Part 1: Safety Railing Installation
Part 2: Privacy Glass Installation
Bob meets with window installer Alan Chi of Finest Windows. Mr. Chi is installing the glass walls for the head house (the head house is the structure surrounding the stairs that lead up from the penthouse). Frosted thermal glass panels are being used for privacy, as the taller buildings surrounding the location can look down on the deck. The custom glass snaps into place, along with a rubber gasket, and silicone caulk in the corners prevents moisture from entering the enclosure. With the glass in place, a door rated for industrial use is installed.
