CHILDREN'S DENTAL CLINIC PARKING GARAGE - ANCHORAGE, ALASKA

Challenge:

Glass cladding system at the parking garage required colored glass types to meet the architects intent. Colored glass at the commercial level is 1/4" thick. To meet wind load we would need to laminate the colored glass to a ticker clear glass to make it stronger. This became prohibitive. 

SOLUTIONS:

Alaska Glazing designed a spine of sorts we could weld arms to at any location that grabbed the glass with a custom hand. This allowed us to use the 1/4" thick glass and simple place the arms as needed to meet the wind load. No two pines were the same because the floors are not level or parallel at most locations.
