Fire-rated Framing System Makes the Grade at Johnson & Wales University Center

A key component of DBVW Architects’ plans to turn a historic jewelry factory into a high-tech facility for Johnson & Wales University physician assistant students was creating an open, vibrant atmosphere. To achieve the desired transparency the firm faced the challenge of finding a fire-rated glazing system that satisfied building codes while also supporting transparency to the entry.

DBVW Architects found the solution by combining Fireframes® Aluminum Series fire-rated frames with Pilkington Pyrostop® transparent fire-rated glazing, both supplied by Technical Glass Products (TGP).
