OS2 Steel Windows

17th February 2016

The Pump House Steel Windows featured in Grand Designs 

The Chesterfield ‘Pump House’ was presented as one of Grand Designs best TV renovations featured in February’s 2016 issue. The pump house project saw the transformation of an abandoned water treatment plant into luxury light-filled open plan living spaces using slim framed steel windows.

Galvanised steel windows were used to provide the property with the historical steel window frames that can visually recall the mid 19th to mid 20th century design. The traditional appearance of slim framed steel windows doesn’t compromise the excellent thermal performance from the thermally broken metal frames.

Specifically designed for the renovations and restoration of industrial glazing projects, the OS2 steel window system from Secco was a perfect solution to The Pump House replacement windows for the restoration project of a disused water treatment plant. The applied transom design recreates the traditional appearance of uninsulated traditional steel windows using modern materials, perfect for the modern project requirements whilst retaining the history and original façade.

The steel windows used were fabricated from a high quality galvanised steel providing slim sightlines within the slimmest thermally broken steel system engineered with modern thermal break technology. The steel windows provide excellent energy efficiency, ensuring that these elegant windows meet all modern day criteria’s for thermal performances.
