Saint Ephrems School Entryway (Brooklyn, NY)


Custom  Storefront

929 7th Street
Brooklyn, New York City


WindowFix, a dedicated provider of renovation services, recently undertook a transformative project to revitalize the main entrance of a church school in Brooklyn. The initiative aimed to modernize and enhance both the functionality and aesthetics of the entrance, with a strong focus on safety and energy efficiency.

The project commenced with the removal of outdated doors dating back to the 1960s, symbolizing a commitment to embracing contemporary design and improving the overall entrance experience. The cornerstone of the renovation was the meticulous redesign of the entrance, featuring the installation of a custom aluminum Gamco storefront.

The choice of materials was strategic, reflecting not only a modern aesthetic but also a commitment to durability and longevity. The custom aluminum Gamco storefront not only contributes to a contemporary look but also promises resilience, ensuring the new entrance will withstand the test of time.

A key highlight of the renovation was the installation of a set of double doors, accompanied by sidelites. Beyond their aesthetic appeal, these elements were carefully chosen and prepared to elevate security and performance standards. Electric release mechanisms were incorporated for efficient access control, adding a layer of convenience and modernity.

The integration of safety glass was a crucial step in enhancing overall security. This specialized glass is designed to withstand impact, minimizing the risk of breakage and ensuring a secure environment within the school. Attention to detail extended to the hinges, where piano hinges were employed to contribute to the robustness and longevity of the doors.

In addition to these security features, heavy-duty door closers were implemented to further enhance the functionality of the entrance. These closers ensure a controlled and secure closing of the doors, preventing unnecessary wear and tear while maintaining a professional and polished appearance.

The commitment to these finer details exemplifies WindowFix’s dedication to delivering not only a visually appealing entrance but also one that operates seamlessly and meets the highest standards of safety and performance.

The result of this comprehensive effort is a thoroughly modernized entrance that aligns with contemporary safety and energy performance standards. The custom aluminum Gamco storefront, combined with the carefully designed double doors and sidelites, has transformed the entrance into a welcoming and secure space.

The incorporation of advanced features, such as electric release mechanisms, safety glass, piano hinges, and heavy-duty door closers, ensures that the entrance not only meets but exceeds the expectations of modern design and functionality.

Beyond the visible improvements, the renovation serves as a testament to WindowFix’s commitment to excellence. By addressing both aesthetic and functional aspects, the project not only revitalized the entrance of the church school but also contributed to creating a safer and more energy-efficient environment.

The success of this project underscores WindowFix’s expertise in delivering comprehensive renovation solutions tailored to the unique needs of each client. It is a testament to the company’s commitment to excellence in every aspect of their work, showcasing their ability to seamlessly blend modern design, security, and energy efficiency in a holistic renovation project.
