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


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.


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


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.


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.
