One of the aquarium enthusiasts who reside in Dubai,UAE approached us so that we can make his 4th and largest aquarium. His main requirement was to have a 2.2mx2mx1m (LxWxH) aquarium that is easy to rich in to for maintenance, so accessibility was a criteria in his mind.
Our final design was a 4,400 liter saltwater reef aquarium with a 31.5mm laminated glass. Our implementation was based on Euro Bracing concept, so there are no supports between the opposite glasses thus giving a better view of the aquarium from above and also it was easier for him to access it.
Another challenge we faced for this aquarium was the filtration system as the base of this aquarium was very low we couldn’t place the filtration on the bottom. Thus we created a compartment on side of the aquarium to handle and contain the water which is going to be filtered.
