This year, SAFTI FIRST introduced its latest curtain wall system at the AIA Show in Chicago last June. The patent-pending, panelized SAFTI-EZ-ARC is designed for use in non-rated or rated applications.
SAFTI-EZ-ARC is the first USA-made, truly panelized, versatile structurally glazed curtain wall system. Two versions were developed to satisfy non-rated and fire-rated applications: SAFTI-EZ-ARC is a unique panelized system that will provide ease of installation in a curtain wall, while the SAFTI-EZ-ARC-FR is an ASTM E-119/UL 263 fire-resistive rated version recently successfully tested and listed by UL up to 2 hours. Additional testing is scheduled to meet hurricane, blast and tornado requirements.
The panelized non-rated and rated systems can be used alone or married together easily for seamless unbroken sight lines. This is a breakthrough product that provides architects, owners, and façade consultants with the greatest flexibility of design, while engineered as a panelized system to lower costs and provide ease of installation.
The SAFTI-EZ-ARC-FR panelized curtain wall provides the largest fire-rated glazed areas available. Each individual panel for rated areas is listed by UL at 130 inches high and 80 inches wide. For non-rated areas, the sizes are even larger.
Zebrano Wood Grain Designs have been added to GGI's Alice Direct to Glass Ready-to-Print collection, offering architects and designers a superior alternative to natural wood. Zebrano Expresso, Macchiato, Chocolate, and Mocachino provide the aesthetic of natural wood but without the sanding, straining and ongoing maintenance required. The ceramic frit application makes it ideal for interior or exterior applications. The scale, color and opacity can be customized for a one-of-a-kind finish on an ultra-clear low iron glass or low iron satin etched substrate for an easy to clean, durable surface material.
