McLoone’s Rum Runner in Sea Bright, NJ has been a local favorite going back many decades. One famous regular, Bruce Springsteen, actually used the banquet room to rehearse for his “Tunnel of Love” tour. The location was running strong until the Superstorm Sandy destroyed the building. The Rum Runner used Panda’s folding glass doors and horizontal sliding walls to open again.
With help from numerous professionals, including Rumson architects Anderson and Campanella, The Martin Group Construction Company, Jana Manning Design, and Panda Windows and Doors the plans were finally drawn.
Panda Window and Doors’ part in this rebuild of McLoone’s Rum Runner was supplying the TS.60 Bi-Fold All Aluminum folding glass doors as well as the HSW.TS60 Horizontal Sliding Walls (HSW).
The HSW.TS60 Horizontal Sliding Wall System was designed and engineered to provide the highest level of quality and thermal performance. The thermally broken system provides increased strength, better acoustics, superior humidity control and energy savings. These qualities were extremely important to the Rum Runner application as New Jersey experiences extreme weather conditions including cold.
Panda’s Thermally broken Bi-Fold All Aluminum Folding Glass Doors are popular in bars and restaurants. This is because of their extremely durable construction and superior energy efficiency.
The thermal break technology used in the Panda’s Bi-Fold Doors separate the aluminum profile to reduce thermal conductivity. This is achieved by using a polyamide iso-bar, with glass fibers integrated to provide maximum strength. This technology is needed in a harsh weather environment such as New Jersey.
The TS.60 Bi-Fold All Aluminum folding glass door system and the HSW.TS60 Horizontal Sliding Wall System perfectly fit the imagination of the designers and architects working on the project. Now, Rum Runner stands as a testament to the resiliency of Sea Bright. The building is also a reflection of how perseverance plus imagination plus innovation will always equal success.
