1 Shaftsbury Avenue, Toronto Ontario
This project, consisting of a 6-story apartment building and 60 town homes, backs onto a railway on the south, Yonge Street to the west and the subway runs through a tunnel under the structure. This high noise location presented an enormous challenge for the projects architects and engineers, as the S.T.C (Sound Transmission Coefficency) ratings had to be extremely high in order to meet the city`s requirements. The Fibertec team came up with innovative ways to deaden the road and rail noise using a unique and innovative combination of glass, thermal spacers and low conductivity gas. These were installed in our highly thermally efficient fiberglass frames.
