Revolution museum

Location: Cairo, Egypt

Distributor: Polytech Egypt

Product: 4 and 6mm Marlon FSX, 10mm Marlon ST

This unusual, interesting, highly engineered museum roof won 2nd prize in the Architecture and Construction (rooflights and facades) category of Brett Martin’s iAwards, November 2020.

The Revolution Command Museum in Cairo displays artefacts associated with the July 1952 revolution and is located where the leadership of the revolution met.

The bold design, which allows light to flood into the building, would have been difficult to achieve in glass.  Marlon, being light weight and easy to cold bend, allowed the impressive design to be realised.

What our customer said:

“Marlon polycarbonate is one of the main materials we have worked with in the past and will continue to work with in the future. It provided an ideal engineering solution in this project with its non-traditional design which could not be achieved with glass. Our experience of over 23 years and the full and continuous technical support provided by Brett Martin helped in the handling and installation of the product. ” Polytech Egypt
