Shanghai World Financial Centre
Standing at a whopping 492 metres tall, Shanghai World Financial Centre is one of the tallest buildings in the world. It was designed by renowned American architectural firm, Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) and developed by the esteemed Mori Building Company of Japan. The Centre is a colossal, multipurpose skyscraper- comprising of offices, hotels, conference rooms, observation decks and shopping malls on its ground floor.
Approximately 100,000 m² of glass was treated with ClearShield® in the factory prior to installation in 2006. This meant that any harsh inorganic containments on the glass, such as concrete splatter and cement dust, was easier to remove during construction. Henceforth, ClearShield® reduced the likelihood of costly delays during construction and provided a significantly lower-cost alternative to replacing the glass due to surface damage.
