Glasstec Special Display

The special section 'glass technology live', presented by the Glasstec-International trade fair in Dusseldorf was dedicated not only to traditional aspects of glass production and processing but first and foremost to climate protection and energy efficiency. An architecture congress and a symposium at which leading trade professionals presented short addresses on research and practice supplemented the show.

Besides multifunctional glass types, coatings and innovative glass design techniques, issues such as insulation, solar protection, photovoltaic and solar thermals in glass technology took centre stage.

The latest developments in and applications for insulation glass, windows and facades were also showcased, along with a broad range of innovative products for energy efficient and integrative building envelopes.

Besides Herzog de Meuron, Delugan Meissl and Massimiliano Fuksas, among others, Rudolf Trachsel of BGP delivered a lecture at the congress on 'Forum Chriesbach - A Sustainable Building'.
