Fireframes SG Curtainwall® Series from TGP Allows for Smooth, Monolithic Fire-rated Glazed Walls

Technical Glass Products’ (TGP) new Fireframes SG Curtainwall® Series allows design professionals to create large, fire-rated glazed walls with the smooth, monolithic appearance of a structural silicone glazed system.

Once installed, the patented, fire-rated toggle retention system features an uninterrupted surface appearance that provides up to 120 minutes of fire resistance for interior and exterior applications. www.fireglass.comJeff Razwick, president of Technical Glass Products, says:“Codes require architects to have fire-rated materials, but that doesn’t mean they should compromise on aesthetic goals.That’s where the Fireframes SG Curtainwall Series comes into play. It bridges the gap between fire-rated and conventional curtain wall systems, combining fire resistance with a frameless glass exterior.”

The Fireframes SG Curtainwall Series is fabricated in the United States, and consists of Pilkington Pyrostop® fire-resistive-rated glass attached to narrow, steel, fire-rated frames with a toggle retention system.

The assembly is silicone sealed and requires no pressure plates or caps. Its toggle retention system becomes completely hidden once installed, allowing for a sleek, frame-free exterior surface. On the backside of the system, steel fire-rated frames provide high strength and clean sightlines.

To expand design freedom, captured options also are available, including captured perimeter, two-sided captured vertical and two-sided captured horizontal.
