Glazing installed at ground level is ideally suited to illuminate rooms below with daylight. The requirements for such glazing are high. According to the standard, the glass must be designed to be walkable, which results in a corresponding glass structure. In the case of the element recently installed in Zermatt, the glass pane measures 2 x 3 meters. The heavyweight weighs a full 1.7 tons.
Special attention was paid to the waterproofing. Thanks to the system we developed specifically for walk-on glazing, the sealing level is protected under the glass. The visibly sealed joint between the glass and the metal frame is additionally drained. This guarantees a tight construction with adequate durability. A solid solution, which, by the way, was co-designed by the client, and does justice to the unique view of the Matterhorn.
