Pairing a sense of shared openness with critical fire resistance, the second-floor atrium of a retrofitted corporate tower in Bellevue, Washington, is enclosed by a sleek fire-rated, butt-glazed wall system. With large, clear lites of fire-rated glass, narrow butt-glazed joints and a heat-resistive perimeter frame, the Fireframes ClearView® System from Technical Glass Products provides a continuous glass wall aesthetic for the highly visible and frequently used location. Occupants traveling up or down the nearby stairwell can see into and out of the atrium, for greater synergy and vision. Fireframes® Heat Barrier Series fire-rated doors with transoms complete the design-forward system.
