Transparency unlimited: sedak produces world’s largest glass

The production in Gersthofen (Germany) is in full swing, in 2018, also for glass up to 3.51m x 20m!

From mid-2018, the German glass manufacturer sedak (Gersthofen, Germany) will fabricate glass up to 3.51m x 20m, CEO Bernhard Veh has announced. With the new record dimensions, sedak further expands its leading position as a specialist for exceptionally large glass. The technology leap was a consistent step, explained Veh. “From year to year, the demand for oversize glass formats rises. Ten years of experience and the continuing good order situation encouraged us to take the next step.”

By expanding its production capabilities, sedak becomes the world’s only manufacturer for glass of that size. Since 2007, the Bavarian company has been establishing itself as a specialist for exceptionally large dimensions and investing steadily in its own research and development. Besides the pioneer work, like extensive tests for technical approvals, sedak focuses on the knowledge and the experience of its own employees. “They are our most valuable resource,” says Veh.

In mid-2018, we will start producing 3.51m x 20m long glass,“ announces Bernhard Veh, CEO of sedak.

The production of 20-meter long glass will start in mid-2018. The special machines have been ordered. Each of them is tailored to sedak’s special requirements and developed in close cooperation with the machine manufacturers. Therefore, the glass units can be produced in the quality typical for sedak; and the manufacturer stays the top performer for record dimensions.

Full supplier with long list of references

In the glass industry, sedak has been establishing itself as a full supplier for glass up to 16.5m. All production steps are
highly automated. sedak’s competence for oversize glass can be easily recognized when looking at the latest, realized projects: Replacement of the 13m high glass units of the façade of the UNO building “United Nations Conference on Trade and Development”, production and delivery of the 15.5m long glass laminates for the façade of the shopping mall Iconsiam in Bangkok, the representative office building “111 South Main Street” in Salt Lake City with glass fins up to 11m and unique glass laminates with wood veneers in between the layers, and the fabrication of the 15m long glass units for the façade of Apple’s new headquarters in Cupertino.
