To meet this dynamic brief, Komfort’s double glazed Polar Vision with a 15mm +/- 3-part deflection head and 2-part base was installed by Sound Interiors, the Subcontractor. This system was specified due to the line loading over an Atrium.
Polar Vision gives you a minimal, seamless style with confident lines and unrestricted views. The system is dry jointed and constructed without mullion posts, offering up to 30 mins fire protection for both integrity and insulation, and can provide up to 48dB (Rw) sound performance.

The project was completed in 2016 and was valued at around £26m. The factory successfully draws together world-leading research and technologies, and the seamless integration of computational and experimental models. It now provides a unique and flexible environment for future of innovation. The building achieved BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating. It was a pleasure to work with Sound Interiors on this remarkable project.
