With its distinctive blue-tinted glass and stone, Azure’s sleek profile climbs 31 stories into the sky in Dallas’ Uptown district. The first luxury condominium development of its kind in Dallas, Azure is iconic in the area, promising low maintenance, long-term appeal and the ultimate in luxury. Homes ranging from 1,085 to 9,700 square feet offer open-plan interiors expanded by floor-to-ceiling glass and grand terraces with romantic outdoor fireplaces. Tying the deck coating used on the balcony into the window system required a transition that would ensure a continuous seal to prevent anything from marring the exquisite design and elegance of these upscale residences.
Establishing a waterproof tie-in between the silicone-based glazing system and the urethane deck coating used on the balcony was going to be a critical aspect of the job. To ensure a solution that would provide long-term compatibility and adhesion, products from a single supplier were preferred where formulation and testing had already been done for compatibility.
With the broad range of products offered by Tremco, technical local sales representatives in all major markets across the country, glazing specialists and design engineering resources, the solution was readily available. Tremco’s Spectrem 2 Structural Silicone Sealant was applied at all sill locations, jambs and head of the slider doors, combined with Vulkem 350/351 deck coating on the balconies and patios ensured a continuous weatherproof seal. Spectrem 3 Silicone Sealant also provided a solution to prevent staining of the building’s exclusive custom limestone panels.
