Located in Brooklyn’s Brownsville neighborhood, the new Rescue Company 2 facility is an architecturally imaginative firehouse specifically tailored to meet the practical and professional needs of firefighters. A system used within the firehouse is Technical Glass Products’ Fireframes® Curtainwall Series frames and Pilkington Pyrostop® fire-rated glass. An alternative to solid walls, the fire-rated curtain wall system provides clear sightlines while blocking the spread of flames and protecting against the transfer of radiant and conductive heat on the facility’s second floor. Completing the system, full-lite Fireframes® Designer Series doors ensure safe egress in addition to granting firefighters access to an elevated bridge.
