In the Carnegie Science Center, a new 23-foot freestanding fire-rated curtain wall now overlooks a café and helps open up views of the Ohio River in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Indovina Associates Architects chose TGP’s Fireframes® Curtainwall Series with Pilkington Pyrostop® fire-resistive-rated glass to create the stunning expanse. Strong and slender, the system features a tall free span without any tie-back for structural support. It visually complements an adjacent non-fire-rated glass curtain wall, creating a unified interior. Further improving connectivity, TGP’s Fireframes Curtainwall Series also surrounds a nearby elevator shaft.
