Head of the class

As part of the historic renovation of Hawkins Hall, at State University of New York College in Plattsburgh, aging windows were replaced with HR175 windows in the 850-seat auditorium. To meet the building's National Park Service requirements, these custom-made windows were used because of their heavier bottom rail on the windows and muntins.

Between-the-glass blinds are pleated shades or real wood muntin bars that come in unlimited sizes and colors. The Slimshade blinds are tucked away between the glass, but without covering up the window's lines or interior. They increase energy efficiency and comfort.
