Fila has completed treatment of one of the most awe-inspiring skyscrapers in Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates: the Nation Towers. This building comprises a luxury 5-star hotel, apartments, offices and shopping centers, all housed in two towers linked by the highest suspension bridge in the world, 202 meters off the ground. The exterior walls, clad in flame-treated, polished, black and white granite, were first washed with DETERDEK Grout Haze Remover, perfect for post installation cleaning, then protected with FILAHP98 sealer. The most eco-friendly materials have been used for this project, hence the choice of FILAHP98: a water-based product with low environmental impact (VOC free) and LEED certification, the international rating system that guarantees a building’s environmental sustainability.
