We installed six glazed cubicles at Rašínovo nábřeží

September 12, 2019 – As part of the project to revitalise the right bank of the Vltava River, the embankment at Rašínovo nábřeží has received a complete makeover. Sipral partook in its transformation by installing pivoting doors with giant glass lenses almost 5.4 metres in diameter and 1.7 tons in weight into six glazed cubicles.


The fitting of the pivoting doors designed by Petr Janda / brainwork architectural studio at Prague’s Rašínovo nábřeží embankment was preceded by the production of a technical mock-up, the fixing of steel frames and the subsequent installation of elliptical lenses made of acrylic glass, which are up to 7 cm thick. The doors open by means of an electric motor installed below the floor level. The entire 10.5 hour process to install the largest lens in cubicle No. 6 was shot by our cameraman Ondřej Pekárek.

The City of Prague accepted all 20 reconstructed cubicles for use in early September 2019.
