The GPX FireFloor System  
was tested with a load of 100 psf to meet most loading requirements and is  
available with load spans up to 50 feet. Additional engineering can be done  
for longer spans. The GPX FireFloor System can be used in both interior and  
exterior applications with multiple glass make-ups and frame finishes.  
The single glass unit comprises custom SuperLite II-XL combined with a tem-  
pered laminated non-slip walking surface and a fire-resistive rated structural  
steel framing grid. The framing grid is shipped pre-fabricated and in sections  
for easy field installation. The design allows the installer to set the structural  
frame and load each glass panel from the top.

TGI on the Big Screen  
Technoform Glass Insula-  
tion (TGI) has developed a  
customized, warm-edge TGI-  
Spacer system for ScreenLine  
integrated blind systems by  
Intigral. The ScreenLine blind  
moves within a completely  
sealed environment without  
affecting the hermetic prop-  
erties of the insulating glass  
unit.  
TGI’s portfolio of hybrid  
spacer systems incorporate  
a high-performance polymer  
and low-conductivity stain-  
less steel to maximize protec-  
tion against gas leakage and  
moisture penetration, and minimize heat transfer at the edge of glass. According to the company, thermal calculations  
show that by using TGI-Spacer in the ScreenLine system, U-Factor values are improved by 12 percent and interior sur-  
face temperatures increase by 14 degrees Fahrenheit over standard aluminum spacers.  
Also new from TGI is the TGI-Spacer M with Wire, made to improve the overall thermal and structural performance,  
reduce the risk of condensation, and enhance the appearance of window systems for commercial, industrial and  
residential building applications. The optimized profile geometry and increased rigidity provides durability and easier  
handling during fabrication, according to the company.
