Transmission glazing for Skyway Monte Bianco

Transmission glazing for Skyway Monte Bianco

AGC Glass has provided its high light transmission glazing, Planibel Clearvision, for the facade of the Skyway Monte Bianco building in Italy. The glazing enables you to fully benefit from this 360° view over the magnificent Aosta Valley.

The Cillara Rossi architectural firm in charge of this project had put forward very strict requirements: the glass had to be perfectly neutral but still provide optimal thermal qualities. Almost 2,000 m² of glass was cut to size (each unit was a different size) and assembled as triple-glazing by the AGC Interpane plant in Plattling.

The site of the project, located in hostile terrain and exposed to the vagaries of the weather, was not the easiest. For example, the panes of glass had to be transported to the summit using a system of pulleys between the months of May and October in order to take advantage of more favourable weather conditions.

The result however is fabulous. AGC’s Planibel Clearvision offers a clear and uninterrupted view on the self-proclaimed 8th wonder of the world.
