SentryGlas® interlayered glass for Museo Jumex

SentryGlas® interlayered glass for Museo Jumex

SentryGlas® by ionoplast interlayers from Trosifol have ensured maximum light, safety and security at Museo Jumex, Mexico City.

One of six projects shortlisted for the RIBA International Prize in 2016, the Museo Jumex is the first building in Latin America designed by renowned British architect Sir David Chipperfield.

The facility, which features walls of concrete and locally sourced travertine, was opened in 2013 and more than doubled the exhibition space of the collection’s previous home. It makes significant use of advanced internal and external glazing solutions to satisfy the architect’s interest in using natural light as much as possible.

Mounted on 14 columns − which allows the grounfloor to open out to a urrounding public plaza − the museum includes five floors, three of which are dedicated exhibition spaces. There are also levels for educational and academic programs, a bookstore, a café and the foundation’s headquarters.

The glazing solutions used in the structure incorporate SentryGlas® ionoplast interlayers from Trosifol in order provide optimal light transmittance, strength and safety. The large glazed panels, some as big as 1.2 x 6.0 m (3.9 x 20 ft), comprise two 10 mm annealed glass panes sandwiching a 1.52 mm (60 Mil) SentryGlas® interlayer.
