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 massive window frames can support large expanses of glass.This design flexibility allows the designer to take advantage of grand views and incorporate multiple units integrated with operable windows and doors. Our fixed in frame windows allow for bent glass and butt glazing and are also available in bronze or aluminum clad.

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. Grabill is pleased to include GORETM inLightenTM a window screen made with an ultra-fine material that makes it appear virtually invisible, bringing the outside in with a clearer view, better light and better ventilation.
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 quite 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.
|Grabill products are fabricated according to individual specifications and in an infinite range of designs and sizes. We offer our experienced technical assistance in the initial phases of projects regarding design, specifications, applications and construction.|
