Bendheim’s channel glass brings privacy, daylight, and elegance to the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge Westchester Landing in Tarrytown, N.Y. The double-glazed, tempered channel glass encloses the Welcome Center. The textured glass, together with insulation inserts and a sandblast treatment, was specified for optimal privacy and its ability to transform the structure into a beacon to visitors of the pedestrian park. The translucent channel glass facade provides the high level of privacy required, while bringing diffused daylight in.
It is also the first project in North America to include Bendheim’s channel glass as a canopy. Bendheim supplied its single-glazed channel glass system for the overhead installation, in tempered-laminated safety form to meet building codes.
