  • Canton-Massillon, OH (1888PressRelease) March 30, 2018 - The project at the Sixth and I Historic Synagogue involves building secondary polycarbonate glass window systems and attaching them to the inside of each of the synagogueís stained and other ornamental windows. This process was developed by the companyís engineers after it was learned the historic nature of the 110-year-old building prevented the usual attachment of security film to the windows.

    The project is being funded by a Department of Homeland security grant as incidents of sabotage against synagogues in the U.S. have increased in recent years.

    Commercial Window Shield was recommended for the project by officials at the building management company Jones Lang LaSalle who had worked with the company on previous projects and knew they could handle the complex assignment. Previously, Commercial Window Shield completed similar challenging projects at the historic Grand Central Terminal in New York City and Bowen Building in Washington.

    The synagogue project began yesterday and will be completed on time in several weeks.
    The synagogue first opened as the Adas Israel Congregation in 1908. It later became a Methodist church for nearly 50 years before being bought by three developers in 2004. They renovated the building, returning it to a synagogue.

    Commercial Window Shield is one of the countryís largest installers of security and solar control window films. Its work can be found in the U.S. Capitol, all House of Representative and Library of Congress buildings, FBI headquarters, the Philadelphia and Denver mints, Merrill Lynch headquarters, the Willis [former Sears] Tower and OíHare International Airport.
