With its classic brick exterior and beautifully arched doorways, Trinity Baptist Church has been a mainstay in New Haven, Connecticut’s downtown community since the 1970s. During its latest renovation, Patriquin Architects selected Technical Glass Products’ (TGP) Fireframes® Heat Barrier Series frames to preserve the church lobby’s arched entryway while complying with code requirements for fire resistance. To mirror the church’s non-rated architectural features and maintain the church’s charming aesthetic, the fire-resistive-rated frames’ narrow steel profiles were custom roll-formed to fit the existing shaped conditions within the building. The frames were also factory powder coated to match the color of true timber seen on surrounding windows, doors and historic molding.
