Wicona’s curtain walling will be used on the venue for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games

Wicona has supplied its aluminium Wictec 50 curtain walling solution for the Emirates Arena and Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, venue for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

The Wictec system was specified to accommodate large unsupported spans of glass of up to 4m long.

The curtain walling was faceted for the velodrome to follow the curve of the building and was used with curved bull nose caps to add interest to the facade by accentuating the horizontal profiles.
