In total, 446 glass units with different types of measurements have been installed. Regular ones of 1015x1000 mm and others with a semicircular shape to complete the circles of the cover. The glass used is opaque, made of crystalline silicon, where the front of the glass is acid etch and the rear layer includes a black frit for a more homogeneous aesthetics.
