High Impact Glass Solutions Finishes Three Month Project
Since its inception in 1913, Temple Beth Sholom’s congregation in Sarasota has grown from 20 families to exceed 750 families. To meet the needs of increasing membership, expansion has been ongoing throughout the years. Today, the Temple is comprised of three buildings that house the Sanctuary, Religious School, Day School, Complete Judaica Shop, Judaica Museum and Library…plus multiple offices for very special people with very special jobs.
The windows at Temple Beth Sholom needed storm protection and less sun penetration for energy efficiency. We set out to fulfill these needs with the same process we apply to evaluate window tinting Tampa‘s churches and synagogues.
A thorough inspection uncovered unique areas with critical needs. As part of my final evaluation, I requested that an unbiased certified engineering consultant review my findings and recommendations. In doing so, Carotti Engineering, LLC of Bradenton made routine inspections and issued a detailed report supporting my recommendations.
Note: Along with the application of window films, High Impact Glass Solutions provided additional energy efficiency by sealing the perimeters of doors and windows where damage from air and water intrusion were detected. Collectively, our steps taken to perfect every application resulted in substantial discounted insurance rates for Beth Shalom.
- Certain specialty glass areas were recommended for alternative impact protection. These recommendations were significant to the overall success of the project.
- Dow Corning 995 Structural Silicone Sealant was used for the “wet glaze attachment systems”. Due to excessive deterioration, additional steps were taken in many areas to meet manufacturer specifications.
Personally and professionally, it was an honor to make such significant improvements for the Beth Sholom “family”!
