Glazed Entrances Supported by Hanging Glass Fins

Scope Of Work

JML employed to supply and install five structural glazed entrances at the Meraas Outlet Mall in Jebel Ali. The system involved a glass wall being supported by hanging glass fins and structural silicone. No spiders or patch fitting were to be used. This was the first time the system had been used in the Middle East and Laing O Rourke approached JML after being told by a number of subcontractors that it was too difficult. The challenge was to position the glass fins, measuring up to 10 metres and 58mm thick into position and then secure the individual glass panels, each weighing up to 400kg, to the suspended fins with structural silicone.
