Saint-Gobain provides customers with its industrial expertise by developing, manufacturing, and selling a wide range of building materials designed to improve acoustic, thermal and aesthetic comfort in individual and multi-unit dwellings, while incorporating energy efficiency and functional qualities.
Saint-Gobain's strategy for this market relates to the future habitat, which respects all dimensions of comfort. Everybody wants to enjoy a sense of well-being in their own home, to feel safe, comfortable and protected from the impacts of the outside world. To meet this demand, Saint-Gobain provides, for example, aesthetic solutions (colored mortars, fabrics that can be painted, etc.), light management and acoustic comfort (ceilings and plasterboards).
Saint-Gobain has launched a dry construction system in Brazil, with Brasilit, Placo, Isover and Weber products that do not require water at the construction site. Quick, clean, sustainable and affordable, it is suitable for all types of construction and was first used in social housing scheme Minha Casa, Minha Vida, in Ponta Grossa/PR.
On the works of a high-end residence in Rio de Janeiro/RJ, all the Saint-Gobain's materials are highlighted: intelligent glass (which is able to regulate and filter temperature and is self-cleaning), Placo drywall (light material, with high acoustic performance), Isover acoustic insulation, Brasilit cement sheets, applied to a steel-frame structure. These materials have improved the time of work and provided greater sustainability to the project. According to the architect of the project, the use of drywall was the best solution to align and replace the existing walls without placing a large load on them and on the structures. Another factor in the choice is the excellent acoustic performance and finishing that the drywall allows.
Saint-Gobain Glass supplied the glass that was used for the staircase that decorates the interior of the yacht, Hemisphere 140, manufactured by MCP Consultoria e Engenharia Naval, and considered the largest boat ever built of aluminum in Latin America. The spiral staircase is made of glass and stainless steel, with a self-supporting system, in which each plate of glass is supported by another. The project provides lightness to the environment thanks to SGG MASTER-CARRÉ®, glass with LED lights, which increases the luminosity of the steps and raises the ladder to the level of a luxury item.
