World Trade Center Transportation Hub
At the iconic One World Trade Center, more than 15,500 square meters (166,000 square feet) of CS Storm-Resistant Fixed Horizontal Louvers (RSH-5700) built from 429 tons of aluminum span its topmost floors to provide Class-A wind-driven rain resistance while blending seamlessly into its stunning glass curtain wall. A stone’s throw away, at the state-of-the-art World Trade Center Transportation Hub (aka, “The Oculus”), CS Blast Resistant Horizontal Louvers (BLH-5709) assist with airflow while providing blast resistance at the base of the structure’s “ribs.”
The visually poignant 75,000 square meter (800,000 square foot) hub, completed in 2016, serves 250,000 commuters daily and is the third largest transportation center in New York City. Ultimately, the facility will connect guests to 11 subway lines and World Trade Center Towers 1, 2, 3 and 4.
