Maintaining the Look of a Historical Landmark is Important - Especially for a Well-Known University Like Princeton.
Beyond their primary concern of safety, maintaining exterior aesthetics was a necessity for Princeton University's facilities personnel. Blair Hall, the university's first and largest dormitory, constructed in 1896 by architects Cope and Stewardson in "Tudor Gothic" style, needed to solve a common problem: securing student dorm rooms in a high traffic area while keeping with the historic look of the building.
Kane supplied (56) Level 5 Steel Narrowline security screens with 12-mesh, .028" diameter stainless steel wire cloth.
Due to our screens' ability to blend with existing building conditions, Princeton was able to remain on the National Register of Historical Places despite modifying the exterior with sturdy window protection.
