Historical Replica Windows


Our historically accurate “Preservation Series” of windows meet and exceed conserver standards while offering increased energy savings and qualifying for LEED® points. Grabill replicates Traditional Double Hung, weight and pulley windows to the finest detail. Including narrow muntin bars, custom profiles, restoration glass, art glass and replica hardware.

Our pivot window is a recreation of architectural history. We engineered and recast original 1920's brass lever-actuated hardware that offers improved function and additional weight of "high performance" glass.

Glass

Glass can be triple glazed, dual low E, reflective, obscured, ultra white, self cleaning, tempered or as specified. Sound reduction, high wind, avalanche, and security glazing are all options. We also use the latest technology for our insulated glass spacer bars to ensure minimal heat transfer and dramatically reduce condensation.

Products are NFRC tested and certified to meet the most stringent energy standards.

Grabill is a leader in supplying monumental glass for residential and light commercial projects. Premium glass up to 80 square feet. Larger sizes per project requirement.


Hardware

Grabill premium hardware features stainless steel and architectural bronze levers and trims with specified finish options including satin nickel and oil rubbed bronze.
Architectural hardware selections include Hoppe, Bronze Craft, FFI or as specified. Our use of stainless steel components offers high resistance to corrosion even in coastal environments.

All our hardware carries a lifetime warranty.

Finish

Wood finishes can be shop primed, painted, or stained to your specifications with samples provided for final approval. Custom rustic aged, bleached, or antique finishes are also an option.

Grabill uses low *VOC emission paint products, when ever possible, which contain little or no toxins that pollute indoor air, and are water or latex based to decrease hazardous fumes and waste.



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.
