Retailers like large glass panels, as they invite the customer in to the shop by presenting an open, bright environment, and show the shop’s wares to the casual those passing by to catch their attention.
But installing big glass panels is not an easy process. They are heavy and, being glass, prone to scratches or cracks. Innovative Aluminium and Glass has, over many years, developed real expertise for installing even the largest glass panels, such as those in a project we completed for Central Park shop fronts.
Using cranes, advanced equipment, and the skills of our team, we were able to install panels as large as 9 metres high and three metres wide. These would weight a massive 1.3 tonnes a piece. To achieve this we needed to use specially designed, heavy duty sections that are typically only used in high rise buildings and the most modern shop fronts.
Aesthetics are also important with retail installations, as a modern, stylish building will always attract the eye of a potential customer. For the Central Park shop fronts project, we also worked closely with JML Construction Group on ensuring that the client was happy with the design of the façade. We installed commercial louvers to give the shop front a modern, chic look, creating the impression of something larger than life.
