Two-hour curtain wall keeps fire out at new junior high school

The Prairie Hills Junior High School in Markham, Ill., is a brand new 200,000-sf school designed to accommodate more than a thousand students in the district. It features a glazed aluminum curtain wall from Safti First on the building’s south-facing elevation, selected by architect Arcon Associates, Lombard, Ill. Part of the wall had to meet a two-hour rating because it was adjacent to a two-hour block wall through the building’s interior. The framing system gives the building exterior fire-resistive applications and meets ASTM E-119/NFPA 251/UL263 requirements.
