The new star of the Sagrada Familia, with LuxRaff®_Solid glass.

December 3rd, 2021

Gaudí determined that the tower of Mary "will be crowned with a luminous 12-pointed star". Today it is reality ... and with SEVASA's LuxRaff®_Solid glass.

A milestone in structural engineering and lighting, with a diameter of 7.5 meters and installed at a height of 138 m, it is capable of withstanding any natural phenomenon, even the impact of a 100 kg object at full speed.

Glass LuxRaff® Solida singular star.

Every unique glass project has demanding functional requirements, and at SEVASA we pride ourselves on always being able to offer the precise finish:

Glass LuxRaff®_Solid SEVASA, with its ability to diffuse light (natural and artificial), beautiful translucent anti-reflective screen and high surface hardness has been chosen as the outer layer of this spectacular structure.

A point of light which during the day captures and diffuses sunlight and at night is illuminated in white with LED technology for each of the 12 points.

It is composed of a triple laminate that combines LuxRaff®_Solid 6 mm in #face1 and in #face6 a Cricursa Crifusing glass -textured and fused at high temperature- with beautiful watery/ice textures.

The larger pieces measure 449 x 1666 mm and the smaller ones 635 x 356 mm, integrated into the stainless steel structure, finishing off the pyramidal edges.

The structure, costing 1.5 million euros and weighing 5.5 tons, can be visited from inside the tower, a 60-meter hollow cavity with 800 triangular windows.

When Gaudí designed the work, they were illuminated with gas lamps. He already had the vision that electricity would be the future, although he did not yet predict LED lighting.

Nowadays, the tower of the Virgin Mary and its star is the tallest tower of the basilica, and represents a change in the skyline of the building, including Barcelona.
