The process of JEB’s product development varies each time; sometimes they create systems reflective of project specific requirements and other times their product releases reflect the current market trends in terms of cost or performance but for Brooklyn, it was about our passion for design.

JEB International set out to create a window and door system with horizontal transoms and vertical mullions to reflect the style of handmade steel or iron glazing frames seen in past generations. But, their team didn’t want to just replicate this, they wanted to recreate and improve the style to suit today’s construction methods and material availabilities.
Every detail of this system has been thoroughly thought, the systems starts with pronounced vertical elements that also create the structure for the door frame. These posts have a recessed front and back face, which is then continued through the floor and ceiling window profiles. The window profiles have a flat footing that extends the base area and provides the system with more detail and contours compared to your typical U channel systems.
Full height glass was used to suit the required acoustic ratings and glazing code requirements. The team then applied their JEB plant on transoms and mullions to the surface of the glass.
“The JEB industrial design team has gone to an extra length to ensure these mullions and transoms appear to be floating off the glass,” explains JEB.
The system is available in all of JEB’s standard anodized finishes along with their capability to match all powder coat colours.
