Janssen Glass & Door Helps Design New Overland Park Development

Commercial Glass Project Janssen GlassJanssen Glass & Door is proud to be a part of the PririeFire development at 135th and Nall in Overland Park. It’s a lively and varied development that houses lots of activities and attractions for all ages. Janssen Glass & Door had the amazing opportunity to help develop commercial glass structures for several different attractions which are now open and ready for the public.

Museum at Prairiefire

One of the big draws to the Prairiefire development for families is the Museum. It’s home to renowned exhibitions and authentic artifacts from the American Museum of Natural History, one of the most celebrated museums in the world. Janssen Glass & Door created the showcases for fossils and other artifacts that are shown here. We used anti-reflective, low iron glass. This gives the glass a green tint. We also had to air-seal the showcases to keep the humidity levels stable. The artifacts inside need to be kept away from damaging factors, such as humidity, harsh light, and human touch. We took these precautions because the display had to meet the requirements set by artifact museums to host the best high attraction artifacts and exhibits.

Cinetopia & Pinstripes

Janssen Glass & Door also had the opportunity to work closely with two other attractions in the Prairiefire development. We installed nearly all of the glass inside the upscale modern movie theater, Cinetopia. We even made the glowball lighting pieces over each entrance in the theater. We also installed much of the glass inside Pinstripes, an upscale gaming and bistro event space. There, you can play games like bocce ball and bowling while eating a bistro-inspired menu.
