Most of the working population spends as much time in the office and commercial spaces as they do in their private residential homes. Therefore, it is particularly important to provide working and office environments that can be healthy and ergonomic.
The elements of multi-comfort are defined in the Saint-Gobain strategy, namely: luminosity, acoustic, humidity, temperature and comfort that allow individuals to be more productive as they enjoy their own wellbeing in their working area.
The dimension of safety is also essential in any living space as most of the population in the Middle East spend ninety percent of their time indoors.
Saint-Gobain is an advocate of creating collaborative working areas that enhance productivity and comfort for the occupants of commercial and office buildings.
The Glass Business commercial glazing solutions are manufactured to provide energy-efficient and aesthetically pleasing options for modern buildings. The range of solutions for commercial glazing provides solar control, thermal insulation and better sound reduction. Allowing the right day light for the wellbeing of the occupants besides blocking the heat is essential for offices. Low glare and light transmittance 20% – 30% and Solar Factor 0.20 – 0.25 is recommended for the office buildings. SGG Cool-Lite KT family, low-e glass from the house of Saint-Gobain, will achieve this. For the partitioning SGG Masterglass with its exclusive 6 patterns will add an elegant touch to your office. For wall paneling, a creative white board or a modern meeting table SGG Planilaque with its range of 26 colors will suit your interior design.
In commercial spaces, the glazing must be capable of stopping the spread of fire from one floor to the next one. It is required to have maximum transparency and anti-glare, especially in display areas and shop fronts. Vetrotech is capable of combining the multifunctional properties to achieve fire resistance with extra transparency while addressing the glare issues.
With SageGlass, people stay connected to their surroundings. Visual barriers like blinds or shades are unnecessary with SageGlass. Even at its darkest tint, the dynamic glazing remains transparent to preserve outdoor views and a connection to the natural environment, which has been shown to boost productivity and satisfaction in the workplace. When appropriate, the electronically tintable glazing darkens to prevent sunlight and heat from entering the building, a function which can significantly reduce energy consumption and the need for HVAC. By also reducing glare and balancing daylight levels, SageGlass improves occupants’ comfort and wellbeing – key attributes of high-quality working spaces.

Pipework is a building’s arteries, passing through thick structural elements, such as walls, and slabs. They are initially designed to contain a fire, since the main risks for wastewater pipe systems, in addition to early collapse, is that they could feed, and potentially spread a fire. As a fire can have even more harmful effects in office and commercial buildings, the careful selection of pipe material is key to protecting people and properties. Cast Iron, unlike other materials frequently used for drainage, is inherently non-combustible. The Saint-Gobain PAM complete range of Cast Iron pipes and fittings offers a naturally fire proof material that will contribute to the safety of assets and users. In the case of a fire, it won’t contribute to the spreading of flames and does not need maintenance of additional items that may require periodical upkeep and could eventually fail (fire collars, fire stoppers, etc.).

Solar Gard window films provides more temperature stability in the building by rejecting up to 79% of solar energy, it also reduces annoying glare which improves visibility on computer screens, which monitors and minimize eye strain. Peak load reduction: One of the biggest challenges in building management today is balancing peak energy usage with climate control and interior comfort. Solar Gard window films reject up to 79%5 of solar energy to regulate heat absorption and cut air conditioning and cooling costs. Reduce Your Carbon Footprint: Solar Gard analyzed and published the carbon impact of Solar Gard and Panorama architectural solar control window films through a Life Cycle Analysis following ISO 14040 and 14025 standards. Solar Gard’s resulting Climate Declaration showed that these films are carbon negative, producing a net reduction in greenbuildings gas emissions over their lifetime.
