DuPont: SentryGlas® Plus used to create glass ceiling

DuPont SentryGlas® Plus is playing a starring role in an arresting convex lens ceiling at the new federal courthouse in Phoenix, Arizona.

Architects wanted the six-story Sandra Day O'Connor U.S. Courthouse to have an airy feel and originally intended to leave the structure's top open. But after deciding that option was not practical, the building's architect decided to create a breathtaking, suspended ceiling made of SentryGlas® Plus that would cap the courthouse artistically and meet all building regulations and environmental considerations.
In the latest issue of DuPont Magazine, Luke Lowings of New York-based James Carpenter Design Associates, which worked on the project, said: "The central 'lens' area of the ceiling acts as a diffuser for the artificial light, while the clear perimeter provides views of the sky from the floor."
