St. Cloud Window, a second-generation women-owned business founded in 1952, was the company that completed this monumental task. A leading designer and manufacturer in aluminum windows and door products for more than 60 years, St. Cloud created six inches of space between insulating and attenuating glass to ensure maximum comfort for hotel guests.
