FX5120 from SHERWIN-WILLIAMS PROTECTIVE AND MARINE COATINGS’ Firetex range is providing two-hour fire protection for key elements of the steel structure of the Flame Towers project in the Baku district of Azerbaijan. The structure comprises three separate 198-metre high towers; the south tower provides residential accommodation, a hotel in the north tower provides 318 rooms over 36 floors, and the west tower comprises 33,000 square metres of class A commercial office space.
Drawn from Azerbaijan’s ancient history of fire worshipping, the towers were designed to act as an eternal flame for modern Baku. The goal of the project was to create a low-resolution media façade to display video content, while integrating inconspicuous lighting fixtures into existing architecture.
