waterfront and LaGuardia Airport across Flushing Bay. The Allura complex is U- shaped, with two parallel wings that protrude towards the water, and most of the units have full length glass railed balconies. Crystal windows and doors were combined in horizontally ganged and verti- cally stacked configurations to provide most of the apartments’ floor-to-ceiling glass façade elements. The majority of the window products supplied were the Crystal architectural Series 8500 Aluminum Outswing Casement and Series 8510 Alu- minum Fixed Picture windows. Over 700 of these windows were

used, predominantly in 2-, 4-, or 6-window configurations in sizes up to 84” wide by 96” tall. In some instances, operating casements and fixed sashes were combined in dual panel master frames. The Crystal Series 8500 Casement with 2-⅝” frame has an outstanding AW-PG100 rating, dual-arm operator, and double row bulb weather- stripping. For this project, the casements were specified with a beautiful satin chrome oper- ating handle and 4” sash open- ing limit devices. The Crystal Series 8510 Fixed Picture also has a 2-⅝” frame depth and is AW-PG85 rated. To provide building resi- dents access to the extensive balconies, over 120 heavy- commercial Crystal Series 1280 Aluminum Sliding Patio Doors were installed. The 2-panel sliding doors were fabricated in large sizes up to 72” wide by 96” tall. In some instances, the Se- ries 1280 doors were combined with two sidelight windows to span floor-to-ceiling openings 96” wide by 96” tall. The Series 1280 has a strong frame depth of 4-9⁄16”, an AAMA AW-PG50 rating, adjustable dual-tan- dem, stainless steel ball bear- ing rollers, and a heavy-duty latch handle.
