Grabill was pleased to be part of the renovation of the historic St. Regis Hotel.  The elegant entrance that was specified for this historic manor included multiple sets of bronze wrapped Kalamein doors.  These doors were constructed of FSC certified mahogany substrate and simulated divided lite glass.  A medium bronze patina finish compliments the architecture of the era and completes the grand solarium entry.

Grabill Gives Back to the Local Community

Grabill has once again decided to adopt a local family in need this holiday season. Each year Grabill contacts the Lapeer County based Linked Hearts Food Bank, to find out how they can help. Both the staff and the officers have donated funds to purchase everything from linens and toiletries, to clothing and food.   Grabill also recently donated to the Almont Lions Club, Goodfellow Newspaper.  The funds from the sale of this paper help local families both during the holidays and throughout the year.

Contemporary corner operable window


Grabill worked closely with Anthony Moss Design on this project to develop this corner unit.  Dual operating sash with a clear opening was the design intent.  Grabill engineered this unit to include a flush bolt and latch for optimal security and energy efficiency.  Six windows like this will be manufactured for this project, all made of Sapele with aluminum clad exterior.  Unique to this project is the use of black painted Coraflon as the exterior finish.  Often when Grabill uses aluminum, the cladding is anodized.  This is just one of the many options available on these custom products. 


In total, Grabill will be manufacturing 35 custom windows and doors for this Lake Michigan home.  Also included in the project is a trackless countertop sliding window that allows a pass through from the kitchen to the outdoor space.  Grabill design possibilities are endless and we enjoy creating these exclusive units that make each project distinct.  As this project nears completion, more information will be posted.  For additional information on other Grabill products, please visit our website.
