In the Tulsa Central Library renovation, a narrow-profile, fire-rated glass and framing system from Technical Glass Products (TGP) helped preserve the building’s open layout by providing transparent compartmentation around the central staircase. The Fireframes® Aluminum Series from TGP allowed the team to surround the staircase with a barrier to radiant and conductive heat transfer and still allow for the desired aesthetic. The fire-rated system also surrounds complementary stairwells in the library and incorporates Fireframes® Designer Series fire-rated doors. The building is registered for LEED Gold certification.
