In renovating Trumbull High School's auditorium, the challenge for JCJ Architecture was to find a curtain wall framing system with thin profiles, a smooth glass-to-frame surface and the ability to support oversized glazed lites that would blend with the auditorium’s neighboring buildings. The firm chose the SteelBuilt Curtainwall™ SSG System from Technical Glass Products. The steel curtain wall framing system is typically three times stronger than aluminum assemblies of the same profile dimension, allowing for reduced frame dimensions and greater free spans of glazing. Silicone sealant is used to seal the building from the elements and transfer wind loads to the supporting steel curtain wall. The result is smooth and uninterrupted glazed lites, which provide clear lines of sight into and out of the auditorium.
