Safti First Receives Government Contract to Supply Government and Service Agencies
Safti First received a five-year U.S. General Services Administration Federal Supply Schedule 56 Contract. The GSA Schedule 56 section covers buildings and building materials. Safti First will now participate as a supplier in glazing, doors, windows and walls, and order-level materials.
“We were very excited to offer our favorable pricing and terms to the federal government through our new GSA contract,” says William O’Keeffe, president/CEO of Safti First and U.S. veteran. “We will aim to provide the newest, technologically advanced and the least expensive products to renovate their facilities or to replace the old and proven dangerous wired glass in fire rated doors, windows, and any application requiring a safe, code-approved, economical, wireless, tint-free glazing product. Or for new construction projects that require advanced fire resistive glazing systems up to two hours. We look forward to the opportunity to supply our USA-made, advanced fire rated glass, framing and door systems to the government sector and our wonderful USA Services with U.S.-made fire rated products.”
Safti First’s products have been used extensively in federal projects with special requirements such as the Orlando VA Medical Center in Orlando; James A. Haley VA Primary Hospital Primary Care Annex in Tampa, Florida; Bachelor Enlisted Quarters at Camp Pendleton in San Diego; United States Central Command Headquarters at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa; United States Federal Courthouse in Austin, Texas; United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.; Library of Congress National A/V Conservation Center in Culpepper, Virginia; Army Hospital in Southern California; Center for Disease Control and Prevention Building in Atlanta; FBI Building in Tampa; and the FDA Building in New York.
“We now have the opportunity to focus on the supply side of the government purchase as we continue to provide our advanced rated products to the construction side. Safti First's advanced fire-rated glazing products can be provided to protect against hurricane, blast, ballistic, forced entry and attack, making them the ideal solution for many government and commercial high-profile buildings needing these special features. The GSA is leading the charge in energy efficient office buildings and our products can be suited to meet any combination of performance glazing required for energy efficiency, thereby improving the building’s overall performance and enhancing occupant comfort,” says O’Keeffe.
