Yachthouse Residence Club

The Yachthouse Residence Club, designed by Pininfarina and constructed by Pasqualotto, is located in Balneário Camboriú, Brazil.

Structural Silicone Glazing for the Tallest Building in Brazil

The Yachthouse Residence Club, designed by Pininfarina and constructed by Pasqualotto, is located in Balneário Camboriú, Brazil. With a height of 280 m / 919 ft, 81 stories, and with 30.000m2 of curtain wall, this measures to be the tallest building in Latin America.

Pininfarina, based in Turin, Italy, is a famous global designer of high-end luxury cars, such as Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Volvo, BMW, Fiat, etc., and they also work internationally in the fields of interior design and architecture.

Structural silicone glazing provides the ability to safely use adhesively bonded glass as a means to construct a curtainwall. To construct the Yachthouse’s curtain wall, the building contractors chose to use UltraGlaze™ SSG4600 sealant, which provides maximum design flexibility, exceptional performance and is primerless, making the process faster and safer.

The Power of Structural Silicone Glazing

Structural Silicone Glazing is a process where silicone—not metal hardware—is used to attach façade panels such as glass or other composites to a building’s frame. This allows architects to erect ever-more-impressive and complex buildings and structures, soaring to unprecedented heights and accomplishing a variety of shapes and angles.

With excellent strength and tear resistance, UltraGlaze SSG4600 offers enhanced safety and weatherproofing capabilities and is an excellent candidate for structural glazing applications.

Due to its unique properties, UltraGlaze SSG4600 provides an array of benefits, including:

• Quick Adhesion

• Primerless Application

• Low Temperature Flexibility

• High Temperature Stability

• UV Stability

• Seismic-Capable Flexibility

• Durability (endures high wind)

• Overall Savings on Project Costs

Another product used in the YachtHouse Residence Club is UltraPruf™ II SCS2900, a high performance silicone used in window sealing, in ACM, and at the joints of the glass curtain facades. This product provides high resistance to UV radiation and extreme weather, and remains permanently flexible with a ±50% movement capacity.
