Originally Published:

Maine’s Cliff House Resort underwent a modern renovation that included aesthetics, safety and function, while reigning in captivating views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Challenge: 

After 140 years in operation, Cliff House Resort in York, Maine, closed to undergo a complete renovation. Designed by architectural firms Cooper Carry and TruexCullins, the resort reopened in July 2016. The result is a world-class retreat that offers rich historical character while reflecting a contemporary seaside lifestyle.

Influence: 

To enhance the aesthetics, safety and function of the resort, glass railing systems were provided.

Criteria: 

The system is designed to provide transparency and attractive all-glass visuals. It met code requirements, and has gone a step further by being the only guardrail system that is ICC-ES approved.

Solution: 

To preserve the inspiring oceanfront views while increasing safety for visitors, multiple areas of Cliff House Resort are lined with CRL’s GRS TAPER-LOC Glass Railing System.

A key feature of the GRS TAPER-LOC Glass Railing System is in its name. The patented TAPER-LOC dry glaze installation method reduces installation time by more than 50%. It also allows for easy adjustment or replacement of glass lites.

Exterior areas of Cliff House Resort are equipped with CRL’s P-Series Post Railing System. Posts are constructed from durable stainless steel, making the system ideal for the resort’s handrail and guardrail applications.
