“A ton of problem-solving went into the glazing systems for the suites,” Sports Facilities Engineer, Franklin, Ind.
To waterproof the private suites from the sometimes severe weather that blows in from Lake Michigan, a Kawneer engineer designed a custom version of the 1040 Sliding Mall Front with a two-piece “U-shaped” sill receptor to keep rain out. More than 130 of these Sliding Mall Fronts were installed.
For the much larger press box that rounds the curve at home plate, the track system was customized with added diverters to accommodate the slight curve.
