Window Project Utilizes Firm’s Anchoring System

New York – CINTEC North America announced that its anchors were used as the anchoring system for the replacement windows at the PS-41 School in the Bronx. P.S. 41 is a co-educational public school for grades 1-5. Its mission is to “nurture and serve every child to be productive citizens while reaching their highest potential.”

The original windows in the building needed to be replaced. It was discovered that backup for the proposed face brick was speed tile, and there was concern about an effective anchor that was still sympathetic to the fragility of the speed tile units.

Cintec was originally specified by Sen Architects as the anchoring system for the replacement windows. Sen architects had specified Cintec in the past for similar school projects. However, a resin anchor was considered, tested, and failed. Cintec anchors (fire rating exceeds ATME 119) were tested, and consequently, used to complete the  project. A total of 1000 anchors were used.
