seele builds full-size mock-ups to test structural glass designs, fittings, structural glazing adhesive joints and establish load-bearing and residual load-bearing capacities and provides all project services, including logistics and erection. Specially developed vacuum lifters and erection gear are available to handle large pane formats. The experienced seele erection crews work with maximum precision to ensure that large panes up to 48sqm in size are installed with millimetre accuracy.
Sometimes it’s the distance to the site that presents the biggest challenge. That was 16,000km in the case of the Apple store in Sydney, where a street had to be completely closed for erection. The timetable for delivering and setting up the panes was therefore very tight and called for especially focused operations.
