Contemporary transparency for colonial palace

In order to improve the thermal and acoustic comfort in the halls and galleries, a double-glazed wall was placed behind the existing glazing in the nearly six metre high façade – Janisol Primo Profiles were used for this purpose. For increased stability, these were reinforced with rear-sulphur slats. The gallery is divided in sections by glass fixtures with VISS Fire (EI60) and Janisol 2 profiles (EI30) – with semicircular skylight analogous to the vault of the gallery. They optimize the fire protection and the climate of the exhibition rooms. The Janisol 2 fire protection system made of steel with its filigree profiles meets the requirements in terms of structural safety and design freedom like no other system.
