Challenging Project Development with Implementation of Innovative AR Coating

Opera House Dubai design intent was to create a unique building in its appearance that is similar in to traditional sailing vessel of the Arabian Gulf. The objective of the internal non reflective coating is to ensure that features outside of the Opera House at night can be viewed within the Opera House without nuisance reflections. The development of this project together with Guardian team allowed us to find the best solution of DGU, where in combination with High Selective solar control glass with Clarity range glass, light reflection was reduced up to 6% internally, and 7% externally. This project was a challenge and innovation in architectural glass solutions at the same time, since antireflective glass from both sides coated in jumbo size was used for the first time in a façade.
