To provide sweeping views of the interior and preserve the expansive feel of the space in two open staircases, Scott/Edwards used Pilkington Pyrostop® fire-rated glass and Fireframes® Curtainwall Series fire-rated frames from Technical Glass Products at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum IMAX Theater. The glass looks like ordinary window glass and provides a clear view in and out of the stairs. The curtain wall frames and doors are sleek and slender, unlike the bulky wrap-around style of traditional hollow metal steel. Together, the glass and frames are fire-rated for two hours and meet the highest impact safety ratings for glazing - CPSC 16CFR1201 Category II.
