Innovations in steel window fabrication 

IQ Metal UK were recently featured in the May/June issue of The Listed Property Owners Club magazine with an article exploring the latest innovations in steel window fabrication.


Steel windows can be dated back to the medieval period with local blacksmiths creating bespoke windows from wrought iron. However, today’s technological advances and the research into cold rolled steel profiles now allow for the creation of fully thermally broken steel windows with modern slim frames.

Steel windows are often specified as the preferred solution by conservation officers for buildings of heritage, listed properties or buildings in a conservation area.

IQ Metal offer luxury window designs that are visually stunning, offering high thermal performances, whilst respecting and enhancing important heritage and conservation objectives.

If you’re looking to increase your thermal efficiency with a sophisticated design then industrial style steel framed windows are the perfect solution.

Modern steel windows and doors can be designed and fabricated in a traditional style however they can now provide the thermal performances of modern, thermally broken frames giving this new solution an advantage.  The advance of cold rolled steel profiles has allowed for the creation of fully thermally broken steel windows, enabling these luxury windows to adhere to, and exceed, modern Building Regulations whilst maintaining their slim and elegant finish.



Along with the innovations in slim metal window frame performances come innovations in their design. Our slim insulating steel windows can be finished in several different materials for four distinct designs.
