The Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Company (ADNEC) Capital Gate project that's currently under construction (CLICK HERE to read related article), is being built with glass manufactured by Cardinal Corp., a company that has predominantly served the residential window market.

The tower will feature the company's LoE2-240 coated glass laminated with 6-mm clear glass, 16-mm airspace with 13.52-mm laminated clear glass indoors.

Architects from RMJM, the United Kingdom-based firm that designed Capital Gate, say the chose the glass "for its anti-glare properties and excellent transparency."

The glass was produced at Cardinal's Spring Green, Wis., facility and sold to Intraco Corp. in Troy, Mich., the exclusive distributor for Cardinal CG throughout the Middle East. White Aluminum Factory in Abu Dhabi served as the glass fabricator.

The glass has two silver coatings, which help minimize glare and maximize light transmission. The architects say that when complete, the double-glazed façade will benefit from natural daylight in addition to achieving greater energy efficiency.

In a statement to USGNN.com™, Nicole V. Antakli, president and chief operating officer of Intraco, explained that the ADNEC Capital Gate Tower was awarded to Intraco as a result of the specification of Cardinal CG's product offering.

"Intraco's global reputation and unique structure with experienced sales professionals, trained product engineers, premier logistics services and its dedicated customer service offering timely after sales follow-up, creates the value-added support for both the manufacturer as well as any global customer," Antakli states. "With nearly 40 years of experience and presence throughout the Middle East, Intraco's network of regional-field sales engineers in every country drives demand and assures the highest quality engineered and fabricated glass by specifying high-performance, premium quality branded products for projects through different channels, including building owners, architects and fabricators. Intraco is proud of its association with Cardinal as they are a leader in the glass industry, manufacturing state-of-the-art glass and superior high-energy efficient products throughout the industry."
