Founded in 2007, sedak in Gersthofen, Germany, is the world’s leading manufacturer of oversize insulating and safety glass. The glass fabricator supplies glass units in dimensions up to 3.2m x 16m: processed, tempered, laminated, printed, coated and cold bent. The company has developed to a medium-sized and now independent corporation with 150 employees and a subsidiary in Jersey City. The core capabilities are the lamination of glass, edging, and the company’s know-how of producing glass components with additional functional, and decorative elements.
sedak opens up extraordinary architectural design possibilities combined with economical advantages for façade constructors, architects, and contractors. The production has been optimized for glass up to 16m long; all finishing steps are handled in-house e.g. with the new, fully automated insulating glass line that produces insulating glass units up to 102mm thick.
All products are obtainable colored, printed, specially treated for a thermal or sound insulation, as well as for sun protection. sedak products are used for façades, glass roofs, balustrades, and stairs as well as for custom-made products, and ships. The world’s only full supplier for a glazing in this large size, sees itself as a partner for architects, contractors, designers, and façade constructors.
Several architectural mile stones live on the creative power offered by glass manufactured by sedak.
