The Indigo Garden District Hotel, which has been closed since 2008 after the economic devastation of Hurricane Katrina will be installing the Thermolite Window System to mitigate noise and prevent its windows from being destroyed by hurricane winds.
The Thermolite Window System installation will begin in June 2012 and will be installed on the inside of the hotel as a supplement to its existing windows to help fortify the building from damage caused by window breakage and implosion as a result of hurricane winds.
“Hotel management was looking for a way to reduce noise transmission from room to room and also to protect the building--but want to make sure that any work didn’t change the architectural look and feel of the hotel,” stated Therm-O-Lite Inc. President Steve Champlin. “The Thermolite Window System is a great fit for the hotel because we are able to reduce the noise levels, provide piece of mind, reduce their energy consumption and the system won't change the look of the windows.”
Hurricane winds can cause significant damage to hotels and other buildings when the windows are compromised. When the windows have imploded and broken, the air pressure in the building changes and can cause structural collapse and significant damage to the building--including causing the roof to lift off--and can be deadly to building occupants.
