Agglotech has been a featured player in an intriguing and challenging project for Doha’s Sendin Tower, providing some 10,000 square meters (over 100,000 sq ft) of terrazzo for the building’s exterior cladding.
SB 138 Ghiaccio with honed finish is the material that the designers chose due to its uniform color and technical characteristics. Its low coefficient of linear thermal expansion, together with its excellent ability to reflect sunlight, makes Agglotech terrazzo the perfect material for the exterior cladding of buildings situated in particularly hot climates.
Thanks to new assembly techniques and research and development in materials creation, Agglotech terrazzo is being increasingly used for rear-ventilated rainscreens for the aesthetic and technical benefits that this material brings to the table, creating an insulating layer that protects against humidity and keeps interiors warm in the winter. In summer, the heat of the sun is kept out of the building, so the inside stays cool.
