Polytherm Pool
Polytherm – Weibern, Austria

Unlimited weightlessness through glass 

For a rooftop infinity pool, sedak delivered a floor pane and a glass balustrade to a manufacturer of stainless steel swimming and whirlpools in Austria.

The floor of the pool was composed of a 12.96m x 2.49m 2x insulating glass built from a 4x and a 2x laminate. The 5.2t insulated stepped unit with four 80 mm-high steps was produced fully automatically on the sedak insulating glass line.

The glass balustrade, installed on the front end, is comprised of a 5x laminate and also forms the extreme limit of the roof. It affords a wide view over the landscape and blurs the borders between the
pool and the outside world. The glass floor of the pool and the panes on the balustrade provide the swimmer with more than just unusual views and a feeling oflimitless swimming. It also permits light to filter through the ceiling into the atrium-style exhibition below. The sunlight is broken up by the water into reflections that create a unique light atmosphere below.

The panes weight roughly 6 metric tons in total, meaning they had to be transported to the construction site in Weibern using sedak‘s special inloader trailer.
