Over the past ten years, curtain walls have become a standard for modern buildings all over the world. Often encompassing a floor-to-ceiling installation of glass, they create a striking environment not just in commercial buildings but in an increasing number of private homes. Curtain walls can be as low as one story or as tall as the Freedom Tower, and we at WindowFix can source, install and maintain curtain walls from manufacturers across the globe, such as Façade 41, a premier importer and manufacturer in Europe and Asia, to homegrown applications made here in the USA by Alpen HPP.
Self-closing, steel fire rated windows and doors, ranging from 45 to 90 minutes. Optimum’s Fire Rated Windows are put through rigorous testing. Initially a “heat test” is performed, where the window is exposed to temperatures up to 1600 degrees Fahrenheit. Fire Rated Windows also endure the “Hose Stream Test”, in which the glass holds fast even during this extreme change in temperature. When other windows made from materials such as aluminum, vinyl and wood are placed under these extreme conditions; they will poorly react in a Thermal Shock. Optimum Fire Rated windows will hold their integrity.
Fire rated products address NYC Fire Code Regulations, often required in Lot Line situations to prevent the spread of fire: See NYC Fire Code Regulations
