CPS Returns to Kane Innovations for Window Protection on New District Offices, Following Decades of Success With Existing Kane Product.
ERIE, Pennsylvania – October 17, 2014 – Kane Innovations’ window protection brand, Kane Security: Screens by Kane, has been awarded a bid for the Garfield Park Office project by Christopher Glass and Aluminum, at the request of Chicago Public Schools (CPS).
The property, located at the former operating site of Mary Mapes Dodge Elementary Renaissance Academy on West Washington Boulevard in Chicago, is undergoing a complete renovation by the Chicago Public School System, with plans to repurpose the space as an administrative office for CPS district personnel.
Impressed by the longevity and resilience of the 117 Kane screens already protecting the window openings on the facility, CPS returned to the Pennsylvania manufacturer earlier this month with a call for an additional 21 Operable Steel Narrowline Security Screens. Previous orders include over 80 Operable Steel Narrowlines and nine Fixed Aluminum Narrowlines, each placed between 1996 and 1997. A third round of 25 Operable Steel Narrowline screens were purchased by CPS in the fall of 2003.
Kane Innovations has taken great pride in their longstanding partnership with the Chicago Public School System, completing work on over 500 individual schools within the major metropolitan K-12 district, since 1995.
