The Formula One complex in Bahrain will be fitted with glass produced at the Al-Quoz facility of Emirates Glass. Emirates Glass will supply a substantial 11,000 square meters of its top-of-the-line EmiCool NE low emissions glass.
EmiCool provides the optimal balance between requirements to keep the high temperatures of the Gulf out of the steel and glass buildings - while at the same time providing enough indoor light and aesthetic appearances. EmiCool also provides good night view by reducing indoor reflection and helps save on electricity.
The contractor for the Formula One project, Aluminium Services and the architect Tilke, selected EmiCool by Emirates Glass out a wide international field of suppliers. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of this year.
Bahrain has injected $150 million into the Middle East's first Formula One Grand Prix circuit. Organizers say more than 20,000 tickets have already been sold – and expect to attract 70,000 for the first race on April 4. — (menareport.com)
