Shenzhen Qianhai Financial Center (QFC) is designed and built by United States Siu Watson hand in hand with the Shenzhen Heng Yu Group.locates in the national economic center Qianhai Guiwan,the first line commercial landmark sea complex building in this area
The project brings together the international first-line teams: the architectural design authority-TFP, Interior Design Master-Woods Bag, the world’s largest commercial real estate management-CBRE and others,to create a world-class high-end financial business cluster.
The T1 project that Xinyi glass company got using LEED golden grade, GB green triple-star certification,will build eco-green business benchmark.The project has a construction height of 250 meters, the total usage amount of hollow glass reaches 40,000 square meters, in order to achieve the grand sea landscape view, all use 2.75 meters width,double silver ultra-clear Low-E insulating glass: 10mm ultra-white semi-tempered glass /1.9mmPVB/10mm ultra-clear Semi-tempered double silver Low-E + 12A + 15mm ultra-clear tempered glass.which is the highest configuration energy-saving glass.both ultra-wide glass installation are the first time to use in the south china regions.
Ultra-wide glass products mean the width of the glass is over 2.4m,extra-wide designs will make the building more “grand”, but there are some problems for the glass itself: from raw materials to processing equipment, from processing operations to transport and many more.
Ultra-wide glass also means the sq.m increase for a single glass sheet,in order to resist wind pressure, the glass thickness must be thickner. The project takes extra thick structure, the glass thickness is close to 50mm,the glass height is 4.5 meters,and single glass weight reaches 1 ton,which all exceeds the capacity of ordinary equipments.For general,the max width of the equipment is about 2.4 meters, such as: tempering furnace, coatings line, laminated line.Considering trend of extra-wide,extra large glass panel,the Xinyi glass factory has already taken into account,they increased the investment to the equipment,so that the maximum glass sizes can meet the customer’s requirements, such as the maximum coating line size is 3.3 meters width and 12 meters length, and the maximum hollow glass size is 3.3 meters width and 6 meters length.
The project uses ultra-wide,ultra large 15mm extra clear float glass,also for other china glass manufacturers,the max size is only 2.4m wideth and 3.66m length,that is not ok to meet the processing needs.But Xinyi Glass Dongguan branch has their own ultra-white float glass production lines,and is making ultra clear float glass for many years, well meet the customized requirements of this project.in this case,also the delivery will be guaranteed.
The T1 project of Qianhai Financial Center will surely become another markable project of Xinyi Glass in southern China region, and also will enhance the brand influence of Xinyi Glass.
