Assured protection

Assured passive fire protection for a spectacular central atrium in Dublin city centre’s largest and most prestigious new commercial development has been provided by over 300m2 of Promat Systemglas Ferro.

The fire resistant Systemglas Ferro glazing system has been used to create all the glass screens which encapsulate the atrium at the heart of No. 1 Dublin Landings. Part of Ballymore and Oxley’s scheme with an investment value of 700 million euros, this is the key office building within the one million square foot mixed use joint development on North Wall Quay on the banks of the River Liffey.

The central atrium rises through the Arrow/RKD Architects-designed building, with each level featuring Systemglas Ferro as a floor to ceiling glazed screen, delivering a balance of aesthetics, strength and fire safety, the company said.

The system ensures that maximum natural daylight can be provided into the office space on each level, while providing assured fire protection with integrity and insulation (EI) for 30 minutes and the ability to withstand an impact load of up to a 1.5kN.
