The frameless glass railing system installed at 2727 Kirby Drive, a 30-story luxury condominium tower block in Houston, Texas. 143 balconies

The frameless glass railing system that now covers all 143 balconies of the 30-storey luxury condominium tower at 2727 Kirby Drive in Houston, Texas, is another outstanding demonstration of the qualities and capabilities of DuPont™ SentryGlas ® , specified by CDC Curtainwall Design Corp. and C.R. Laurence Co. (CRL), leading global manufacturer and supplier to the glazing, architectural, railing, construction, industrial and automotive industries.

SentryGlas® was chosen because it is safer and stronger than alternative laminates and offers exceptional transparency, allowing residents to get virtually crystal clear, unobstructed views from their balconies.
