Gdańsk, where several hundred square meters of glass ceiling, class REI 60, can endure the load of 5 kN/m2 while offering uncompromised fire-resistance. Moreover, this solution includes thermal insulation, which ensures that the ceiling’s characteristics remain unaltered regardless of the weather conditions. The glass also features special non-slip silkscreen, designed to keep the museum's visitors safe.
