A “ghostly” translucent, expansive channel glass rainscreen by Bendheim defines the upper levels of the recently constructed Fort York Visitor Center. The channel glass facade rises from the landscape and runs the entire length of the center as the back wall. It offers a robust layer of protection to the buildings’ structural walls, shielding them from wind & moisture. The project features our low-iron textured channel glass set in single-glazed SF-60S frames.
