Classic Steel Framed Windows

28th April 2016

Steel framed windows have been around for decades, but there has been a distinct surge in their popularity, given the variety of designs and colours that are now available owing to better manufacturing and technological advances. Aesthetically pleasing design, higher thermal performances and low maintenance makes them a popular product.

The Advantages Of Steel Framed Windows and Doors

The reason why steel framed windows and doors are suitable for both commercial or residential projects:

  • Steel frames are very durable and strong with the capability of holding large sheets of glazing.
  • Steel framed windows can be designed from the traditional ‘loft style’ to contemporary modern styles enabling a true bespoke design matching the specific requirements and desires.
  • The steel framed window and doors can be made from any of the four metals; Galvanised Steel Windows that can be powder coated any RAL colour, Stainless Steel Windows that can be polished or Scotch-Brite to suit, true Corten TM Steel Windows or elegant Architectural Bronze Windows.
  • Steel is extremely weather resistant
  • Very little maintenance is required

Steel framed windows first became popular in the mind-18th century because of the security it offered to homes and schools. The industrial revolution meant steel was more widely available and used in more domestic settings reflecting the art deco era’s on minimal design.

With the rise in renovations and home improvements steel windows are making a comeback in warehouse conversions and loft-style living. Innovations and technology advances means frames can be thinner than ever before, offering a cleaner, more contemporary look than wood alternatives.

Steel windows are incredibly low maintenance and long lasting, and because frames are so slim, natural light can still be maximised.

If you’re looking to add more design to your home then IQ Metals’ Jansen Arte System could be the perfect solution. The bespoke steel windows and doors are designed and fabricated in the style of industrial steel frames however the slim sightlines and thermal performances gives this solution an advantage.
