Steel Windows - Standard Type Residential

(for 'Steel Windows - Awning Type Residential' - Click Here)

Steel windows are universally praised for their incomparable strength, durability, and unparalleled aesthetic value.
Steel windows are always very popular and have many advantages over other types of windows. The main advantage to steel windows is that they are very strong. As a result, glass area can be maximized since window parts can be made extremely thin.
Steel windows form the face of a home and with their slim appearance they contribute charm, style and elegance.

Large Pane Windows:

Cottage Pane Windows:


Modern steel windows offer the same high level of aesthetic appeal as those produced in the past and are available as like-for-like replicas but with many significant advantages. As a result such windows have been successfully fitted into thousands of homes and apartments which, because they have been sympathetically restored, have had their value boosted.

With quality steel windows maintenance is not a worry because they are incredibly durable and have a long life. Galvanized windows are permanently sealed against corrosion, they will not rust and should last the life of your home, while polyester powder coated steel windows do not require redecoration for 15-20 years.

Steel windows are competitively priced and represent great value compared to the alternatives. The inherent strength of steel windows means that they provide more protection than any other window type against intruders and fire and are available with tried and tested locking systems.

Steel windows are durable, but not maintenance free; steel will rust if you don't keep paint on it.

Weather Performance
Long experience has demonstrated the suitability of steel windows for most sites and exposure conditions.

Security
The inherent strength of steel windows ensures maximum rigidity once the window frames have been installed and glazed.
The most secure steel window is a regular, standard window divided into small panes of glass, with vertical and horizontal bars tenon-riveted into the frame and with strong intersecting joints. Even if the glass is broken, entry cannot be made through this window.
A high measure of security can be achieved with large pane steel opening windows by a variety of locking methods, while a supplementary ventilator, mounted in the top glazing rebate will give permanent or controlled ventilation with locked window security.

Operation and Control
Steel window fittings available offer a comprehensive selection of casement handles and stays, folding openers, hinges, pivots, catches and bolts all designed to provide the optimum in performance and flexibility. Stringent quality control procedures, combined with modern manufacturing techniques, ensures that all products are of a consistently high standard.

Installation
Fixing:
Steel windows are suitable for fixing direct to brickwork, concrete, stone or into subframes.
Glazing:
Steel windows can be single glazed or fitted with insulating glass units.

Aftercare and Maintenance
The modern steel window is an extremely durable, high performance product. This performance can be enhanced if good maintenance practices are observed.
Frames should be cleaned at regular intervals, using a mild, non-alkaline detergent in warm water, applied with a soft cloth or sponge.
Glazing and perimeter sealants should be inspected on an annual basis and appropriate maintenance action taken. Galvanized steel windows, which are not factory finished with a polyester powder coating, are manufactured with clearances set to allow for up to three or four coats of paint on the meeting surfaces. When the repainting programme has exceeded this, strip the paint off all meeting surfaces prior to repainting.
All hinges, pivots, handles, stays and other mechanical parts should be checked for operation, kept free of excessive paint build up and lightly lubricated.
