Securistyle open up the New York City Skyline

Securistyle has specified and installed its Rushmore hinge system to two new high-end residential developments in New York, contributing to redevelopment and regeneration in the city.

 

The first project consists of two towers situated at 76 Eleventh Avenue, Manhattan. Totaling 26 and 36 floors high, once complete the residential blocks will be the tallest buildings in West Chelsea, housing 87 luxury residences and a five-star hotel. The tower’s twisting silhouette design and huge glass façade allows for 360-degree views of the surrounding skyline and waterfront.

The second is a £350 million project at 420 Kent Avenue in Brooklyn. Here, three luxury glass-clad towers are being constructed and will house 857 apartments. These have been designed to cater for the younger demographic commuting into the city. The development will provide modern accommodation and is the latest addition to Brooklyn’s waterfront in Williamsburg.

Securistyle’s Rushmore hinge system has been installed on both large glass façades to provide natural ventilation and deliver panoramic views across the city. The hinge allows for fewer broken sightlines and compliments the overall buildings design.

Jim Bernard, CEO of manufacturer Bronze Craft who specified Securistyle on the projects, commented: “The Securistyle team are always on hand to provide a detailed technical specification for projects. The windows are an incredibly important part of both the New York developments due to the huge glass curtain walling systems. As a result, we chose the Rushmore system as it’s been specifically designed to facilitate large, heavy openings.

“We always have the utmost faith in the performance of the products and know that the Securistyle team will deliver the solution required quickly.”

The Rushmore systems unique modular design allows vents to be balanced for equal opening and closing forces or to be self-opening or self-closing. It is constructed in robust Austenitic 304 grade stainless steel for quality that’s built to last and is fully supported by a 12-year guarantee.

Richard Gurmin, Head of Commercial Business Development for Securistyle, said: “The developments taking place in New York have incredible architectural designs and we’re excited to have played a part in their construction. Thanks to having hardware that is certified for use by the City of New York Department of Health’s Window Falls Prevention Program, we are able to specify a compliant product that offers a superior solution.”

While the first tower in the Brooklyn development is due for completion in July 2018, the other buildings in the project and the Eleventh Avenue development in Manhattan are scheduled for completion in 2019.
