Historic Charleston Jasper Project

Historic Charleston Jasper Project

Situated in the heart of historic Charleston, SC, “The Jasper” a 12-story 219-unit multifamily housing and commercial complex at the former Sergeant Jasper site is getting outfitted with Graham windows as it is nearing completion.

The new buildings, called The Jasper, contain over 1,160 hurricane impact resistant Graham windows and doors. Graham series HI1400 offset fixed windows make up the majority of the project along with Series HI7400 doors. The offset fixed HI1400 windows give the appearance of hung windows but provide the thermal efficiency of a fixed window since there is no operating sash. High performance low-e glass coupled with hurricane resistant glazing was used in all windows and doors to provide hurricane protection to the buildings occupants. Custom unitized receptors were also used to install the windows into the openings saving time and resources.

To find out more about the Graham window and door products used on this project, contact Jim Eisenbeis, Graham’s Director of Marketing.
