Al-Farooq Corporation played a pivotal role in the conceptual design and value engineering for the frameless hurricane-resistant storefront glass system.

Warren Henry Auto Group will soon have a new showroom in North Miami, just south of Aventura located on Biscayne Boulevard and 151st Street. The new headquarters will be home to Land Rover, Jaguar, and INFINITI.

Al-Farooq Corporation was brought onto the project by longtime client, All American & Doors to provide shop drawings and calculations including architectural plans and elevations. In addition, Al-Farooq Corporation prepared the testing program and product approval for the new system. Originally planned with mullions, Al-Farooq Corporation played a pivotal role in the conceptual design and value engineering for the frameless hurricane-resistant storefront glass system.

The development will include the largest single glass panel approved and tested for the South Florida market. Each span of glass measures 15 ½ feet tall x nearly 8 feet wide. The ES-FX3050 by ES Windows is a frameless/mullion-less two-sided support system with an interior frame. With no vertical aluminum profiles, the glass system provides unobstructed views. The unique product is also 1 1/16” laminated, large missile impact rated glass.

It is the first time a glass system of this size has been used in South Florida.  A total of 1,115 square feet of glass will be used for the project’s storefront.
