We offer coordinated design, production and installation, all under a strict ISO 9001 compliance, which guarantees quality and consistency.

Modern glass facades are exploring the uncompromising aesthetics of incorporating decorative glass into curtain-wall elements. From the simplest of lines to more elaborate designs, transparent glass never has to look the same with the addition of silk-screening, sandblasting, opaci-coating or other surface treatments. Direct printing from computer to glass eliminates the need to prepare, store, clean or maintain expensive and delicate screens and will no longer prevent designers to create customized, intricate multi-colored designs, further made durable and safe through heat treatment. Digital printing on glass opens a whole new realm of possibilities for architects and designers by offering a cost-effective method to create exclusive designs for large facades, windows, skylights, balconies, internal partitions or for individual pieces.

In order to provide greater resistance to thermal and mechanical stresses, AAG offers fully tempered, heat strengthened and heat soak tested glass for appropriate locations and suitable functions.

To offer premium protection with regards to safety, security and impact or to enhance acoustic performance, laminated glass is the ideal medium. AAG offers furthermore off-line processed solar, single and double silver coating types to cover a comprehensive range of high performance glass for all types of commercial and residential buildings.

The high performance and selective low emissivity glass-products, processed under license of one of the world's leading coating companies, are assessed and listed with an internationally recognized pre-assessment database.

These coatings are judiciously assembled into insulated glass units, meeting the most exacting criteria for improved solar and thermal performance. AAG\’s bent and heat treated glass allows architects and designers to escape for conventional flat designs and venture into more challenging facades, balustrades, staircases and partitions

Offers systems for both internal and external applications including glass balustrades and railings, straight and spiral staircases, glass canopies, glass skylights, glass ceilings, façades, door claddings, point-fix tension rod and cable walls, marine yacht ID work and much more.

Steel and glass are synergistic materials and are often used in facades and roofs of multi-storey buildings. The glass panels are generally supported by separate vertical steel elements to the main structural frame of the building that may be internal or external to the building. Painted Steel and hollow steel sections and or Stainless Steel are often used in combination with glass.

Façade systems comprise the structural elements that provide lateral and vertical resistance to wind and other actions and the building envelope elements that provide the weather resistance and thermal, and fire-resisting properties. The types of a façade system that are used depend on the type and scale of the building and on local planning requirements that may affect the building’s appearance about its location and zone. In multi-storey buildings, unitized curtain walling systems have been developed that are attached to the floors or edge beams of the primary steel structure. Steel and Glass are also widely used in façade and roofing systems, and the local attachments are in the form of painted and or galvanized steel brackets, sometimes even in stainless steel brackets, depending on the façade requirement.

Our in-house facility provides international standard quality performance coatings or aluminium. Coatings include standard, super and hyper durable powders, 2/3/4 coat PVDF Kynar and also Al Abbar's unique Air-Dry System used for repairing and the coating of oversize materials.
