Empire State Building Offers Sightseers a Clearer, Safer Viewing Experience with Fire-Rated Glass

The journey to the top of the Empire State Building is a critical part of the attraction’s famed sightseeing experience, and enhancing its Observatory presented both opportunity and challenge. To get to the 102nd floor, visitors ride in a custom glass elevator that offers 360-degree views of the city skyline upon arrival. Technical Glass Products’ (TGP) Fireframes® Curtainwall Series fire-rated frames and Pilkington Pyrostop® fire-rated glass form an interior elevator surround that preserves views while also providing fire resistance. The UL-classified fire-rated glass and framing system will block the transfer of flames, smoke and radiant and conductive heat for up to two hours, safeguarding the Observatory floor’s critical area of egress. TGP’s fire-rated frames offer narrow profiles and crisp sightlines that help preserve the building’s open layout and support code-driven design with custom wrapped corners and stainless-steel cladding.
