School District Applauds SAFTI FIRST
Scott Gilliland, director of facilities and operations for the
Bethlehem, Pa., School District, has clarified the involvement of
San Diego-based SAFTI FIRST in the school's recent renovation.
"On November 21, 2007, a local newspaper in Allentown, Pa. (The
Morning Call) published a brief article about the renovations at
Freedom High School in the Bethlehem Area School District. (CLICK

a number of mistakes and misstatements about the fire-rated glass
and framing system manufactured by SAFTI FIRST," Gilliland says.
"Contrary to what the news article claims, SAFTI FIRST was never
a party to any lawsuit. In fact, representatives of SAFTI FIRST
and Lawton Architectural Products have worked tirelessly with the
school district and its project engineers at D'Huy Engineering to
provide a remarkable example of cutting edge, fire-rated glass technology.
Their collaborative efforts have assured that the finished system
will meet or exceed the school district's expectations, and all
concerned are to be applauded."
