Versatility of steel

The industrial style of steel windows is fashionable for your home while the strong, versatile material is ideal for external windows, double doors, internal partitions, and shower screens.  

External steel windows can boast interlocked steel glazing bars, if specified, which make them incredibly strong and secure. They also require less maintenance than timber framed windows and are manufactured from a slimmer frame, giving more opportunities for light to enter your home. 

Similarly, the increasingly popular Belgium doors have interlocked steel glazing and open up the space to maximise light entering your home through a pair ofside-hunghinged opening doors flanked by fixed lights.  

Steel is also great for internal partitions. They can act as room dividers to create a broken plan living space which gives you the privacy of separate rooms without compromising on space.

The elegance of stylish steel doesn't stop there; it can also be used in the bathroom. A steel shower screen is the ideal way to combine industrial style with contemporary design. The material is easy to clean and maintain, and increases the light entering your shower space. Weather seals can also be fitted to ensure the steel screen is fully watertight.

Double glazed steel windows with 16mm Krypton filled units are ideal for historical and/or contemporary homes. They are able to reflect heat back in to the room which helps with thermal efficiency. Single glazed steel windows can still be manufactured for listed, historic and conservation buildings.

Members of the Steel Window Association offer a UK-wide service for the repair and replacement of various types of old metal windows, doors and screens, as well as being able to manufacture new fenestration which fully meets the requirements of the building regulations. Choosing an SWA member to manufacture and install your steel windows and doors ensures that you are receiving the highest standard of fabrication, installation and customer service.
