Our TB50 SG curtain wall system was expertly installed on this project by Season Master Double Glazing. This structurally glazed curtain wall system secures the glass by means of specially designed and tested toggles that are integral to the central seal of the double-glazed units. Silicone sealed, weather-resistant joints produce a flush, noninterrupted finish.

Our structurally glazed concealed frame awnings were installed to add ventilation to the internal environment of the building. They fit seamlessly into our TB50 SG curtain wall system, providing a streamlined, aesthetically pleasing finish.

For extra support to the curtain wall, 23 ft. high glass fins were bonded to a 3” wide bespoke aluminum mullion with a structurally clamped and sealed glass face, see image below.
