Preferred Utilities Manufacturing Corporation - glazing replacement
After 60+ years the frosted exterior glazing of the Preferred Utilities office and manufacturing facility needed to be replaced. The intent was to enhance security and update the exterior of the building.
Presented with new glazing options the head of maintenance was concerned with selecting a polycarbonate sheet product for the replacement due to the misconception of scratching. Upon discovering Makrolon 15 polycarbonate sheet would provide high daylighting, abrasion resistance, and vandalism protection it was selected to re-glaze the exterior facade of the building.
