VIVA Railings was tasked to design and engineer a complete custom glass windwall wind barrier system at the amenity deck level for the new Hi-Line residential building in Dallas downtown (overlooking the American Airlines Center).
VIVA Railings presents various WINDWALL™ solutions using our current range of railing designs. Windwalls are typically used at amenity deck levels in high rise residential projects or by poolside. These applications require custom engineering solutions and hence every windwall design is project specific and depends on floor elevation, wind loads, layout and location of the building
Engineering the system was a challenge with high wind loads, given the structure available to mount to was deep below the built-up deck. Working with our in-house engineering and team, we designed the system using the VIVA SHOE custom glass system base mounted via chemical anchors and custom stainless steel spiders. The result is a beautiful wind barrier giving a full view of the beautiful Dallas downtown behind the buzzing interstate I-35E. With the talents of Rogers O’ Brien and Gromatzky Dupree & Associates HiLine Dallas has become a beautiful addition to the Dallas skyline.
