In KMK Place in Newfoundland, Canada, a two-hour fire-rated glass and framing system brings daylight deep into the building, while providing safe passage for people exiting the building through the atrium. The cutting-edge system features Technical Glass Products’ (TGP) Fireframes® Aluminum Series fire-rated frames and Pilkington Pyrostop® transparent wall panels. Its narrow frame profiles and large spans of fire-rated glazing separate the main building from a glass atrium that spans four floors, preserving daylight and views for occupants inside. The UL-classified system provides a barrier to radiant and conductive heat transfer, and incorporates Fireframes Designer Series doors for a complete entrance solution.
