Yale and Princeton University Historic Buildings
One thing that Ivy League schools such as Yale and Princeton have in common is windows. This project is an example of how we were able to apply our years of experience, and further prove why we are considered the most capable storm window company in the industry. Although these schools are rivals, they share similar architectural styles. This project involves upgrading a number of buildings, which were a combination of old and new structures including dormitories, and historic lecture halls. In fact, Albert Einstein once taught in one these halls.
The original windows utilized steel frames and leaded glass. The schools needed a more modern storm window that would provide enhanced energy efficiency and security, while still maintaining a low profile and an unobtrusive appearance. Through an involved design process, we developed cutting edge products that utilized highly robust tempered glass with UV reduction features, custom color frames, and special panels that perfectly matched the original look. This was a complex project that included 12,000 storm windows, 8,000 special screens, and 3,600 box screens that can utilize a stainless steel security mesh. The design was custom to this application and fabricated completely in-house. Our modern facility is equipped with a wide range of fabrication systems, each operated by our staff of skilled professionals. This includes highly precise bending machines which allow for the fabrication of complex shapes. We also have the capability to apply controlled heat to facilitate tight precision bends.
