CHICAGO, IL, February 14, 2020 –Crystal Window & Door Systems’ Chicago production facility is providing beautiful views for the newly constructed senior residence Cedarbrook of Rochester with 1,341 new Crystal commercial aluminum windows and terrace doors. The new independent, assisted, and memory care facility is located in Rochester, MI, just north of Detroit.

“Crystal’s products are well suited for the large and growing senior housing market across the country,” said Scott Anderson, Crystal sales executive and project manager for Cedarbrook.  “Our windows and doors offer ease of operation, quality hardware, ADA compliance options, and high thermal energy efficiency, all combined into thoughtful design for the comfort of senior residents.”

Crystal teamed up with DeYonker Window & Door of Rochester, MI, to supply the project on the tight construction schedule.  “Crystal has worked on many past projects with DeYonker’s project manager Jesse Adler, who knows our broad product line and production capabilities,” said Anderson.  “To speed shipments and reduce transportation costs for this project, we manufactured most of the products at Crystal’s Chicago facility. Papo Perez, Crystal’s Ohio Branch Manager, also assisted with the project.  So, you can see Crystal’s vast national network of facilities and staff is definitely advantageous for owners, architects, and GCs.”

The Cedarbrook of Rochester project used an assortment of the Crystal 3-¼” jamb, ⅞” insulated glass pocket aluminum 2000 Series operating and fixed windows.  Most of the 2000 Series windows were installed in the building openings in large combined assemblies using mullions and continuous head and sill master frames.  The most prevalent was the Series 2100Aluminum Fixed Picture Window, of which 752 were ordered.  The AAMA rated CW-PG65/PG-50 Crystal 2100 Fixed Picture Windows were specified in single, 2-lite, and 3-light equal and unequal configurations in both horizontal and vertical orientations.  With spans up to 108” in height or width, these windows, especially when combined with other windows, provided aesthetic appeal to the façade and great views for the residents.

The project also called for 233 of Crystal’s tilt-in sash Series 2000A Aluminum Double-Hung Window in both single and twin configurations, some as large as 108” wide by 80” tall.  Adding visual interest, all of the 2000A Double-Hung Windows were specified in an unequal sash “cottage-style” configuration.  To aid in operation, larger heavier sashes were equipped with Ultra-Lift balances, which is especially important for a senior residence.
