Lasiliiri Oy delivered glass railings to the new Allas Sea Pool, Helsinki city center

The Pool Sea Pool offers new ways to enjoy the Baltic Sea in Helsinki, the city’s most central location. The pool is open all year round and offers experiences and recreation for both city dwellers and tourists. The Pool Pool is an urban oasis with a large pool area and magnificent saunas.

The challenge in the project was the weather resistance of laminated glass. The open edge structures of the glass railings also set requirements that Lasiliiri Oy was able to meet well. Tempered glass met the requirements for safety and weather resistance.

The glass of the exterior railings is laminated with EVALAM film, which is better than the previously used PVB lamination film, at all values. EVALAM is EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate) with excellent light transmission and brightness, high adhesion, good sound insulation and a unique glass-reinforcing molecular crosslinking structure. A crosslink is a bond between two or more molecules that forms the strength and durability of laminated glass. Thanks to its strong cross-linking of more than 87%, EVALAM is significantly better in strength and durability than any thermoplastic, such as PVB. EVALAM has been developed to withstand moisture well. This thus prevents the dreaded delamination when the glass is exposed to demanding weather conditions for a long time when installed without edge protection. All of these together create the best material for use in solutions that require optical properties and durability.
