Global Trade Center

The Project

Over 592,015 sq. ft. of Pilkington Eclipse Advantage™ Arctic Blue was used in this striking Global Trade Center (Huang An Building) twin tower project in the Chinese capital, Beijing.

The building owner was originally looking at an imported sputter coated blue reflective glass when selecting the glass for this building. Pilkington was able to demonstrate that Pilkington Arctic Blue Eclipse Advantage™ was a better product by emphasizing how it fit with current design trends, increased daylight transmittance, and reduced reflectivity all with Low-E properties.

Upon completion of the first installation, the unique and desirable blue hue of the glass helped in the successful leasing of office space in the building. The owner was also pleased with the availability of replacement glass due to the benefits of pyrolytic coatings.
