Glazing offers a fire- and hurricane-rated solution for America’s veterans
The new Orlando VA Medical Center needed glazing that would not only provide light and transparency, but fire and hurricane protection and improved energy performance.
The new Orlando VA Medical Center needed glazing that would not only provide light and transparency, but fire and hurricane protection and improved energy performance. SuperLite II-XL in SAFTIfire Hurricane Framing from SAFTI FIRST was installed in exterior fire-rated locations that were exposed to the elements. These assemblies were rigorously tested and certified for fire and radiant heat protection for up to two hours, large missile impact, air and water infiltration, and cyclic wind loading. The assemblies also have a 0.29 U-value and a 0.23 SHGC. SuperLite II-XL in SAFTIfire GPX Framing were also used in the interior, providing transparency in several one- and two-hour fire-rated locations, ensuring that natural light penetrates further in the building.
