A stunning 53 ft. diameter oculus and “Sky Reflector Net” pours daylight into the Fulton Center’s grand atrium and the glass-enclosed retail spaces lining it. The design team specified a non-rated SteelBuilt Curtainwall® System from Technical Glass Products (TGP) on the lower level since its narrow mullions maximized the glass size. To maintain a seamless aesthetic with the fire-rated curtain wall system required by code on the upper level, they chose Fireframes® Curtainwall Series frames from TGP. Formed from steel tubes and shaped in an extrusion-like process, the slender mullions offer a close visual match to nearby non-rated systems. To further maintain continuity, TGP provided Pilkington Pyrostop® fire-rated glass with the same decorative custom frit pattern of the non-rated glass.
