Deck Railing with 27/32″ Thick Glass

We are finishing up the installation of a 27/32″ thick glass railing system, using a CRL Base Shoe.  The glass consists of two pieces of 3/8″ thick clear tempered glass with a Dupont Sentryglas Interlayer that is .060 thick.  Here are some photos taken during the installation.  This project was also featured in a previous blog post on options for structural glass railings.

Dupont Sentryglas in Sound Studio for Superior STC Rating

We recently worked on a sound studio in Sonoma County .  We used glass with Dupont’s Sentryglas Laminated Interlayer in both the interior glass and exterior windows and doors.  The interior sound studio glass consisted of 1 1/16″ and 3/4″ thick tempered laminated glass units with .060 Sentryglas Interlayers.   The exterior windows and doors were Fleetwood Bronze Anodized Aluminum with Sentryglas Interlayer in laminated glass assembled into insulated units with PPG’s SolarBan 60 Lowe Tempered to meet Wildland Urban Interface Code requirements.

The hardest part of the project was getting the glass into the openings.  To get the interior glass installed it required close coordination with Old Town Glass and the General Contractor’s Crew in order to move the glass into place using Forklifts, Gradalls, Man Power, and rollers to get the glass to the opening inside the building.

Frameless Shower Door and Toilet Room Enclosure in San Francisco Project

This project featured a Toilet Room and Shower Enclosure in a Master Bathroom of a residential project.  The designer designed these units to be mirror images of each other.  On the Toilet Room, Satin Etch glass on Starphire was used.  On the Shower Enclosure, Starphire (Clear) was used.  In order to install the units without the use of a header, the fixed glass panels in this neo angle unit were attached to U channels buried into the ceiling.  There is also u channel buried in the floor to capture the bottom of the panels.

One Project, Three Fenestration Solutions – Part 1

We are wrapping up a residential project in Marin County that utilized three different fenestration products we offer.   The project features Marvin Aluminum Clad Windows and Doors on three sides of the project and Fire Rated Wall Assemblies from Safti First on the fourth side.  The Fire Rated wall assemblies were used to satisfy code requirements for property line windows.  In order to match the Marvin Aluminum Clad Ebony Exterior and the painted wood interior, the fire rated windows were ordered with black exterior cladding on the GPX framing and white interior cladding.

The general contractor on the project then trimmed out the interiors of the fire rated windows to match the interior detailing on the Marvin windows.  A glass block window from Pacific Glass Block was used in the shower to provide a window solution for a wet location and provide obscure glass so that the neighbors can not see in.

 

Products Used: Safti First Fire Rated Windows, 60 Minute GPX Frames, Marvin Ebony Clad Windows and Doors
