Installing curved glass at the Atrium Tower Amsterdam

A considerable effort is currently under way to renovate the famous Atrium office building in Amsterdam. In addition to the renovation of the current premises, two further towers are being built to expand the office complex. In order to alternate between workplaces and light, open spaces, the company Octatube from Delft is integrating seven winter gardens into in the corners of the towers.

The corners of the winter gardens consist of large, warm, curved glass elements. Octatube hired the VIAVAC compact Curved glass lifter to install these elements. This machine is designed specifically for placing curved glass elements, and can be adjusted to accommodate different radii. In addition, with the VIAVAC compact Curved, the elements can easily be rotated (360°) and tilted (90°) from their transport position.

For this project, Octatube is also using the VIAVAC GBX for the installation of flat glass elements. This glass lifter is suitable for lifting elements up to a weight of 800 kilograms.

Both glass lifters feature two independent vacuum circuits, eliminating the need for safety straps and allowing efficient operation. In addition to the option to rent, VIAVAC also offers the vacuum lifting tools for sale.
