Contemporary Windows


 

Grabill's contemporary direct set windows are an important product for meeting the architect's design intent by maximizing glass area with considerable cost savings. Where an operable unit is not desired, our direct set massive window frames can support large expanses of glass.

Luxury corner windows and curtain window walls take advantage of grand views. Multiple fixed units of luxury windows can be integrated with operable windows and doors. Our fixed in frame windows allow for bent glass and butt glazing and are also available in all-wood or bronze clad.

Motorized windows are also available.

Clad

The Grabill contemporary aluminum clad product line has the best of both worlds: the strength and weather resistance of extruded aluminum to the exterior, and the warmth of handcrafted wood to the interior. Our heavy duty extruded aluminum cladding contains over 90% recycled material, is locally produced, and can be anodized or powder coated in virtually any color. We offer a powder-coated or anodized aluminum exterior finish and a painted or stained wood interior finish.

Wood

Wood species are project specified.   Multiple wood and split species available.   Grabill uses Smartwood FSC certified Mahogany and Eucalyptus and sustainable lumber when ever possible. Engineered Douglas Fir laminated cores are also FSC certified with low *VOC emissions. All of our lumber is kiln dried to a moisture content of 6-8% at the time of fabrication.

Finish

Powder Coating Environmentally friendly
An environmentally friendly finishing option, because almost no volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) are emitted during the curing process. Very durable and resistant to abrasion, chipping, cracking and peeling. Color selection is nearly unlimited. Note dark colors may have a tendency to fade over time.

Liquid Paint
Paint is available in a vast array of colors and types and can be made to meet the precise requirements of each unique project, may it be color or durability. Grabill uses Kynar 500® and Hylar 5000® which meets AAMA 2605 specification. The AAMA 2605 is a high performance specification made for organic coatings for architectural and heavy commercial applications.

Grabill is proud to partner with Linetec finishing products. As a member of the USGBC, Linetec supports green building finishing through ongoing research and environmentally friendly business practices. Anodize.

Anodizing
Offers a superior aesthetic finish and is an environmentally-friendly product using acid etch technology. We offer 5 standard anodized finishes and custom finishes as project requires.

Screen / Storm

Screen frames are fabricated from anodized aluminum or solid wood with various finish options.

Screen cloth is available in fiberglass, aluminum or bronze wire mesh.

Retractable Screen is a perfect option for standardized sizes. Screen slides into the natural recess of the door or window frame and virtually disappears when not in use. Screen hardware offers a smooth operation and when not in use the screens are protected from dirt, ultra violet light and inclement weather.

Storm windows are a great match for restoration projects using single glazed windows. Screen/storm inserts use the same frame and interchange the screens and storms. Storm windows are made to order for restoration or single glazed window applications.
