Microsoft sought to upgrade their office windows and entrusted CitiQuiet to install new, premium fire-rated windows in their Flagship store located on Fifth Avenue in New York City. Microsoft’s New York office building is a registered historic building, built in 1930. To continue to preserve and update this building, Microsoft chose to invest in state-of-the-art fire safe windows for their top two office floors.
This past month, our CitiQuiet team installed premium fire rated windows for the Flagship store for the sixth and seventh floor. The project took around 3 weeks in total to install 11 very large windows that are custom-made to provide the greatest heat protection for the top two floors of the Microsoft office.
The fire-resistant windows at CitiQuiet are specially designed to withstand the spread of fire for up to 2 hours, or 120 minutes. These exceptional fire-resistant windows are custom-made from heat reflective glass material to reduce the amount of heat that can transfer. The windows are surrounded by a steel frame, which is of course the most fire-resistant material.
